I ask you to consider donating funds to the Children’s hospital Crumlin as a substitute for buying wedding favor’s or gifts for your guests. Let your gift be the gift of vital support to save sick children’s lives in Ireland. What you do is donate funds to the charity through our “Do a child a favor!” campaign. We have teamed up with the Children’s Medical Research Foundation, the fundraising arm for the Children’s Hospital Crumlin in order to raise much needed funds for the hospital.
I have myself raised much funds for the charity after my own daughter contracted the fatal strain of meningitis on Halloween 31st October, 2007. Thankfully because of the quick reaction and hard work of the medical staff at the hospital Katie made a full recovery after spending time in Intensive Care and a week in hospital. You never know when a child close to you may need the use of the hospital.
Raised to date €17,730 for Childrens’ Hospital and €2,950 for Laura Lynn
Laura Lynn provide palliative care and support for children with life-limiting conditions and their families. Our holistic approach to care enables us to support the whole family, allowing parents to be ‘Mum and Dad’ rather than full-time carers.
When you donate money to our appeal, we get little cards printed for each of your guests notifying them that you have decided as your gift to them to donate money to the children’s hospital and or Laura Lynn. For as little as €2 per guest you can help save children’s lives and help those with life limiting conditions.
