This year, Save the Children has recruited three little philanthro-pigs to raise awareness of the biggest, silliest Christmas Jumper day ever.
Save the Children’s annual Christmas Jumper Day is taking place on Friday 14th December and ahead of the big day, three miniature pigs from Kew Little Pigs have modelled their favourite festive knitwear to help make the world better with a sweater. Accessorised with bauble tinsel and miniature Santa hats, the pigs posed up a storm to promote the festive fundraiser which is aiming to raise over £4 million for children in the UK and around the world.
Rosie May, strawberry blonde with black spots, is the largest and most relaxed of our philanthro-pigs. She spends her days lying in the sun and loves brussels sprouts. Mia our monochrome pig was the runt of her litter, she’s very friendly and not at all camera shy! Our third and final pig is Noel, the energetic diva of the group, he found it tricky to stand still and loves to snack on bananas.
In celebration of the year of the pig in 2019, Kew Little Pigs have announced that 20% of each hour-long visit will be donated to Save the Children, from Christmas Jumper Day onwards.
Olivia from Kew Little Pigs says: “Kew Little Pigs are proud to be partnered with Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day and delighted to be supporting them by donating 20% of all hour-long visits to Save the Children throughout 2019. This is a brilliant cause and I hope the beautiful pictures of the pigs bring joy to people. It doesn’t matter who you are; a parent, a pig, an office worker, on December 14th this year there is no excuse not to put on your Christmas jumper and help Save the Children give hope to children all over the world.”
To get involved simply pop your sweater on, dig into your piggy bank and donate £2 to Save the Children (£1 if you’re at school) atchristmasjumperday.org
