Bluebird Care is Happy!

Happy Giving  to our Charity Partners

We wanted to share to share some images with you from our various fundraising events for charity.  CSR is a big part of our corporate strategy and giving back to communities and organisations that support people living independently.

Each year we donate 20% of our marketing budget to CSR and so we made a video to show you just a sample of what we do. If this video makes you happy, please share it!

Some of the charities we work with include Active Retirement Ireland, Age Action, Special Olympics Ireland, Blood Bike West and Wheelchairtaxi.ie.

The Special Olympics World Games were hosted in Ireland 10 years ago. To mark the occasion Bluebird Care has launched a nationwide fundraising campaign which will see them challenge their Directors, Managers and staff to do ‘Summit for the Weekend’ all in aid of Special Olympics Ireland.

“18 offices. 18 challenges. One Target. Because no challenge is insurmountable when it comes to the Special Olympics Ireland athletes,” says Eddie O’Toole, Operations Director with Bluebird Care.

Bluebird Care Dublin South East & Wicklow will be represented by Dan Fisher in an adventure race on Saturday September 14th. Fisher will take on the iconic Sugar Loaf Mountain, kayak on the spectacular Vartry Lakes, cycle over the Sally Gapand and run above the Powerscourt Waterfall. Sponsor Dan now at http://fundraising.specialolympics.ie/fundraisingpage.aspx?uid=1240&eid=675. All funds raised will go to Special Olympics Ireland.
