One of the primary ways that Tír na nÓg can carry out its mission is through the assistance of generous supporters who raise money on the children’s behalf. Fundraising enables us to purchase the vital resources needed for the children and also raises awareness of the plight of Tanzanian orphans and abandoned children. Examples of successful fundraisers by Tír na nÓg supporters held in the past include:
Organizing a fundraising trek on Mt. Kilimanjaro with a visit to Tír na nÓg to meet the children, bake sale/coffee morning, benefit concert, quiz night, cycle or marathon, skydive, pre-loved clothes sale, paint n sip night, shave or dye night, etc.
A recent fundraiser by an 8-year-old girl involved getting sponsors for cutting her beautiful long hair. Her efforts helped two charities, Tír na nÓg who received the money she raised and her hair were donated to the Rapunzel Foundation.
Another great way to raise funds and create more awareness of Tír na nÓg home is by encouraging friends and family to make donations to Tír na nÓg in lieu of birthday or anniversary gifts.
