It feels like it’s been Christmas for the last 6 months in the office preparing for this, but we can finally share with you our #XmasHatSnap fundraiser! And if you think we’re bored of Christmas by now, we are just getting warmed up!

Day 2:  Take part in our #XmasHatSnap for #GivingTuesday

We’re launching our #XmasHatSnap fundraiser today, alongside the UK’s first #GivingTuesday, to encourage those of you who want to show the world why it’s good to give, whilst wearing your favourite festive hat.


To get involved:

  1. Wear a Christmas hat (wear your favourite woolly or find the quirkiest Christmas hat you can)
  2. Take a snap
  3. Upload your photo to Facebook or Twitter with the hashtag #XmasHatSnap
  4. Nominate someone from your community of social media friends to take part too
  5. Donate £3 to our social isolation appeal by texting HAT to 70660*

We’ve created an example of a tweet for you to use.

Social isolation is one of the biggest barriers faced by people with disabilities and mental health needs. So this Christmas, we want to raise awareness of those challenges whilst raising money so the people we support can organise activities to bring people together.

By sharing your hat snaps and using our hashtag #XmasHatSnap, you will be helping us spread awareness of our social isolation campaign, which you can find more information about on our website.

Why not get creative with your snaps; take a group photo of you and your friends at the Christmas market or take a Christmas hat office selfie and nominate the office next door to do the same!

We'll be sharing our favourite #XmasHatSnap every day, so keep an eye out - your Rudolf rendition or Santa selfie might just pop up!   

We can’t wait to see what you come up with! You can find more information about #XmasHatSnap here
