People across Donegal are being invited to join a virtual fundraiser to support the North West Simon Community this summer.
The North West Simon Community Dip & Donate Challenge takes place from 18th – 21st June, ending on the longest day of the year to help raise vital funds to sustain the Early Intervention and Prevention Service.
This year’s third Dip & Donate challenge will be virtual as we can’t gather together as a group.
For many of us, the longest day of the year (June 21st) symbolises the start of summer – a day where people take time to enjoy with friends and family. But when you’re homeless, you are forced to go without the simplest comforts.
There has never been a more pressing time to stand together to help the most vulnerable in our society. The North West Simon Community are heavily reliant on donations from fundraising events and need your support now more than ever. The charity supported 499 individuals and families in Donegal, Leitrim and Sligo last year.
Make a difference by signing up to North West Simon Community Dip & Donate Challenge to help raise vital funds to support the Early Intervention and Homelessness Prevention Service. The first 50 participants who sign up will be posted out a free Dip & Donate t shirt. Sign up on www.northwestsimon.ie or by contacting email@example.com
“Embrace the rush of endorphins as you enter the water and cherish the feel-good factor of knowing you’re helping prevent and resolve homelessness in your local Community”
If you can’t make it to the beach, you can always take a dip in a local lake or river (please ensure it is safe to do so at your chosen location) or even your back garden paddling pool!
As this is a Facebook challenge, the charity is asking you to create a Facebook Fundraiser simply by logging into your Facebook page, click “Create Fundraiser” click on “Charity” in the “Who are you raising money for” section and select North West Simon Community. Don’t forget to share your photos and videos of your dip and tag North West Simon Community on all social media channels. 100% of donations raised will go directly to the charity.
If you prefer to raise money off Facebook you can set up an online fundraising page at iDonate.ie or make a donation to the website at www.northwestsimon.ie/donate and in the comment box please put “Dip & Donate”.
If you require further information please don’t hesitate to contact email firstname.lastname@example.org for further details on the Dip & Donate Challenge.
