Online Fundraising for Clubs, Schools and Causes
St James Primary School


Goal : €5000
From 2 fantastic supporters

I hope you are as well as can be expected in this strange phase of our lives. As we all examine each other at microscope level 24/7 am sure you are as grateful as I am that, most of the time, you like (even love) those who you are quarantined with and are using some of this time to connect on levels, experimenting in the kitchen, yoga class or movie night.

At St James Primary School in Basin lane, school closure and lockdown is another matter. Many of these children depend on school as that nurturing safe place for them. Now they are at home where life is less stable, many do not have the haven we have. St James teachers are doing their best to be in touch through technology and we are trying to help using other mechanisms to give the children moments of childhood, abilities to escape or retreat from fraught and precarious surroundings. 

You may know I have been involved for a number of years with the Early Focus Project at St James. through Early focus children respond to kindness, creativity and rebuild trust which for many complex reasons has broken down in their home life. Kits for Kids is a new initiative to help them find some of this comfort at home even in challenges situations.

40 Euros will provide a pop up tent for kids to escape to

100 euros will provide a weighted blanket which helps with anxiety

30 euros will provide a creativity kit (Buddha board, cookie in a mug kit)

I know many of us have insecure work states and may not be able to step up right now but any of you who can help, your donation will go a long way to giving these children a little happiness and a lot of hope for brighter days. Please pass this onto friends as you see fit - or JOIN as part of my team 

With love and gratitude

    I cannot imagine the lives of these kids and am so happy to show them encouragement and how to trust and love where they have been let down before
