This December, we’re putting our money where our mouth is, by matching every donation that comes in via the GiveAway scheme, Euro for Euro.
That’s right! For every Euro you donate between now and midnight on 24thDecember, we’ll contribute the same amount to the Give Away fund, so we can help even more charities in 2019.
As usual, customers can opt to include a donation of €1, €2 or €5 to their order. The money, in turn, goes towards providing a hot takeaway meal for a person experiencing homelessness.
The scheme was originally set up in 2016, and over €4,000 has since been spent on 12 events, benefitting over 675 people. The giveaway works across the cities of Dublin, Cork, Limerick and Waterford, in partnership with a variety of charities, including St. Vincent De Paul, Dublin Simon, Hope in the Darkness and ICHH.
“We all see a takeaway meal as a treat but we often take it for granted, so the idea of the Christmas Give Away is to give those going through a tough time a chance to enjoy it as well,” says Marvin head honcho, James Galvin.
“We have been both delighted and humbled by the amazing generosity shown by our customers to date: in 2018, 1.3% of you opted to make a donation. We hope that our pledge to match every Euro will encourage even more to contribute and allow us to help more charities in 2019,” he adds.
