As mentioned last month, The international Walsh Whiskey Community has successfully raised funds to support 1,000 nursing hours, in just over a month, for the 插口 & 吉尔儿童基金会 in support of seriously ill children under 5 years old and their families. To raise the money, 伯纳德 & 罗斯玛丽·沃尔什（Rosemary Walsh）, founders of Walsh Whiskey (作家之泪 & 爱尔兰人), set up a raffle and donated their personal collection of all 9 vintages of 作家的眼泪复古酒桶的力量, super-premium whiskey produced since 2011. When bottled later this year, 该 2020 vintage will be added to the prize which was won by Liam Boland from Dingle in the draw broadcast on Facebook Live last night.
Donations were made by people buying raffle tickets on Eventbrite from countries across the world, including Australia and the US. To ensure 100% of all donations made went directly to Jack and Jill Children’s Foundation, Walsh Whiskey have covered all Eventbrite fees to reach the target of €16,000 for 1,000 hours of nursing care.
COVID_19大流行病给许多慈善机构造成了严重的财务麻烦, 包括著名的 插口 & 吉尔基金会. The Foundation provides specialised nursing care for very young children with highly complex medical and life-threatening conditions, for whom life is uncertain and every day is a challenge.
Thanking everyone who took part, 伯纳德·沃尔什 说过:
“Rosemary and I are very grateful to everyone in the wider Walsh Whiskey community that supported these children and their families. The raffle is now concluded, but people who missed it can still donate directly to 该 插口 & Jill Foundation at www.jackandjill.ie/how-you-can-help/donate.”
代表发表评论 插口 & 吉尔基金会, 卡梅尔·道尔（Carmel Doyle）, CEO 说过:
“We want to thank Bernard & Rosemary and the Walsh Whiskey team for making this wonderful raffle happen and we are so very grateful to every single person who bought a ticket. Covid19 has had a devastating impact on our fundraising calendar and we want to thank everyone for answering our SOS appeal by supporting Jack & Jill. The €16,000 raised will fund a whopping 1,000 hours of home nursing care for the 340 extra special children under our wing, giving their families a break from the non-stop role of caring. 所以, from our community to yours thank you so very much.”
