Call for people in Dublin to Shop for a Smile this Summer

by Padraig Conlon

Gift card company One4all return this week with the annual Shop4Crumlin charity campaign for the 5th year.

Taking place from tomorrow Saturday July 6th until next Sunday week (14th) the campaign will raise money for the CMRF Giggle Fund, a fund dedicated to giving a giggle or spreading a smile to the little faces of patients at Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital, Crumlin.

Every day approximately 365 children attend Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital, Crumlin from counties all across Ireland, so its time to dig out your One4all Gift Cards and get ready to shop ‘til you drop for an incredible cause!

The Giggle Fund, created by CMRF Crumlin, the principle fundraising body for the children’s hospital, aims to make every one of those sick children smile with small celebrations such as pizza nights, pyjama parties and new toys.

These simple moments of joy can help make the day a little happier for the brave children battling illness at the hospital and are all made possible through the Giggle Fund and the donations they receive.

During Shop4Crumlin week, One4all will donate 50c to CMRF Crumlin for every transaction made using a One4all Gift Card in any of its 8,500 retail outlets nationwide or online – which means the more you swipe your One4all, the more you donate!

Additionally, Argos, Arnotts, Debenhams, Lifestyle Sports and Littlewoods have partnered with One4all and pledged to donate an extra 50c to CMRF Crumlin for all transactions made in their stores using a One4all Gift Card between the 6th and 14th of July, bringing the total donation to €1 every time a One4all Gift Card is spent.

Now in its fifth year, the Shop4Crumlin campaign has helped One4all to raise over €100,000 for sick children across the country.

This year, all money raised will again be donated to the hugely important Giggle Fund which allows patients to forget about their illness for a few hours and just enjoy being a child.

By simply spending your One4all Gift Cards this July, you can help brighten the days of the patients of Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital, Crumlin and give the gift of a much-needed smile, or even a giggle.
