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.
Mother’s Day 2020
Congratulations to our Mothers Day Competition winners Oorla Rafter and Sharon Bolger.
LOVE BLAST 2020 Thank you
“I want to thank you Helen and all the people who contributed to the wonderful surprise. It gave me such a lift and faith that there are good people out there, I had a few tears reading some of the cards but on the whole they made me smile, words will never express how much this gesture meant, I am very grateful to have received this most wonderful treat again thank you all so much.
Much love from me to you all.xx”
Michelle was presented with 101 Valentines cards this year with a fiver and a message of hope in each..she was an incredible deserving recipient.
