Why do we celebrate Christmas Jumper Day?

You can also go bigger by organising a group of people you know to take part.

School classes, employee teams, book clubs, and other kinds of social groups are perfect for doing a group event.

To make it even easier for if you're registering at work or somewhere else you can set up your very own team text code.

You'll then be able to share this with everyone taking part so they can text in their donation.
