Simon Delaney with a Gold HeartVariety’s Gold Heart Day is observed around the world by individuals, companies, organisations that support our work on behalf of children who have special needs. As part of this fund raising campaign, Variety – the Children’s Charity of Ireland encourages you to “wear your heart on your sleeve” – not only on February 14th, but all year round!

The Gold Heart campaign is one of Variety’s most recognized and successful global fundraising initiatives. Every year sees the launch of a new Gold Heart design, which makes each Gold Heart a collectors item! All year round, we sell gold hearts and we are looking for volunteers to help.

Why not organise a collection day in your workplace or simply ask your employers to help us sell our Gold Hearts!

Give a Gold Heart as a Favour

Did you know that you can give a Gold Heart as a favour at an event such as a wedding? It is becoming increasing popular to give a donation to a charity, in lieu of presenting each guest with a favour. If you give a Gold Heart as a favour, not only are you helping Variety – the Children’s Charity of Ireland, but your guests also get a fantastic Gold Heart to take home with them!
