It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, especially with the frost! And to kick off the festivities we’ve got the Christmas music going, mince pies and cookies all round, and we’ve chucked on our favourite festive jumpers for Christmas Jumper Day 2018!
We’re celebrating Christmas Jumper Day 2018 in aid of Save the Children – an international charity to help create a brighter future for children around the world. The charity was founded 99 years ago and has continually provided relief and support to children in developing countries by offering them better education, health care and economic opportunities as well as providing emergency aid in natural disasters, war and other conflicts.
By simply donating £2 per jumper, we’re raising enough money to make a difference to a child’s life. £19 could provide an emergency shelter kit to make sure displaced children have a roof over their heads. A £37 donation could pay for chickens for a family in Afghanistan, providing them with a vital source of income. A £44 donation could pay for a healthy baby hamper for a new born child in Uganda. Even just £2 alone could pay for antibiotics for five children suffering from pneumonia, one of the biggest killers of children in developing countries.
The possibilities of help are endless and the funds raised from Christmas Jumper Day can provide phenomenal benefit across the globe, and here at Site Equip we are proud to be supporting such an amazing cause!
As you can see from the photos we’ve had a very fun and festive day, and all for a good cause! £2 donated to Save the Children can make a huge difference and save the lives of children across the world, so get involved and donate!
