Let Your Lights Shine

Support Shine this Christmas and you could win a Cosmetics & Wine Hamper:

Our fundraising campaign is a little different for Christmas 2020 because we are asking people to show their support for the Shine Centre by text this year. Just text the word “SHINE” to 50300 and donate €4 to support the programmes and services we provide for our children and families. When you donate you will be in with a chance to win a wonderful Christmas Hamper that is packed with beautiful perfumes, make up, wine and chocolates. So please follow the steps below and help us to help our children to reach their full potential by donating just €4.

Here is how it works: 

  1. Text the word “SHINE” to 50300 to donate €4

  2. Post the comment “Let your lights Shine”on our Facebook page and you will automatically be entered in our raffle for the hamper.

  3. Please feel free to add a picture of your Christmas lights to help us to brighten the future for our children and families.

  4. Please share the page with your friends and family.

  5. Then keep an eye on our Facebook page on the 21st December for the winner.
