Jack and Jill needs to raise €1million through this years Christmas Appeal.
“With more children under our care than ever before, public support is vital in helping us raise €1 million by Christmas to keep our service going – a service that is a lifeline to many of our families. We have a big fundraising mountain to climb to keep us going to Christmas, and beyond, and we need the public to support local Jack and Jill families in their community by signing up as a monthly donor, or by buying something from our Christmas Gift Collection.
There’s lots to choose from including stunning candles from Paul and William Costelloe, our ‘Odlums Big Book of Baking’, Incognito Art Prints, signed by our wonderful Incognito artists, Gift of Time cards and exclusively designed Christmas cards from Kildare artist Laura Dempsey aka Pickled Pom Pom. By making a donation or purchase people are supporting local families through home nursing care hours that translate into a real gift of time this Christmas”
– Carmel Doyle, CEO of The Jack and Jill Children’s Foundation
By Supporting Jack and Jill this Christmas you will support families like parents Shane and Clare McHugh, with their three children, including four-year-old Ben who receives Jack and Jill nursing care, that gift of time is a huge support. Ben’s condition remains undiagnosed, despite extensive tests. He suffers from epilepsy, autism, sleep, sensory and autonomic disorders, and can’t feed himself, speak or walk.
“Jack and Jill provide us with a blanket of care and security around Ben. Knowing that he is in the best hands, enables us as parents to prioritise other things, whether that be quality time with our other children or to get a night’s sleep to function through the week.
It can be a very difficult transition to open your home up to others, but when you have a child that has complex medical needs and requires 24/7 care; it is the Jack and Jill service that enables you to have a life as a family, creating memories for all your children that they will hopefully cherish and carry into adulthood. This is especially true at milestones throughout the year and none more so than at Christmas – the importance of being together at home as a family, the arrival of Santa, the tree, the presents, the smiles, the laughter, and the creation of new memories together. Christmas can be even more poignant for families with children with life-limiting conditions and we are forever mindful of not taking any milestone for granted.”
– Jack and Jill Dad, Shane McHugh
