We launched our 'GIVE A HAND' donation project back in April in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. 5 months later and we've been overwhelmed by the positive response this project has received. Here's a little update...
HOW THE DONATION PROJECT WORKS:
To recap on how the project works, for every bottle of hand sanitiser we sell, we donate an additional 50% to healthcare providers. So to make it simple, if you buy a 50ml bottle we will donate 25ml, if you buy 500ml we will donate 250ml. So you can keep you and your family safe as well as giving back!
WHY WE STARTED THE PROJECT:
We started the project to support our local healthcare workers in the midst of the pandemic. Hand sanitiser was in short supply and we had everything we needed in our manufacturing facility to quickly adapt and manufacture high-quality, full approved hand sanitiser that is also gentle on the hands.
This has been the most fun part of the project! Getting out and meeting (at a distance) the incredible front line workers who helped look after us over the past few months and spread a little Nunaïa love has been heart-warming and has brought real joy to us at Nunaïa HQ.
We have distributed sanitiser donations to the following organisations which are both local to our headquarters in Tipperary and several larger hospitals including:
- Connolly Hospital Intensive Care & High Dependency Units, Dublin
- St Vincent's Hospital Cystic Fibrosis Unit, Dublin
- Portumna Retirement Village, Portumna
- Bushy Park Nursing Home, Borrisokane
- Nenagh Manor Nursing Home, Nenagh
- Ealga Lodge Nursing Home, Shinrone, Birr
Staff at Portumna Retirement Village receive their sanitiser.
We are continuing to run the GIVE A HAND project so you can still support our local healthcare workers over the coming months.
None of this would have been possible without all of your incredible support, so a huge thank you to each and everyone of you who championed this initiative and have been helping us support our local healthcare workers.
Sending so much gratitude,
Nicola & The Nunaïa Team xx
