Sponsored Video: Save The Children Den Day

I don't know about your children, but mine are at their happiest making dens. Old blankets, sheets, their duvets and pillows all come out. Giant cardboard boxes are another favourite. Their imaginations run wild and more often than not their den turns into a hotel which serves plastic food! If this sounds like something your children do, then you might be interested in the latest campaign from Save the Children. You could help to save lives from your living room. By signing up now you can get a super Den Day kit, with advice and ideas on how to make a fantastic den in your home.

It sounds like fun doesn't it? But why take part? There is a serious reason behind this fun campaign.

Save the Children Den Day will help raise funds for people like Anna Mae and her family. In 2013 a Typhoon hit their home in the Philippines. Their home was destroyed. Save the Children helped the family, by providing them with tarpaulin for shelter as well as utensils to cook.

Unfortunately there are many other families across the world that do and will need help in similar circumstances. Save the Children does whatever it takes to help children wherever disaster or conflict strikes.

Den Day will be taking place over Friday 29th May - 6th June, meaning that schools, families and groups can all take part on a day that suits them. Maybe you could set up camp in your school hall, or arrange a Den Day Sleepover with your friends. Whatever you do, make sure that you get your sponsors to claim Gift Aid on their donations if applicable. It is a great way of adding 25% to your fundraising total. To find out more or to sign up, head over to the Save the Children website.

A great cause, and, let alone the children, any excuse for me to hide in a den for the day!

We love den building :) We usually use our chairs, blankets and string lights (very safe - I've checked!) They're battery operated too!
