Volunteers from Donegal will join over more than 700 volunteers nationwide to support the annual fundraising campaign of Make-A-Wish Ireland, the charity that grants the wishes of children living with life-threatening illnesses.
On March 29, the annual fundraising event will see volunteers bag packing in more than 65 Tesco supermarkets nationwide and collecting donations on streets around the country as well as hosting other support events to raise much-needed funds for the charity.
Recent research shows that children who have wishes granted are more likely to build the physical and emotional strength they need to fight a serious illness.
This improves their quality of life and produces better health outcomes.
Susan O’Dwyer, Make-A-Wish Ireland CEO, said: “Wish Day is a day where we can all help make wishes come true for children living with life-threatening illnesses.
“We are hugely dependent on the generosity of the Irish public. Make-A-Wish has granted more than 2,400 wishes for Irish children since 1992 which would not be possible without the help of men, women and children around Ireland.”Tags:
