Are you working on Monday the 29th of February?
You probably are.
Yes, it's a Leap Year...but Februray 29th is probably going to be a normal day for you and me. If you get paid monthly, I'm sorry to tell you that you're going to be doing an extra days work this year for no extra pay!
That's the bad news...but here's the good news...
We're asking companies and employers to give this Gift Of A Day back to help more victims of abuse.
By donating the extra value, income or savings that a company gains from this day to One In Four, they'll be using this February 29th to make a huge difference. Or by donating the time back to you...their staff...you can help us raise more through one of our events!
Each company will be providing more therapy sessions, more courtroom visits, more advice, more support...Everything we do.
It'll allow us to meet more women, men and families. And to get more survivors off our waiting list.
Please ask your employer or any company you deal with if they'd like to give the Gift Of A Day.
Please send this on to anyone you know that might be interested.
- And please help us making some noise on February 29th with #TheGiftOfADay.
In return we'll give them One Day at One In Four.
Let's make sure February 29th isn't a waste of a day :-)
If you'd like to give The Gift Of A Day then please contact Simon at email@example.com or (01) 662 4070.
You might remember that last year we asked our supporters to drop in nomination forms to their local Tesco. Every six weeks, each Tesco store donates up to €1,000 to charities like us.
So far NINE of your local Tescos have chosen us as their charity!
It's only because of individuals like you, who take the the time to nominate us or vote for us, that we're able to get these donations from Tesco. Because of you we can support more men and women that experienced abuse as kids.
That's why we're dedicating a day to you.
Now...let's keep going...
There's nothing to stop us being nominated again in the same Tesco, and there still plenty of stores that have never heard of us!
You can nominate One In Four to benefit from these donations by simply dropping in one of these forms to your local Tesco.
Our contact details are already there - you just need to fill in the bit about what we do for the community, from your point of view.
Something like: "One In Four helps people who have experienced sexual abuse as a child. Through therapy and advocacy they work to break the cycle of abuse. One In Four are fundraising to reduce their waiting list and see more men, women and families."
You can drop in as many forms as you like to as many Tesco stores as you like.
Thank you so much!
Cash Collections & Bucket Shaking
It can take some time to source a location and permit close to you. We count on volunteers to help us find these locations and then spend time outside collecting cash from the general public.
Fundraising & Events
We count on fundraising to deliver many of our services. If you are willing to organise a coffee morning, book club, or just about anything, then we would love to hear about it.
Website & On-Line
If you have any knowledge of website development or Google Analytics we are always looking to improve our site.
Postmen & Postwomen
We often look for volunteers to deliver flyers and mailings. If you like walking and being outside then this might be suitable for you.
We communicate with a lot of people in a lot of different ways. Do you want to help us create graphics and images that people will notice?
Sometimes we have short videos, such as interviews, that need to be put together for sharing on-line. If you have experience in video editing this might suit you.
If you are comfortable on the phone and like talking to people you may wish to help us reach out to businesses and individuals. We’ll train you up and help you along the way.
Based in Holles Street, Dublin 2, we often require help with general admin duties around the office. This might include stuffing envelopes, scanning, filing, or computer-based tasks.
