How to Help

18,000 children face significant social and emotional challenges everyday because of long-term illness or disability.

On top of the physical limitations of their conditions, they experience more bullying, have fewer close friends and are much more likely to report feeling isolated and unhappy in life.

Through the kindness of supporters like you, our creative projects provide much-needed distraction and relief from the loneliness and sadness caused by illness.

By letting their creativity shine, children & young people who take part:

  • Connected to and supported by others going through similar life experiences
  • Better able to express and share their experiences among a trusting community of peers
  • Empowered to take back control, building self-confidence & self-esteem

YOU can help us bring the powers of creativity to more children across Ireland. Click below to find out how you get involved, or see our fundraising brochure here.
