It's Friday 13th December which means it's Christmas Jumper Day 2019! We are joining in the festivities and dressed in our snazziest sweaters we're raising money for Save the Children. Work is much more fun when you’re wearing a jumper with a penguin on it. Or a reindeer.
Taking part in Christmas Jumper Day not only gets us in a festive mood but helps bring essential healthcare, education, protection, and food to millions of children around the world who are missing out on these basics.
Every employee at Catsurveys that donned their snazziest Christmas Jumper has donated £2.00 to take part and will be doing some serious good around the world. Every £2.00 donation could change a child’s life. It could help them grow up healthy and safe, and get an education, so they can grow up to be who they want to be.
Thank you to everyone in the Catsurveys team that donated towards this worthy cause. With your help, we could raise even more for Save the Children!
If you would like to support Save the Children and Christmas Jumper Day, please text TEAMCAT to 70050 to donate £2.00 to Save the Children.

Gerald’s story [source]:
Gerald lives in the Philippines. He’s full of energy and a skilled surfer. He’s also a quiet hero. When Save The Children first met him in November 2013, Gerald and his family were reeling from the impact of Typhoon Haiyan.
At nine years old, Gerald had shepherded everyone to safety when the storm hit. He led his family to a nearby school, where they sheltered while the typhoon raged around them.
“The houses looked as if they were dancing in the wind before they collapsed,” exclaimed Gerald. “And the winds were getting stronger and stronger. My father was blown from here to the church!"
Luckily, Gerald and his family were all OK. And with your support, Save the Children were able to help his community get back on its feet.
With your support Save the Children were able to…
- provide tarpaulins to help protect homes in the area from the rain,
- distribute hygiene kits including essentials to help children and families keep clean and avoid water-based diseases,
- install emergency toilets in case plumbing stopped working,
- distribute cash to buy crucial food supplies
