Will you be taking part in Dressed by the Kids Day in support of Oxfam?

This year Oxfam are launching an exciting new major fundraising event called Dressed by the Kids’ Day and on 29 April 2016, they’re hoping to unite the country in a day of completely uncoordinated clothing chaos as families let the little one’s loose on their outfit selection for the day.

From sequin tops paired with baseball caps and cartoon socks, to your favourite suit jacket worn over that novelty neon vest from your hey-days, it’s time to embrace the unorthodox, throw open the wardrobe doors and let the little one’s loose. We’re hoping to see Parents, Aunts, Uncles and Grandparents nationwide wearing kids’ creative outfit concoctions to the office, on the school run or just loudly and proudly at home.

Dressed by the Kids’ Day promises to unite families in a day of fun interaction designed to help raise vital funds for Oxfam in their fight against world poverty.

Did you know that around 1 billion people are living in extreme poverty. This means that millions of families don’t have the things they need to live safely and in good health.

Oxfam thinks everybody should have enough to eat and drink. They think grown-ups should be able to earn money to support their families and think children should be able to learn. That’s why Oxfam have been working with the world’s poorest people for more than 70 years, in 90 different countries. They won’t stop until poverty has ended for good.

  • £10 could buy chickens (otherwise known as egg factories) for a hungry family.
  • £27 could help train a teacher so that many more children can be educated.

In its inaugural year, Oxfam expect to see families across the country embrace the concept and boldly showcasing their new looks on 29 April. How wacky people choose to go with their outfit is limited only by the kids’ creativity and the outlandish items they’re able to find in the back of your wardrobe. Cue lots of giggles from the little one’s as you give them free reign to become your stylist for the day.

Those embracing the opportunity and taking part in Dressed by the Kids’ Day, will support Oxfam’s fight against poverty by seeking sponsorship from friends and family. Tim Hunter, Head of Fundraising for Oxfam, comments: “On April 29th Oxfam encourages the nation to transform its look to help transform people’s lives in our first-ever Dressed by the Kids Day fundraising initiative. This major new event is an exciting venture for Oxfam. We wanted to design a fundraising event that felt fresh and involved the whole family. It will come as no surprise that children are especially excited by Dressed by the Kids’ Day, so we can’t wait to let their imaginations and creativity run wild.

  1. I love this idea! We love to help with fundraising in our home. My kids are a little young for this but we will find some way of helping them choose, April 29th is also my little boys birthday so it will be an extra treat for him. 🙂

  2. This is such a fun idea for fundraising. It’ll be fun to see all the parent pictures on social media that day, just imagine the creative fashion! 🙂
