‘Christmas is Love’, the 2020 fundraising video for Christmas Spirit LK, has been officially released this evening.
Watch the video, filmed in Donegal and starring Ethan Barron and Maria Howard, here:
This topical and heartwarming video is the fourth installment from Christmas Spirit LK initiative, which has raised almost €12,000 for local charities and Letterkenny University Hospital in recent years.
This year’s campaign has a special focus on spreading joy and love after a difficult year for many. A GoFundMe campaign (Click HERE to visit) is being shared alongside the video to raise money for local groups, voluntary organisations and charities in the county and community.
The story of Christmas is Love centres around a little 9 year old boy called Lucas and the love he has for his granny.
He hasn’t seen his Granny since March, but he knows what he’s doing is keeping her safe.
He really misses her, and he’s going to get her something special for Christmas
Lucas travels the whole way into town to get his granny the best present in the world.
But Lucas, doesn’t really know about “Covid-19”
His mum says you have to wash your hands a lot and don’t shake hands or hug.
Lucas gets a shock when he gets to town and all the shops are closed.
With his plans dashed, he gives up …
But the realisation he has might just be the most magical present that Lucas could have given his Granny for Christmas.
