On Friday the 26th of November we want YOU to #GetYourStripeOn and help children affected by critical and life limiting conditions.

We are asking schools, offices, and communities to join together and join our Stripy Jumper Day to help those who need it most! We have seen an unfortunate rise in the need for our service in recent years and need your support in helping as many children and families as possible.

It’s simple! This is a fun and easy way in which you can raise funds for BUMBLEance. In the office, turn a casual Friday into a Stripy Jumper Day for BUMBLEance instead! Why not #GetYourStripeOn at your school as an alternative for non-uniform day? On the 26th, hang out with your friends, your community group, family – whoever! – in stripes just like our BUMBLEance Bee! Host a coffee morning, cake sale, stripy walk or run! Interested in setting a target? €400 will cover the cost of an Angel Trip, which means that you will be helping BUMBLEance bring a terminally ill child home one last time before they pass.


How to get Involved?

(1) Register your school, office or community here

(2) Set up your online fundraiser here using iDonate or donate to our fundraiser here

(3) Any questions? Email aislinn@saoirsefoundation.com 

(4) Have fun! Get everyone involved, take a group selfie and tag us using #GetYourStripeOn – we’re buzzed to see your Stripy Selfies!



Why organise a Stripy Jumper Day?

By organising and hosting a fundraiser you will be raising vital, much-needed funds for children with critical and life limiting conditions. Throughout the pandemic our service was still running however, all our main events & traditional fundraisers were cancelled, so now we need your help more than ever. Your support and fundraising will play an integral role in our ability to continue to support hundreds of children and their families get to their hospital appointments and travel to respite centres for their treatments.

So this year, put a smile on the faces of those around you by wearing your favourite Stripy Jumper.

If you are a corporate that would like to take part please email aislinn@saoirsefoundation.com and fill out the registration form.

So get excited and #GetYourStripeOn for Friday the 26th of November. If that date wont work? No worries, you can plan your Stripy Jumper Day for any time of the year!


How will my donations help?

All funds raised will go directly to ensuring our service helps as many children as possible. It will help us reach more children living with critical and life limiting conditions around Ireland, to ensure they get to all hospital appointments, surgeries, treatments, etc. stress and cost free. The money you have raised will keep the BUMBLEance wheels turning, and our entertainment systems will distract a child from what they are on their way to or from, allowing them to just be a kid for the time they are on BUMBLEance.

To give some context:

(1)An average one-way BUMBLEance journey is 180km, which costs BUMBLEance approximately €200.

(2)An Angel Trip, bring a terminally ill child home one last time before they pass, is approximately €400

When fundraising for Stripy Jumper Day, why not make one of these your target and help us deliver smiles!
