Around The World for The Irish Blue Cross!

Summer is usually a busy time for fundraising for The Irish Blue Cross, with our flagship “Bark in the Park” fundraising events. Unfortunately, much like last year, these events cannot take place. However, you can still get involved and raise much needed funds for thousands of sick and injured animals!

iDonate.ie have partnered with Charities Institute Ireland to launch a nationwide fundraiser that is taking place in June, in aid of Irish charities. It’s an exciting new virtual challenge that will will bring fundraisers across Ireland together, at a safe distance.

‘Around the World’ takes place on June 19 – 20th and the goal is to collectively travel the distance of the globe (42,000km) in 24 hours by running, walking, swimming, cycling, wagging, barking, …any movement counts and every little helps! The only requirement is that your chosen activity is in line with current government guidelines on exercise and social distancing. Participants will pledge their kms to their chosen cause on iDonate.ie and all donations received will go to The Irish Blue Cross.

We’re asking you to take part in an activity of your choice on June 19 – 20th and fundraise or donate to support The Irish Blue Cross via this link, or by filling in your details below – you can even nominate friend! The kms you pledge to The Irish Blue Cross will be counted towards the 42,000km ‘Around the World’ challenge target.
