Birthday Parties are just the best ! For a while we wouldn’t be able to celebrate them the way we usually do, but there’s nothing stopping us trying to still make them special.

Gifting your birthday to One in Four has makes a big difference to our work but it also gives your friends and family a way to mark your big day that really ads meaning.

Even before we started Social distancing Facebook Fundraisers had become a really valuable source of funding for One in Four.

Two weeks before your birthday you will get a notification on your Facebook Account to ask you to start a fundraiser for your birthday. If you decide to try it there are a few simple steps to take to set this up:

  1. You can select “One in Four Ireland “ from the drop-down of charities
  2. The amount of money you want to raise.
  3. The date you want your fundraiser to end.
  4. A title and description of your fundraiser.
  5.  Facebook will do the rest sending a notification to all your friends that instead of presents this year you would like them to donate to One in Four. 

There is also the option at any time of the year to use Facebook to ask friends and family to donate towards a challenge or event you decide to do. Any support you need just email us and we can help you with this or other ways to support our work.

You can also set up a Fundraising page on our website.
