Jedward created an electric atmosphere and made the day/year of over 1700 school children when they visited the two winning schools of the Jack & Jill Phones for boards competition on Thursday the 23rd of June. The two schools St. Colmcille’s National School, Knocklyon who collected the most phones overall at 2293 phones and Presentation Primary, Drogheda who collected the most phones per head at 5.8 phones per head received the surprise of their lives when Jedward literally bounded into their classrooms. The screams were deafening and Jedward took time to interact with all 1764 children.
Our thanks to everyone who took part in the competition as all the phones collected will go a long way towards helping Jack & Jill continue to help the families of the 270 children currently under our wing. The schools campaign has raised 300,000 phones which will allow Jack & Jill to look after 100 babies for one whole year!
Congratulations to all concerened, to Jack and Jill for all they do, to the children and families of St Colmcilles school who embraced the drive to collect the most phones for the competition, to all the schools who took part as we are all winners in our goal to help the Jack and Jill Foundation and finally to Jedward who with their positivity, energy and of course lipstick made us want to win!
