Over the Christmas period the spirit of giving was very evident. Even though we couldn’t come together we still managed to raise a grand total of €6,276!
We would like to thank everyone who got involved whether you took part in our Blossom Dip in the Sea or donated some of your own money, we really appreciate it! We wouldn’t be where we are today without our supporters! Here are a few special mentions to the companies and events that took time into raising some funds for Blossom Ireland.
This year, our annual Blossom Dip was made a virtual event due to COVID-19 and we still managed to raise €3,500! Thank you to everyone along the coast for getting involved!
We had amazing partnerships with some wonderful companies over the Christmas period and we would like to give them a special thank you for their part in fundraising!
Clever Clogs raised €400 for Blossom Ireland after they sent a thoughtful letter out to parents of the children in the Montessori asking if they were planning on purchasing gifts for staff members that they instead donate to Blossom. This gesture was so generous and we are very grateful.
The Arboretum kindly ran not 1 but 2 fundraisers for us! The Arboretum sold Santa stamps for letters to the north pole for Blossom Ireland and then had a Christmas jumper day on Christmas Eve and in total raised €676! It was a pleasure to be the Arboretum’s chosen charity for their Santa letters this year!
Bear’s Little Fish also generously offered a gift wrap service over Christmas and the proceeds went to Blossom Ireland. In total Bear’s Little Fish raised €100! Thank you so much to Mary Ann for setting this up for Blossom!
Last but certainly not least, Snap donated a contribution of what they made on their personalised Christmas card range to Blossom Ireland! Snap raised a grand total of €1,600! Thanks to Snap for the amazing donation!
The money raised over Christmas will ensure the continued delivery of our programmes as outlined in our Urgent Fundraising Appeal which you can read more about below.
