Thanks to Paula Malone Carty Photography for the photos: www.paulamalonecarty.com We’re kicking off 2015 with another fabulous result from the DoneDeal Charity Month. During January’s #DoneDealCharityMonth, thanks to all the paid ads you DoneDealers placed, we were able to donate a massive €33,282 to these 3 charities: LauraLynn Children’s Hospice Wexford Women’s Refuge Gay Switchboard Ireland The 3 charities recently visited the DoneDeal offices and shared with us how much this donation from DoneDealers will help: Michelle Byers, Corporate Fundraiser, LauraLynn Children’s Hospice, said of the donation: “This donation from DoneDeal means so much to LauraLynn and will be put to great use developing our ‘Family & Sibling Camps’, which allow our children and their families to experience a true family holiday together. We have big development plans this year, on top of the huge amount we need to raise just to run LauraLynn. We simply could not continue developing our services without support like this, so we want to say a big thank you to all the DoneDealers for contributing to this campaign.” Meave O’Brien, Chairperson, Voluntary Board of Management of Wexford Women’s Refuge, said: “Wexford Women’s Refuge are very grateful for this generous donation from DoneDeal. Donations help the work of the refuge in the delivery of a quality service to women and children when they are at their most vulnerable. This donation will go toward the continuing development and improvement of our facilities, as well as our equally important outreach and support services.” Maria Keogh, Director, Gay Switchboard Ireland said: “We’re absolutely thrilled that DoneDeal chose to support us in this way and even more honoured to be the first LGBT charity to feature as part of their charity month. This donation will have a hugely positive impact on the services we can provide to the LGBT community and allow us to expand in ways that otherwise wouldn’t have been possible. From all of us at Gay Switchboard Ireland, we’d like to thank everyone at DoneDeal for their support in this crucial time for the equality of LGBT people in Ireland and to all DoneDeal customers for placing the ads that helped benefit all the charities in January.” #Charity
