Jack & Jill Founder Celebrates his Milestone Birthday with a Fundraiser
On June 21st, Jack & Jill Founder Jonathan Irwin celebrates his 80th Birthday and as part of the celebrations, is seeking help to raise funds for the Jack and Jill Children's Foundation. As Jonathan explains: "For me, the best birthday present would be to help raise lots of funds for Jack and Jill Children's Foundation to help the charity to do what it does best. I am so proud to see the charity extend its age range from five to six years, a hugely positive development which is so welcomed by families and made possible by the continued generosity of people towards Jack & Jill."
Jonathan is urging people to donate €18 for a one-hour “Gift of Time” to help fund specialist home nursing care for 385 children with life-limiting conditions supported by Jack & Jill around the country. In response, The Jack & Jill Foundation have set up a Facebook Fundraiser to mark the special day to share a birthday message and a donation to help the 385 Jack & Jill families nationwide.
