- Christmas FM is asking you to help Give the Gift of Childhood to 5,000 children who need it most
Christmas FM, the much-loved festive music station that raises money for charity and spreads seasonal goodwill across Ireland will be running its annual Donation Day on Tuesday 20th December to raise funds for children’s charities Barnardos, Barretstown, Make-A-Wish Ireland and The Community Foundation for Ireland through The Magic of Christmas initiative.
During the 12 hour long festive radiothon from 7am – 7pm on Tuesday 20th December, Christmas FM will be asking you to help Give the Gift of Childhood to 5,000 children who need it most. Donations can be made through www.christmasfm.com or by calling 0818 911 977.
Here’s an example of what a listener’s donation can do:
- €50 could cover a month of warm, nutritious breakfasts for a vulnerable child
- €100 could help to fund one of Barretstown’s essential therapeutic programmes for a whole day
- €200 can help towards the granting of a wish for a seriously-ill child in your community, to make a lasting difference to their quality of life and well-being
The funds raised will go directly towards helping vulnerable children in our communities affected by traumatic life events such as poverty, abuse, neglect and bereavement, and to supporting children whose lives are affected by serious childhood illness. By donating to The Magic of Christmas, you will….
Give the Gift of Childhood to 5,000 children who need it most, because every
child deserves Magic at Christmas.
Garvan Rigby, Co-Founder of Christmas FM, says: “This is our 15th year on air and a massive milestone for everyone at Christmas FM. Over the last 15 years we have raised over €3,000,000 for a range of charities and we will continue to keep raising vital funds with the generous help and support of our listeners. In addition to fundraising throughout the festive season, our Donation Day will help us raise as much as possible for The Magic of Christmas initiative and we’re encouraging listeners to donate and get involved.”
Commenting on Donation Day, the charity partners jointly said: “We would like to thank The Magic of Christmas for working with our charities as the official charity partners for the next three years. We’re really looking forward to Donation Day – Tuesday 20 December – and hope that Christmas FM listeners will donate to help transform the lives of children in communities across Ireland. With the support of listeners, we really can make a difference and Give the Gift of Childhood to those who need it most, because every child deserves Magic at Christmas.”
