How do I sign up?
Contact Claudine Kelly via email@example.com or call 01 878 3000. You’ll then become a part of the UNICEF Team and get a sponsorship pack, including:

You can make fundraising for UNICEF Ireland even easier by setting up your own personalised fundraising page on http://www.unicef.ie/My-UNICEF-76.aspx. The money raised by your supporters is transferred straight to UNICEF Ireland in real time and you will be able to keep track of how much sponsorship has come in.
If you can’t find your chosen event on our list contact us to let us know what you’re doing and we will send you everything you need for your fundraising.
Please remember, registering with UNICEF does not mean you are registered with the event organisers so please ensure you contact them.
Where will my funds go?
As we are voluntary funded, we really rely on as much support as possible from individuals and local communities. Our small team here in the UNICEF Ireland is strengthened by the on-going support of dedicated fundraisers, advocates, volunteers and partners across the country. With your support, we can continue to help children survive and thrive.
Five years ago 25,500 children died every day from preventable causes. Today that number is19,000. However, 7.6 million children are still not reaching their 5th birthday every year. Worse, they die from preventable causes, such as drinking dirty water, not having shelter at night or not getting access to the most basic medical care: everything we now take for granted here in Ireland. We believe that number should be Zero and by working with us you can help us move closer to achieving this goal. See the work that UNICEF is doing right now
