May is DoneDeal Charity Month

During the month of May, DoneDeal.ie will donate 10% of each paid ad placed to 3 very deserving charities. Every second month here at DoneDeal, 3 members of our team take turns to choose a charity that is important to them. This month, the charities selected by Lisa, Paul and Simon for our May DoneDeal Charity Month are: Educate Together Fighting Blindness Dublin Simon Community Educate Together Lisa chose to especially focus on the Educate Together second-level schools campaign. Educate Together will provide an education that will enable all students to contribute meaningfully to their communities, embrace the rights and responsibilities of citizenship in a democratic society, and develop the knowledge and skills necessary to live their lives and build their careers in the 21st century. Fighting Blindness Fighting Blindness is involved with rare, genetic, age-related and degenerative conditions and represents the 224,000 adults and children in Ireland who are affected by severe vision impairment. The reason Paul chose Fighting Blindness is because his mother suffers from age related macular degeneration. At the moment she still has sight in one eye but is expecting to lose that sight also. Coming to terms with this is very difficult when you have been independent in your life for so long. Fighting blindness provides very valuable support and research into this area and this is primarily where DoneDeal’s donation will be going. Dublin Simon Community The Dublin Simon Community listen to people who turn to them for help and do everything they can to support them to move out of homelessness into independent living. They strive to empower people to access, secure and retain a home of their own by reducing the reliance on short-term emergency accommodation and providing permanent supported housing for people to sustain a home in their local community.
