Be a donor
I was at a luncheon today in the beautiful Mansion House, home of the Lord Mayor of Dublin, to mark the official launch of the Irish Kidney Association's Donor Awareness Week. A vital fundraising effort, Donor Week has long been a pivotal campaign in the IKA's annual calendar.
An Taniste, and Minister for Health, Mary Harney TD was on hand and delivered an inspiring speech to the assembled guests, who included broadcaster and patron of the association Miriam O'Callaghan, John Curran TD and Jim Morahan of The Examiner.
Donor week runs from the 2nd to the 9th of April and can be supported by the purchase of the Forget-Me-Not flower, key ring and badge.
