A little love goes a long way
This Valentine’s season, you can send a letter of love and support to the sick children and front-line staff in CHI hospitals and urgent care centres.
Children's Health Foundation has launched its new Valentine's Love Letters campaign to raise vital funds to support sick children in CHI at Crumlin, Temple Street, Tallaght and Connolly.
The past two years have been some of the toughest for CHI’s little patients, their families and frontline staff.
By writing a Love Letter this Valentine’s weekend, people across Ireland can send a message of love and support to sick children, their families and front-line staff, while also donating to support the vital work that happens across CHI hospitals and urgent care centres every minute of every day.
You can buy a Love Letter note for €2 at Shaws in Waterford City and Dungarvan.
Simply write a message of love, kindness and support to sick children and the front-line staff in CHI at Crumlin, Temple Street, Tallaght and Connolly and stick it up in the large heart in-store and help brighten the days of those in CHI hospitals and urgent care centres.
Shaws, Tesco and Clayton and Maldron Hotels are taking part in the initiative, with love letter notes available to buy in a range of participating Tesco and Shaws stores and Clayton and Maldron hotels across the country.
If you can’t make it to a participating partner, no problem! Simply visit Children’s Health Foundation's website and write a digital Love Letter whilst making a donation. The campaign will conclude on February 15.
Denise Fitzgerald, Chief Executive of Children’s Health Foundation said:
