Green Mary News: International Office, Study Abroad and Student Recruitment Marketing Supporting the Text Santa Campaign

Text Santa is a charity initiative set up in 2011 by ITV to support UK-based charities during the Christmas period. The appeal to the public is to donate money mainly via text donation and profits from merchandise.

In 2015, the appeal supported three UK-based charities: Macmillan Cancer Support, Make-A-Wish Foundation and Save the Children.

Since its launch in 2011, Text Santa has raised more than £32 million, with 100% of all donations going directly to the nominated charities.

In fact, this year’s annual Text Santa appeal has been the most successful ever, increasing the total raised by a staggering 75% from the previous year.

As the campaign supported not just one, but three amazing charities, we thought it would be a great opportunity to participate in it and raise money for some great causes.

So the teams in cb105 decided to support the campaign by dressing up for the Christmas Jumper Day. We had a lot of fun on the day and managed to raise £37!
