Gift card provider One4all has revealed that its annual Shop4Crumlin charity campaign has raised a whopping €39,000 in 2019.
The campaign recently returned for a fifth year; over that time the initiative has raised over €140,000 for CMRF – the principle fundraising body of CHI at Crumlin. All Shop4Crumlin monies raised go directly to the CMRF Giggle Fund, a fund dedicated to bringing a smile to its brave patients’ faces.
Approximately 365 children attend CHI at Crumlin daily from across the island of Ireland. Hospitals can be a place of extreme stress for children, but the Giggle Fund works tirelessly to help bring a smile to those little faces. The Giggle Fund’s main goal is to make the children’s lives as comfortable as possible by organising birthday parties, pizza nights or even surprising them with a new supply of toys and books.
One4all’s annual Shop4Crumlin campaign sees Ireland’s leading gift card company donate 50c to the CMRF Giggle Fund for every single transaction made during the campaign period with any of One4all’s 8,500+ retail and online partners. Additionally, this year One4all teamed up with Argos, Arnotts, Debenhams, Littlewoods Ireland and Life Style Sports, with each of these retailers matching One4all’s transition donation, bringing the total donation up to €1 per transaction on purchases made in their stores.
Commenting on the success of the campaign, One4all group CEO Michael Dawson said he is thrilled at the ongoing result. “In just five years, One4all Gift Card holders across Ireland have helped us to raise over €140,000 for CHI at Crumlin.
“The Giggle Fund is an incredibly worthy cause,” he said, “and a great resource for patients and their families. We thank everyone who used their One4all Gift Cards during Shop4Crumlin week and also the retailers who generously matched our donations.”
