Introducing your ‘Christmas Jumper Day’ saviour…
This Friday is national Christmas Jumper Day. So if you rock up to the office in your uber-trendy, so-now, of-the-moment black ruffle blouse, while Janet from HR is literally beaming in her all-singing, all-dancing, all-flammable reindeer knit, you’re gonna feel a little silly, right? Ok, probably not. But still, don’t give Dave from accounts the satisfaction of calling you Scrooge all day, especially when he’s wearing the same novelty Stars Wars sweater (you know, the one with Darth Vader claiming to have ‘felt your presents’), as last year. Cos we’ve got just the thing to shut him up…
So, what’s Christmas Jumper Day all about?
Organised by the gold folk at Save the Children, they’re encouraging the nation to wear a Christmas Jumper on Friday 16th December in exchange for donating £2 to charity. The money raised (over £15,000 at the time of writing!) will go towards educating children from Surkhet district, Nepal, about the dangers of child marriage. In addition, it will help bring vital essentials – including healthcare, education, protection and food – to millions of children around the world.

How can you help?
Call it a Christmas miracle if you will, but we’ve somehow created a festive jumper that’s actually quite tasteful! In fact, if it wasn’t for the huge ‘Ho Ho Ho’ lettering, you’d probably want to wear it all year round. FYI, you can’t. Slogan tee over a slip dress? Fine. Socks under sandals? Yeah, ok. But a Christmas Jumper in June? Time to call the men in white. But we digress, because it is December, and in the spirit of Christmas, we’ve decided to donate 100% of the profits from every Ho Ho Ho Sweat sold to ‘Save the Children’.
But before you go rushing off to order one, there’s more… Whatever you guys raise from now until the 23rd December (this being the last day we can guarantee Christmas delivery), we’ll DOUBLE! Plus, for a limited time only, we’re offering £1.99 next day delivery, to ensure you get your Christmas Jumper by Friday (stick that in your pipe, Daaaaave!).
