Jack & Jill have signed up with a new initiative launched by the Marketing Network Group called GiftBack that encourages companies to gift their Christmas party funds to Irish charities.
Marketing Network Group is championing this campaign by developing a toolkit of creative assets to enable Irish businesses make a significant donation, that would ordinarily have been allocated to a corporate Christmas party fund.
Everyone is feeling the pinch from COVID-19 but none more severely than Irish charities, and this is a time when their services are needed more than ever. ‘Gift Back’ is an opportunity to share the seasonal goodwill and lift the community up at Christmas.
Due to COVID-19, Jack & Jill has an SOS appeal underway to fill a €200,000 funding gap and to extend the age range of children supported by the charity from five to six years of age. Jack & Jill’s frontline home nursing care and end-of-life care is more important than ever, given the lack of respite options in the community for the extra-special children it supports.
