Name the most giving person in your life who deserves to win big this Christmas

Today we launched our Christmas Charity initiative in aid of St Vincent de Paul, and to mark this we want to know who is the most giving person in your life?

Maybe it's your mother, a lovely neighbour, or someone in your community that you think deserves a treat for all the nice things they've done for others.

You can nominate the most giving person in your life by visiting or to and in the spirit of giving we will send five lucky nominees a shopping voucher to spend on themselves.

Get nominating to make someone's Christmas even better!

To launch our campaign, we took to the streets of Cork and asked the public to name the most selfless people they know. Mammies got a lot of mentions, including from Dáithí Ó'Sé, who stopped to chat as he was passing by.

To coincide with our Christmas Charity initiative, we will donate 20c from every newspaper sold on Saturday, December 17 to SVP and publish a selection of readers’ messages.

"We are delighted to team up with St Vincent de Paul again this year, a charity who provide invaluable support to people in need," said Karen O’Donoghue, Marketing Manager, Irish Examiner.

"Our campaign aims to highlight and acknowledge the most ‘giving’ people in our lives, and we are looking forward to receiving the nominations our readers and followers share with us in the coming fortnight."

"We are delighted that the Irish Examiner is working with St Vincent de Paul again this year," said Gerry Garvey, South West Regional Co-ordinator, Society of St Vincent de Paul.

"The initiative will be of great benefit to families and individuals throughout Cork who otherwise might face a winter of fuel for books for school. The monies raised will be used to help these people through the coming winter months."
