Hints, Tips and Downloadables for your Christmas Jumper Challenge

Hints and tips

Here are our top tips to help make your Christmas Jumper Challenge a success this festive season!

  • Tell everyone about your event! If they don’t know about it, they can’t support it!
  • Tell them WHY you’re organising it - to spread some Christmas joy while helping in the fight against cancer.
  • Share details of your event on social media. Post festive photos and videos online before, during and after your event to really get everyone in the Christmas spirit!
  • Create a Facebook Event for your Christmas Jumper Challenge and invite your friends, family and co-workers.
  • Fundraise online! Sign up to Everyday Hero, JustGiving or Facebook Fundraisers to easily share details of the event and collect donations online.
  • Download a Christmas Jumper Poster below and hang it in your work canteen, local shop or community centre…anywhere to help get the word out!
  • If you’re designing your own poster, contact our fundraising elves on 1850 60 60 60 or fundraising@irishcancer.ie to use the Irish Cancer Society logo on your poster.
  • Send letters to local businesses, groups and clubs telling them why you are organising your Christmas Jumper event. Ask them to help out with sponsorship, donations or by coming along!
  • Remember to thank everyone for supporting your event. Download a Thank You Poster below to tell your guests how much you raised for the fight against cancer!
