MAKE-A-WISH Ireland made eight lifetime memories for sick children and their families in Kerry last year and they need 65 local volunteers on a day next month to continue this amazing work.
The local volunteers are needed in Kerry towns on Wish Day, which takes place on Friday, March 31, to celebrate and support the work of Make-A-Wish Ireland.
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 Kerry and throughout Ireland, Make-A-Wish needs the help of volunteers in Kerry to continue their important work.
Irene Timmins Head of Fundraising for Make-A-Wish said: “Last year in Kerry we were able to make memories for eight brave local children and their families. 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. All we are asking is a few hours from the people of Kerry on Friday 31st March to sell some of our wish bands and badges, which cost €2 each, with 100% of proceeds to Make-A-Wish.”
Make-A-Wish volunteers will be located throughout Kerry, including Dingle, Killarney, Listowel and Tralee. To sign up to volunteer visit www.makeawish.ie or contact Daragh on (01) 2052011 / firstname.lastname@example.org
