Support Enable Ireland this Christmas with Homesense Hang A Bauble Campaign

This Christmas, Homesense is encouraging shoppers to once again help raise funds for Enable Ireland through its annual Hang a Bauble campaign. The initiative which supports children with disabilities across Ireland is kicking off in stores nationwide from the 11th November.
 
To get involved, simply go to Homesense stores in Cork and Dublin and donate €1 at the till to receive a paper bauble, which you can then hang on the special Homesense Christmas tree in store.

All money raised in both the Dublin and Cork Homesense stores will go towards Enable Ireland Children's Services in each area.  In Tallaght, Co Dublin, we provide therapy and support services for over 200 children with disabilities and their families each year; including occupational therapy, paediatrics, physiotherapy, psychology, social work, speech and language therapy and early education. We have been providing services in the area since 1994.  

Money raised in the Cork store will go towards our campaign to complete their state-of-the-art Children’s Services Centre in Curraheen. The old centre was no longer suitable for the needs of current and future generations of children with disabilities in Cork.  In April 2019, we were delighted to welcome the first families and parents into the new Lavanagh Centre in Curraheen. From this centre, we will provide vital therapies and rehabilitation services to over 800 children with disabilities.  But we still need help to raise just over €1 million to ensure this special Cork project is finished as soon as possible.

There are several ways that Homesense shoppers can show their support for Enable Ireland this Christmas. Additional products are also available in store, with a donation from each sale going towards Enable Ireland - 

•    Christmas cards: €5.99, donation €3.00
•    Large bag for life: €1.49, donation €0.25
•    Medium bag for life: €1.29, donation €0.20

Together with its sister brand TK Maxx, Homesense has raised over €3.4 million for Enable Ireland.
