Kids asked to say a special thanks to Teachers this Christmas

Parents and kids in Dublin are being asked to buy a very special present for thei Wp Ez Squeezy WordPress Plugin r teacher this Christmas – a helping hand to those most in need.

Crosscare helps over 70,000 people in Dublin every year – including the homeless, young children in care, and people needing help to just put food on the table.

It’s estimated that families could spend over a quarter of a million euro in gifts for teachers this Christmas – a lot of which end up in the bottom of the wardrobe or in the charity shop.

This year – Crosscare are inviting parents to log on to their website – make a donation that will help the most  needy in Dublin at this very difficult time – and in return kids can print off a specially designed “Thank You Teacher” certificate to show their teacher their appreciation.

Parents can log on from today at www.crosscare.ie and download this extra special gift for teachers.

This unique gift was launched this afternoon (Wednesday 3pm) at the Crosscare Gifts for Good Charity shop in Dublin with the Boys from the Palestrina Choir (who are appearing the National Concert Hall on December 2nd)

  • More information on the teachers card and where any money raised will be spent from Michael Mc Donagh, Crosscare, 087 6710442
  • Tickets for ‘Christmas with the Palestrina’ at www.nch.ie
