The Jack and Jill Children’s Foundation is aiming to raise €1m through its Home for Christmas Appeal, writes Rachel Cunningham.

There are over 400 families in communities across the country, including 92 children in Dublin, who are hoping to spend the festive season together this Christmas.   

The fundraiser will directly fund 55,000 hours of in-home nursing care, to support children with highly complex and life-limiting medical conditions, allowing them stay at home, in their community, where they belong.

The Jack and Jill Christmas Collection, includes a Find a Diamond candle and diffuser sets from Paul and William Costelloe, limited edition tote bags designed by artist Miriam Smithers, teacher gift cards and exclusively designed Christmas cards from Kildare artist Laura Dempsey, a.k.a Pickled Pom Pom. 

This Christmas, Dubliners can give the gift of time to families cared for by Jack and Jill, with a Christmas donation or a gift purchase from a wide range of stunning gifts translating into in-home nursing care hours for local children and their families.
