KMK Metals Recycling took part in the annual GOAL jersey day on Friday 13th October, raising €300 for the Irish international humanitarian aid agency.
This year, GOAL is celebrating 35 years of schools of its flagship fundraising campaign. All funds raised will go towards supporting GOAL’s lifesaving work across the world, which currently includes projects in 13 countries across Africa, the Middle East, Latin America, and Ukraine.
Max Kyck, General Manager of KMK Metals Recycling, commented: “Now, more than ever we can clearly see the importance of fundraising for aid agencies such as GOAL. The lifesaving work carried out by aid workers on the ground is only possible if we all support fundraising efforts like GOAL jersey day.”
Speaking about this fun national fundraising campaign, Eamon Sharkey, GOAL’s Director of Fundraising and Communications, said, ‘Jersey Day’s appeal lies in its simplicity – all you need to do is wear your favourite jersey and donate to GOAL’s humanitarian aid work. The fundraiser also offers participants, especially in a post-pandemic world, an ideal opportunity for reconnection, fostering a sense of camaraderie while supporting GOAL’s mission to help some of the world’s most vulnerable communities move from extreme crisis to resilience, where everyone has equal rights and opportunities.’
