There is one thing that’s making London smile this season. The fashionable and dashing royal family of Windsor gave their permission to dress their wax counterparts at London’s Madame Tussauds with Ugly Christmas Sweater for a good cause. Save the Children, a non-government organization focused on the protection of children’s rights in developing countries, is hosting a Christmas Jumper Day on December 16, 2016. The event intends to raise funds to support the organization’s global effort to support and provide relief among children in struggling countries all over the world.
In support of Save the Children’s effort, the administrator of the mentioned wax museum, with the consent of Queen Elizabeth II and her family, dressed the Royal family’s wax version with ugly Christmas sweater to help raise awareness for the event. The event encourages the participants to wear an Ugly Christmas Sweater during the event and at the same time, donate to the foundation for a god cause.
The wax versions of the Windsors are drawing attention not only for the good cause behind their wearing of ugly sweaters but more so because they still look particularly elegant even in a sweater called “ugly”. The Royal family in ugly Christmas sweaters is among the main attractions of the museum especially that it also has their pet corgis in ugly Christmas sweaters too!
The exhibit will run all throughout the holiday season so you can marvel at the Royal Family even if it is just their wax replica. Queen Elizabeth II’s permission to garb their wax version in ugly sweaters indicates the Queen’s soft spot when it comes to children not just in the United Kingdom but more so amongst needy children all over the world. To show your support for the event, you can also wear your Ugly Christmas Sweater and participate on the activity on December 16 or you can also visit the wax museum of Madame Tussauds London as a manifestation of support. You can donate some amount on the event itself or you can send your donation to Save the Children.
