Get involved in a Christmas Jumper Day for Cystic Fibrosis
Cystic Fibrosis Ireland (CFI) has officially launched their Christmas Jumper Day 4 CF, which will take place on the 10th of December.
The aim is to raise awareness and much needed funds to help provide support and services for people with cystic fibrosis in Ireland.
As a country, Ireland has the highest rates of cystic fibrosis in the world and some of the most severe types of the diseases.
Over 1,400 people are living with cystic fibrosis here currently.
The funds would go towards thing such as support grants for people with cystic fibrosis for exercise, transplant assessment, fertility treatment and counselling, as well as research and new healthcare facilities.
If you want an excuse to wear your Christmas jumper or want to make sure the embarrassing day you spend wearing it is for a good cause, then why not talk to your employer.
Here is all you need to do, according to CFI:
- Ask you staff or colleagues to wear their Christmas Jumper to work on Christmas Jumper Day 4 CF, Friday 10th December in return for a €5 donation to support people with Cystic Fibrosis in Ireland
- Anyone not wearing a jumper gets a Bah Humbug badge in return for a €10 donation. It is all for a great cause!
- Ask your company to if they are willing to match funds raised on the day.
- Take lots of photos and share them on Social Media #CJD4CF!
