It is tradition now at this stage to have a Christmas Jumper Day in our work place. But you can’t just have one for the sake of having one. There needs to be a reason behind it and what other great cause can it be other than donating for a charity that badly needs it.
This year we agreed to donate to Barnardos. By supporting this campaign you are helping 11,300 children and families this year who need our support. This will change children’s lives and the lives of their families for the better. It is the brighter future they deserve.
Christmas Jumper Day is happening on Friday, 18th December.
There are many ways to donate:
By bank, simply drop them an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and find out their details if you want to go down this route
By cheque, you can send them an email about this or call them on 01 7080438
Online, to make a donation online, simply log onto www.barnardos.ie and click the “Donate” button in the top right hand corner.
If you want to make it a fun day in your office, simply email them and they will send you out a package containing balloons and a few other things. Let’s get into the festive spirit. We will have breakfast organised for everybody in the office too on that day.
Not into Christmas Jumpers at all but you still want to make a donation a different way? Log onto their website and check out 5 other ways possible.
