When a webpage for the Heart Angel was initially set up in October 2020, the goal was to raise €5,000 for Make A Wish Ireland and to do an act of kindness in Béibhinn’s name. Béibhinn’s story prompted people all over the world to carry out random acts of kindness in her name from NYPD in New York to nurses in Perth Australia and everywhere in between. Within two months €76,000 was raised for Make A Wish Ireland, and since then it has raised nearly €100,000 between monies raised for the Irish, English and American Make A Wish.
A huge thank you all our friends – old & new, families, companies and organisations who have been so generous in donating & fundraising for the Heart Angel. It’s so appreciated.
Since the Heart Angel was launched as an official charity of its own in May 2021, we have a number of exciting fundraisers coming soon, some of the details can be seen below.
Carrigaline Ladies Lunch 2022
This legendary annual event is held in Carrigaline, Co Cork every year. Béibhinn was born and raised in Carrigaline and has a huge community of family & friends in the area. Therefore it’s an honour that the Ladies Lunch 2022 will take place in aid of The Heart Angel. Thanks to everyone involved. It’s very much appreciated.
More details to follow closer to the event in 2022.
Maxol, Carrigaline Acts of Kindness Fundraiser
We would like to thank our ongoing supporter Maxol, Carrigaline and Maxol, Ballinrea, who raised €4,000 for “Make a Wish” on behalf of The Heart Angel in December 2020. They kindly held a second fundraiser on the 7th of July for one week to mark the launch of our new charity status. During this fundraiser the kind people of Carrigaline and Maxol customers near and far donated €1,200. This money is our first stepping stone to help us support local initiatives. We are extremely grateful for Maxol’s continued support.
