The Hope Foundation Raffle
In June/July 2021, at the tail end of our last Level 5 lockdown, we ran a raffle to raise money for the Hope Foundation and their much needed work in India. Thanks to our brilliant Makers and the support of our kind customers, we raised €1200 for this great cause. We covered the admin costs so 100% of the money went to support this great work.
The Hope Foundation is a registered charity that has worked for many years in Kolkata, India (formerly Calcutta) on projects working to provide protection, health, education and economic development to and with the poorest in society, especially children. We had all seen the recent terrible images from India with the COVID pandemic. The Hope Foundation has responded to this emergency by upscaling their hospital with its own COVID wards and providing food and aid to people who must stay home due to the lockdown with little, if no, government supports. This is in addition to their 'normal' project work which is still ongoing, in very tough conditions (including Cyclone Yaas which has caused major damage and flooding in West Bengal this week).
Many of us in Ireland (and especially Cork where their head office is based) are familiar with their work and we wanted to do something to help. This raffle will go directly towards their much needed work.
This raffle is authorised under permit ClonDOLic195063\ZI and with the permission of The Hope Foundation.
