We went ahead with a very appreciative Barnados. They have matched our school up with names and ages of needy children in OUR area. (Surnames are NOT given to us). We wanted to stay with our children giving a gift to another child. Barnados have been flexible and most helpful in our efforts to teach charity to our children.

There are still thousands of people sleeping rough in Ireland every night.

Can anyone out there recommend alternatives for charity - other than Operation Christmas Child/Samaritans Purse?

Our school would like to have some charitable donation for the children to learn about giving at Christmas. We´ve decided against OCC this year and would like to focus our efforts in Ireland.

We already have Barnados toy drive on our ideas list...

Thanks so much!
