Topaz has announced children’s charity the Jack & Jill Foundation as its newest brand partner in a three-year deal that will raise €400,000 in funds towards its work.
The partnership has been launched along with new Topaz fundraising initiative, ‘Small Change For Big Change’, which calls on Topaz and Re.Store customers to donate their unwanted, and soon-to-be-out of circulation, 1 and 2 cent coins.
All donations will go to the Jack & Jill Foundation, with every €16 raised paying for one hour of home-nursing for families of children up to the age of four suffering from severe intellectual and physical developmental delay as a result of brain damage.
The charity aims to fund over 25,000 hours of nursing hours with the contributions coming from Topaz staff and customers.
CEO of the Jack & Jill Foundation, Jonathan Irwin, welcomed the partnership, saying; “This fundraising drive by Topaz will make such a huge difference, both financially and socially, to the families we support.
“Financially via that phenomenal €400,000 target which will fund a whopping 25,000 home nursing hours and, socially through that real sense of ‘comradery’ this partnership brings to families.”
Margaret Barron, Marketing Director of Topaz commented, “The work of the Jack & Jill Foundation provides invaluable support to those who are in need of a helping hand.
“We’re delighted to extend our support to this very worthy cause which we believe will change many lives for the better.”
