Known as Lisa’s Lust List amongst her online following, Lisa McGowan has presented an extraordinary donation of €200,000 to support the exceptional efforts of LauraLynn Children’s Hospice.
The generous contribution, raised collectively with her online community, was formally handed over at the hospice’s location in Leopardstown.
LauraLynn, a leading organisation dedicated to supporting children with life-limiting conditions and their families, expressed their gratitude for Lisa’s efforts and generous contribution towards making a positive impact on the lives of those facing challenging circumstances.
Lisa online community united to contribute to the significant funds raised through an exciting online raffle and also by attending the Lisa & Co’s Christmas Fair at The Sheraton Hotel in Athlone last December, which featured an impressive line-up of top-tier Irish and international brands to create a one-of-a-kind shopping experience, mixing luxury, laughter and giving back. Both events, whether experienced virtually or in person, served as platforms for supporters not only to engage with thrilling opportunities to win prizes but also to make impactful contributions to LauraLynn.
I am profoundly grateful for the opportunity to contribute to the incredible work of LauraLynn. As I hand over this donation of €200,000, my heart is filled with joy knowing that together, we are making a meaningful difference in the lives of those facing challenging times. The cheque is not just a sum of money; it represents compassion, support, and the collective effort to bring comfort and care to those in need. Let this act inspire a ripple of kindness, reminding us all that even a small gesture can make a big impact on someone’s journey,” said Lisa McGowan.
Cathy White, Community Fundraising Executive at LauraLynn, said “The generosity shown by Lisa and her followers will make an incredible impact to the lives of children with life-limiting conditions and their families who LauraLynn support across Ireland. We would like to thank Lisa and her followers. We are so honoured to be chosen as Lisa’s charity of choice for this fundraiser.
Lisa’s commitment to charitable causes and her ability to mobilise her online community for a noble cause have set a new standard, exemplifying the profound impact that collective generosity can have on making a positive difference in the lives of those in need.
