I started this “movement” the week commencing 14th of May 2018 and hope to do this for as long as conceivably possible! The idea is I receive information about an Irish based charity and a T shirt which is paid for (or if you want send to me for free) and then I will spend the Monday to Friday of that week wearing and sharing information about said charity. Details will be shared on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn in my channels and Facebook Lives, Periscopes and Instagram Lives as well.
There is no fee for this and I will do this each day at a time convenient to me and I will then share liberally across my platforms.
If you would like to partake of this FREE visibility marketing then please ensure you send me a URL/link to a T Shirt so I can purchase one and please ensure you send me an email explaining where I can find information about your cause. This is to ensure I speak with some measure of knowledge in the area! If you have a day of awareness coming up with regards to your charity, please let me know in advance and I will make sure I am wearing the T shirt for that week.
- 1 charity a week
- I will sometimes have to be out of the shirt in order to do my own work but will wear it the rest of the day!
- A week in this case is Monday to Friday 8am till I no longer look fit to be Public
- I will share your handle, brand image, information etc on my platforms to include Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook and Instagram.
- I will do “Lives” as well
- I DO NOT get paid for this!
- I will not be naming names of people, just Brand Name(s)
- These will be done at a convenient time for me as I work and have a family
- If I don’t have a T Shirt in time for a week, I will do 1 day a charity until I get one
- If I think of anything else to add here I will update, please keep checking back!
Charities Supported so far:
- Light it Up Gold
- Bee for Battens
- Liams Lodge
BUMBLEance is a local Irish nationally registered charity that is the most technologically advanced ambulance on the planet. It has games like SONY Playstation, IPad’s, audio and video entertainment and even its own wifi. This is all to reduce the stress to any children on the ambulance as they travel to treatments and hospital here or overseas.
When Tony & Mary Heffernan were told that their only daughter Saoirse had Batten Disease on the 25th of September 2009, they left the hospital in Dublin with no information about Batten Disease, what to expect or where to look for help. They vowed that this would have to change.
In March 2010, the Heffernan family received more bad news when their son Liam was also diagnosed with Batten Disease.
Tony and Mary decided to set up the Saoirse Foundation to provide parents, families and all those affected by Batten Disease on the island of Ireland with support, networking and a credible source of information
They are here for the sick children of Ireland, both from rural and urban areas, who are long term sick and /or seriously disabled, who need professional ambulance transport services. Catering for their every need en route to and from the principal centres of care.
Sadly both of their children have now since passed of this disease but Liam has a legacy left called Liams Lodge which is progressing well but will need our continued support over the coming months and years.
Myself and about 30 others walked over hot coals for this amazing charity, if you feel you can volunteer your time or sponsor/raise money for them, please either contact them or myself and we will do our best to support you.
Can you become a “Bee for Battens“?
