Make-A-Wish Ireland made 46 lifetime memories for sick children and their families in Dublin last year, but they need 500 local volunteers on 31st March to continue this work.
That's the message being conveyed by Irene Timmins, Head of Fundraising for Make-A-Wish Ireland.
The call for volunteers is to support Make-A-Wish Ireland’s flagship fundraising day. Volunteers are simply asked to give a few hours of their time to sell wristbands and badges for €2 each in their local area.
Make-A-Wish is funded entirely through donations and fundraising.
To support the ongoing happiness they give to children and their families from Dublin and throughout Ireland, Make-A-Wish needs the help of volunteers in Dublin to continue their important work.
“Last year in Dublin we were able to make memories for 46 brave local children and their families", said Irene Timmins.
The value of these memories is truly immeasurable. Make-A-Wish offers positivity in an extremely dark and anxious time. Every child deserves that.
“We are approaching our 2,000th wish for Irish kids which would not be possible without our volunteers", she said. “Wishes make memories that last many lifetimes, but we cannot make them without our volunteers.”
Wish Day takes place across Ireland on 31st March & Make-A-Wish volunteers will be located throughout Dublin. To sign up to volunteer visit www.makeawish.ie or contact Daragh on (01) 2052011 / [email protected]
