has raised a fantastic €37,526 through its most recent charity month initiative. The proceeds from the money raised during the month of February will go to the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, Suicide or Survive and RehabCare Waterford Resource Centre.
For the month of February, three charities were chosen by three staff members at DoneDeal and 10% of the cost of placing a paid ad on DoneDeal goes directly to the designated charities.
Each charity received €12,508 from DoneDeal to invest in important projects over the coming months.
St. Vincent de Paul, works to alleviate the effects of poverty on individuals and families. The charity works primarily through person-to-person contact by a unique system of family visitation, seeking to achieve social justice and equal opportunity for all citizens. The donation from DoneDeal will help St. Vincent de Paul to provide basics like food, fuel and education costs to families and individuals in local communities across Ireland.
Liam Casey, East Regional President at the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, said: “We would like to express a sincere and heartfelt thank you to the staff of DoneDeal for choosing the Society of St. Vincent de Paul to benefit during this charity month. We only make one appeal to the public for donations each year at Christmas, but the reality is that the people we support need help throughout the whole year so this donation is greatly appreciated.”
