We're encouraging everyone to put their hats on display for Hattitude Day!
On the 20th of December, we’ll be asking the nation to show their visible support for Text Santa by wearing a hat to work, college or school in return for a small donation to Text Santa.
Christmas might seem a long way off, but with 6 weeks and counting, Santa's little helpers are already busily preparing for our annual festive charity appeal.
Today we're celebrating the launch of our very own charity appeal website where we'll be encouraging everyone to put their hats on display for ‘Hattitude Day’ and help raise awareness and donations for our six chosen UK charities.
From November onwards we'll be looking for 'Santa's little Helpers' to join us in raising awareness and donations for our 6 chosen charities.
This year its all about having 'Hattitude' and in November we'll be launching our very own fundraising webpage, packed with festive ideas and resources that you can use - all with a 'hat' theme!
In the meantime, if you want to get started with your own fundraising ideas, why not set up your very own Text Santa Just Giving page. We might be a Christmas charity appeal, but the earlier we start fundraising the more we raise for our 6 chosen charities.
Up and down the country, people got involved in some festive fun to raise money for Text Santa in 2012. Here are just a few ways that you made a difference:
