Kiss 'Goodbye' to MS

County Donegal supporters asked to ‘Wear, Dare & Share’ to support local people wit

As the inaugural Kiss Goodbye to MS campaign enters its final two weeks, MS Ireland is calling on County Donegal supporters to ‘Wear, Dare and Share’ in support of more than 9,000 people living with Multiple Sclerosis in Ireland.

MS is the most common disabling neurological condition of young adults in Ireland, with no known cause or cure. All funds raised during the Kiss Goodbye to MS campaign (4th February – 18th March) will support vital services for local people living with MS.

Originally an initiative of MS Research Australia, MS Ireland joins seven MS organisations throughout the world taking part in Kiss Goodbye to MS this year. Supporters are invited to get involved in three ways: Wear their favourite red lipstick, item of clothing or accessory; share their kiss on social media with the #kissgoodbyetoms and text SMOOCH to 50300 to donate *€4; DARE to sign up for the Kiss Goodbye to MS Skydive; SHARE the message by hosting a red themed fundraising event. Further information and event packs are available from www.kissgoodbyetoms.ie

Ava Battles, CE at MS Ireland, the national organisation providing vital services, information and support to the MS community commented: “We have been delighted with the response so far. Supporters from all over Ireland have been sharing kisses on social media, hosting innovative fundraising events and some brave souls have even signed up for the MS Skydive in March. With just over two weeks to go, I urge even more people to get involved to show their support and help us to raise both awareness and essential funds for the provision of services for those living with MS here in Ireland.”
