Jack and Jill Children's Foundation Christmas Appeal Supporting Sick Children Across Ireland

The Jack and Jill Children’s Foundation hopes to raise €1 million through its Christmas Appeal to support children with highly complex and life-limiting medical conditions to stay at home, in their community, where they belong.


This nationwide Irish charity funds and provides vital in-home nursing care and respite support for over 400 children with severe to profound neurodevelopmental delay, up to the age of 6. They also provide end-of-life care for all children up to the age of 6, irrespective of diagnosis, and have supported over 2,800 families since it was founded by Jonathan Irwin and Mary Ann O’Brien 25 years ago.


This Christmas, your business can give the gift of time to families cared for by Jack and Jill, with a Christmas donation or gift purchase translating into specialist home nursing care hours for local children and their families.
