Wear a Jumper: The simplest way of getting involved with Christmas Jumper Day 2020, is, of course, to wear eye-catching festive knitwear on the day. You can jazz up your sweater by adding sequins and other Christmas motifs. The aim is to look as bright and Christmassy as Buddy the Elf. Don’t worry, and you do not have to buy a new one, you can knit your own or get crafty with an old one.

Charity: COVID-19 has made life even more difficult, for kids and families who are already struggling to get by. For kids at school, the recommended donation amount is 1 euro. Save the Children have outlined how the donation would help, highlighting the COVID-19 essentials.

Virtual Event: Because of the pandemic, raising funds physically, may not be a great idea, but this year, fundraising goes virtual. Save The Children are also organising many competitions over Zoom to raise money.

These are some and primary ways to celebrate Christmas Jumper Day 2020. The main idea is to raise funds for the children who need it. COVID-19 is making life more challenging. And it is essential now more than ever to participate in the campaign and protect the magic of children around the world.
