Charities seek donation on Arthur's Day
AN ONLINE charity drive has been launched to coincide with today's Arthur's Day events.
The Donate a Drink campaign wants people to pledge a fiver – the price of a drink.
Fundraising efforts are being promoted using Facebook and Twitter, with donors encouraged to make pledges on a mycharity.ie webpage.
The charities listed as the beneficiaries are the Irish Cancer Society, the Make a Wish Foundation, the Umbrella Foundation, which helps impoverished children in Nepal, and Laura Lynn House, the Irish children's hospice.
The organiser writes: "When you donate, please type 'To Arthur'. I'm sure Arthur Guinness would be delighted to know that charity has benefited from his celebrations."
