Help someone in need

Donate nowI learned courtesy of Gavin's Blog that Gavin's cousin, Victor Connell, tragically suffered a serious spinal injury whilst playing for Longford RFC in October 2005. This spinal injury paralysed him largely from the neck down and leaves him requiring assistance for the rest of his life.

Many Irish bloggers have called on their readers to consider giving a helping hand to this man and I echo their sentiments 100 per cent. Victor's story has been reported on RTE here as well as the Irish Independent here.

Irish people are usually very good at giving help to those who need it and I understand that there were fundraisers at the Ireland match yesterday for Victor. Hopefully they will raise alot of money for him, but you can as well.

At this time of year, many people give up stuff for Lent in order to help improve their lives. Some people give up sweets, some people give up beer etc. Forget all that bullshit.

Go ahead and give up a couple of euros for this man because you will be doing so much more for him and for yourself. You could actually help change a life.

Go visit the Victor Connell Trust Fund Appeal and give what you can.

Thank you.
