The Irish Deaf Society Christmas Giving Campaign

We are such a small charity doing life-changing work and every Christmas Card sold, Raffle Ticket entered and donation made, makes a huge difference. Our work over the last 18 months has helped to ensure Deaf people have critical health information during the pandemic and access to adult education as we continue our campaign for equality and rights. You can play your part by choosing one of the support options below.
