Fundraiser for Macmillan Cancer Support
In October 2016, Elisa and I started a fundraiser for Macmillan Cancer Support and set our goal at £10,000. The support we received and the feel-good factor it gave us is something I’ll always cherish.
But several months passed and we were stuck on £5,000, our target seeming unreachable. Then on January 16th last, with the publication of my first
Irish Times article, the fund jumped to more than £7,000. Suddenly, we were optimistic. Raising money for charity was new to us both and we learned to become more patient. On June 28th last, one day after my second article appeared, we reached £10,489.51.
Special thanks to the anonymous Irish Times reader who donated £1,000 with the intention of getting us over the line. We don’t know who you are, but appreciate your donation.
