Target and beyond....We are incredibly grateful to everyone who was donated, sponsored, attended events and helped us reach our target. A number of events from non uniform days and a successful concert with Mundy, James OR and Pete Courtney have taken place.
Getting there ...
We're having a local coffee morning with some great raffle prizes on 16th Oct in our local community centre. And on 27th November the wonderful Mundy is coming to Cork to play a gig for us. Thanks as always for everyone's support.
We have some exciting events in the pipeline, and will share more when finalised.
Why you might ask…
Thank you for supporting me on my AADI Sled Dog Expedition. I'm delighted to be taking part in this fundraiser to help raise vital funds for AADI. Let us tell you about our story…
In July 2021 the AADI reopened the waiting list and allocated 30 Autism Assistance Dogs to 30 families. We were one of the lucky ones and we have been able to secure a dog for our son.
He is an incredible 7 year old, who loves art, swimming, kayaking and more recently sailing. He is fun, happy and super smart. However, our kid is a flight risk, and lacks a sense of danger.
The primary role of an assistance dog is to prevent a child from running into danger when they are outside the house.
For every family like ours who were successful in getting an assistance dog, there were 6 disappointed families, who were not so lucky. It costs €22,000 and takes 2 years to train and place an assistance dog. They do not charge families for these life changing dogs. The charity is entirely supported by fundraising and donations. Please donate what you can and support us and this wonderful charity.
Thank you! 🙏
