Roadside convenience retailer Applegreen plc, has launched “Get Creative for Good” in aid of the Irish Youth Foundation.
Applegreen is inviting the children of Ireland to unleash their creativity and draw what makes them happy. For each drawing shared to either Instagram (@applegreen_plc) or Facebook (@goapplegreen) tagging Applegreen and using the #powerofcommunity hashtag, the Applegreen Charitable Fund will donate €3 to the Irish Youth Foundation.
Dáire Nolan, Managing Director for Ireland said: “This family-friendly activity is the perfect way to keep children entertained, to stay safe, brighten people’s news feeds and raise vital funds to support vulnerable children in Ireland. During these unprecedented times it’s difficult for children and their parents, so we hope this will go some way to lift all our spirits whilst also supporting our charity partner at the same time.”
The Irish Youth Foundation support children living in the most vulnerable circumstances in Ireland. The fallout from the Covid-19 crisis will have a devastating impact for thousands of children who were already living in disadvantaged circumstances before this crisis visited their door. The immediate and urgent issues are nourishment, as hot meals usually supplied by schools and after-school clubs, lack of connectivity and a huge change in educational arrangements.
Running until April 3rd, prizes for the top three drawings will be selected by the Irish Youth Foundation. For more information, please see the Irish Youth Foundation website https://iyf.ie/events-campaigns/
