PASS IT ON is not a charity it is a social initiative that runs alongside my business.

It is a community of people that care about other people when they are down on their luck or struggling through their personal situations. From passing on items of furniture, TVs etc.. to food Hampers PASS IT ON is involved in a lot of community projects. This year we placed 3 students in Scholarships and last year through care packs for the Homeless, Womens refuges parcels and Santa toys for 80 children in refuge we were able to help over 540 people… We had a princess day for a young lady suffering with long term illness this year and on Valentines day we run LOVE BLAST where 101 people buy a Valentine card for a person in touble, they write a lovely message on it and stick a fiver in the envelope.. this can be an huge boost to someone who thinks that they dont matter.

Operation Snowball 2018

Our big event is OPERATION SNOWBALL.. This is where we are given the use of a local business premises (SEDGWICK) in Sandymount and everyone who has pledged a SNOWBALL drops it off and meets Santa and all his helpers who make sure that all the parcels are delivered to the various recipients that day. It is a magical experience to see so many people turn up to help those less fortunate.

If you would like to be involved you can choose from any of these SNOWBALLS and pledge it for Dec 16th. You can drop it off between 10am and 1pm and have a real Christmas feel good experience.

People now call me all year around if they have something that they want to donate. I have set this up as I now have a good idea where most stuff is needed.

MY PROMISE is to try and direct people or pass on the items myself to the places that will benefit most.

I am so grateful to the people who donate as I know what it means to the people on the other end!

Please contact me for questions or donations.

THANK YOU ALL FOR SUPPORTING ME ON ALL THESE PROJECTS.
