The Irish Examiner is asking as many people as possible to ho ho hold a pose this Christmas and take a "selfie" in aid of St Vincent de Paul.
For every selfie received, the Irish Examiner will donate €1 to SVP — up to a maximum of €10,000.
Christmas selfies can be shared until December 23. We will publish as many selfies as we can on irishexaminer.com, on our various social media accounts, and in print in our Christmas Eve edition.
Karen O’Donoghue, marketing manager, Irish Examiner said: “We are delighted to support St Vincent de Paul as part of our Christmas charity initiative, and believe #selfie4svp is a great way for everyone to show their support to an extremely worthwhile campaign.
“It gets people involved and creates awareness of SVP in a fun and festive way. SVP provides invaluable care, emotional and financial support to people living in poverty, a cause that holds strong in people’s hearts, making it a charity we want to get behind.”
Linda O’Connell, SVP national online and media coordinator said: “We are delighted that the Irish Examiner has chosen St Vincent de Paul to benefit from this exciting and novel Christmas charity initiative. It is vital to supporting the thousands of people in need throughout the country.”
