Today some friends and I signed up to partake in the Tour de Picnic 2013 with http://www.give2go.ie The cycle takes place on Friday August 30 beginning in Dublin with Electric Picnic in Stradbally co.Laois the final destination. As I had a ticket for the Picnic already, I couldn’t see a better way of beginning the weekend than by raising much needed funds on behalf of two great causes.
The 2013 beneficiaries of the cycle are LauraLynn House and Thank You Crumlin, Love Mia. Both of these are very worthy beneficiaries you must agree and will benefit hugely from the money raised.
LauraLynn House opened in September 2011 and supports children with life-limiting conditions and is Ireland’s only childrens hospice. Thank You Crumlin, Love Mia is a charity set up by 12 year old Mia Keaveney to raise funds for a new orthopaedic unit in Crumlin Hospital where she is a patient.
Two very very worthy causes to raise both awareness and funds for I think you will agree.
You will find much more information on both below:
As regards fundraising, I simply want to raise as much as possible. I’m well aware of the financial position many people find themselves in currently and know that raising money is difficult right now. However, these are two very worthy causes and any donation, no matter how large or small, will be well received and put to great use. I would appeal to your altruistic sense and know that in giving to these causes, you are helping to make life easier for some very ill children and their families. I have no connection with either charity apart from wanting to raise money on their behalf and help the children’s lives in any way I can.
So please do donate. Any amount is more than nothing and will help some really deserving children and their families.

Finally,thanks for reading. Just remember, your hard-earned money you donate will make a real difference to the lives of a sick child and their family in Ireland somewhere.
What a nice way to help eh……..
