Looking Back: Christmas Jumper Day
Last Christmas, staff members at Perpetual Fostering all donned a festive jumper and donated money to Save the Children for Christmas Jumper Day. Having raised a total of £58.57, we think it’s a good idea to look back at Save the Children and remember what our money was raised for.
We all very much enjoyed wearing a silly Christmas jumper, but there was a serious side: the money raised helped save children’s lives. Save the Children ensure that the money raised goes to brilliant causes; for example, the money provides essentials like healthcare, education, protection and food to the millions of children around the world who are missing out on the most basic support.
Every year, millions of children around the world die before their fifth birthday from easily preventable diseases like malaria, diarrhoea and pneumonia. Many more are forgotten simply because they were born in the wrong place, or because they are girls, refugees, disabled or from a minority. Supporting Save the Children and giving donations will help them to achieve their goal of giving every child the chance to grow up healthy and happy.
We would also like to say a huge thank you to those who supported our cause and donated money. Each £2 donated will surely have gone a long way.
