Tweet the hashtag #underthetree

Would you like to help raise €20,000 for the National Children’s Hospital by posting one simple tweet?

SPAR has unveiled a Twitter Christmas Tree, which will be ‘powered’ by tweets using the #underthetree hashtag this festive season.

Each #underthetree tweet will light one of the tree’s 1,600 bulbs; once the tree has been completely lit, SPAR will make its generous donation to the National Children’s Hospital, Tallaght.

The festive initiative marks the launch of the retailer’s official charity partnership with the National Children’s Hospital. SPAR is aiming to raise €200,000 through further campaigns to cover essential facility upgrades and provide important equipment that the hospital badly needs.

SPAR’s Twitter Tree will be on display above SPAR Ranelagh from the 4th to 30th of December and is supported by Leinster Rugby’s Mike McCarthy.

If you can’t pop down to see it in person, you can also watch your tweets light up the giant Twitter tree here through a live camera feed which updates every minute.
