Three's Christmas ad with Barnardos contains the message we all need to hear
The Christmas adverts just keep getting better and better this year, and Three's campaign with Barnardos is no exception.
We all remember the story of the little girl who asked for a cloud for Christmas last year, and this year's campaign opens a new chapter in their story.
While Anna and her cloud are happy together for months, when summer comes the cloud begins to act strangely. When Anna realises that her cloud is sad and there's nothing she can do to help, she makes the tough decision to bring it back to the mountains, showing that sometimes a perfect surprise isn't always the one you get, it's the one you give.
The touching story has been developed into a children's book, The Girl and the Cloud, with all proceeds from the book going to Barnardos to support the life transforming services they provide for thousands of children and families in Ireland.
The book is available now for €8.99 in 3Stores, Eason stores nationwide and all Barnardos stores, making a perfect stocking stuffer.
