Dear Principals, Teachers and School Secretary’s,

I though I would take this opportunity to say a huge thank you again from all the team at UNICEF Ireland for your support of our 1st national non uniform day world record breaking attempt last October. As you know the event was a huge success for us and we are truly grateful. And yes… we did brake the world record!

The donations from your school have gone far and wide helping us to continue to support vulnerable children worldwide supported by UNICEF programmes. An poignant example of such are the children of Haiti. This Wednesday 12th is will be the first anniversary of the devastating earthquake that rocked Haiti for only 35 seconds but became a defining moment in the country’s history.

I attach a document that may be of interest to you and perhaps bring to life for the students an example of what their donations have done for other children. Should your school wish to take part – UNICEF Ireland are holding a 1 minute silence on Wednesday 12th at 12pm to mark the anniversary of the event.

Should you wish to have further updates on the children of Haiti or indeed any other UNICEF programmes please do not hesitate to contact me.

Perhaps you will consider us again next year as we plan to make our October event even bigger and better next year!

Many thanks, El.
