Tomorrow is the day to get silly with the woolly, and don your most festive jumper to raise funds for Save The Children. Plenty of people are joining in workplaces and schools across the country, each donating a pound or more for the privilege of looking a bit daft. You may think a pound doesn’t go very far- but actually even that small sum can be the difference between life and death- for example it would pay for 9 rehydration treatment sachets for children suffering from deadly diarrhoea.

If you aren’t clubbing together at work or at a social group, you can make your donation via text message- simply text the word WOOLLY to 70050 to donate a £1. (You will be billed £1 plus your standard text message rate- and Save The Children receive at least 99p depending on your network)
Also if like me you work from home or are a stay at home mum or for whatever reason don’t have a jumper gang to hang out with on Friday, why not join in at the Christmas Jumper Day Bloggers (and blog readers) Twitter Party. Pop on your sweater, decorate yourself with a liberal sprinkling of glitter, do your best selfie pose, and tweet the pic along with #XmasJumperDay . Don’t forget to text in your donation too, then join in the cross blogging network spirit of joy while having a festive tweet and a virtual (or actual if you have one to hand) mince pie! It all takes place at 1pm tomorrow and you can find out more over at Thinly Spread.
What do you mean you want to see me looking daft too? Well. It is like this. I am a Christmas jumper humbug. I really did try, I went to the shops especially to find one, but was suddenly struck by the ludicrousness of spending twenty quid on something I would never wear again so I could give one pound to Save The Children, so I gave them the twenty quid instead and came home without a woolly tribute to the festive season.
