shop for good


Indulging in a spot of shopping is one of the nicest treats you can give yourself, and now you can actually help others with your sartorial splurging. 

From Friday April 28 to Monday, May 1, Dundrum Town Centre will be playing host to a Shop for Good charity fundraising initiative for the fourth year running.

Aiming to raise funds and awareness for the charity Pieta House, Dundrum Town Centre has created a four day shopping event in the behemoth mall.

The way it works is that customers are asked to purchase Shop for Good coupons for €1.00 from pop-up booths around the centre.

100 per cent of the proceeds made from the sale of the coupons will go to Pieta House, and customers can use the coupons to avail of fantastic discounts across a huge range of stores and restaurants in Dundrum Town Centre. 

'We are delighted that Pieta House is the nominated charity for the Dundrum Town Centre Shop For Good initiative,' said Brian Higgins, Pieta House CEO.

'We are so grateful for such initiatives because they serve to highlight the work that we’re doing at Pieta House.'

'It’s because of the generosity of people across Ireland that we are able to keep our services free of charge and are so happy to say that more than 29,000 people have accessed them since the day we opened 11 years ago.'

Pieta House is a free crisis centre offering counselling, therapy and support to individuals suffering with suicide thoughts and self-harm.

They also support individuals and families who have been bereaved by suicide.

This initiative is going to support this extremely worthy cause, so get shopping nd know that every coupon used is helping those in need of mental health support. 



If you were looking for an excuse to hit the shops next weekend, we have found just the thing.

Dumdrum Town Centre launched their Shop for Good initiative earlier this week, a three day charity event running in the centre from Friday 24th – Saturday 26th April in association with Console.

To take part, all you have to do is purchase a €1 Shop for Good coupon from one of the many pop-up kiosks in the centre across the three days. The coupon can then be used to avail of some seriously tempting discounts in shops all over the centre.

A full list of stores and restaurants participating can be found at the kiosks or on www.dundrum.ie.

The best part? All the money raised from the sale of the coupons will go directly to Console, a nationwide professional suicide prevention and bereavement charity.

The Shop for Good initiative was launched last year for the first time with resounding success, and this year model Nadia Forde, Fair City actor George McMahon, TV presenter Miriam O'Callaghan and boyband Hometown were all on hand to help kick things off, along with Console CEO and founder Paul Kelly.

"This exciting fundraising effort will raise much-needed funds to help Console in our efforts to reduce the high levels of suicide in Ireland and to continue providing counselling and support for people in crisis on our 24 hour helplines," said Paul.

A shopping spree for a good cause? Count us in.
