As the charity St Vincent de Paul expects that 50,000 families in Ireland will seek help this winter, Mastercard is launching an appeal with Newstalk 106-108fm to raise money for those in need.
 
During every show from November 27th to December 1st, Newstalk listeners can text PRICELESS to 50300 (St Vincent de Paul will receive a minimum of €1.80) to be in with a chance of winning a once-in-a-lifetime Priceless Experience.
 
Each text costs €2 (St Vincent de Paul will receive a minimum of €1.80), and all funds raised will go to St Vincent de Paul to help families in need this Christmas. Plus, for every text, Mastercard will donate five school meals to children in Mali, Africa, through the World Food Programme.
 
Jason Lalor, Country Manager with Mastercard Ireland said: “Sadly, there are thousands of people in Ireland who will suffer this winter, and many around the world who go to bed hungry every night. Our appeal will help the neediest people here at home and in Africa – so for just €2 (St Vincent de Paul will receive a minimum of €1.80) you can help your neighbours and children in Mali, one of the poorest countries in the world.”  
 
The initiative coincides with Giving Tuesday, a global movement that Mastercard partners with to do good for charity on November 28th.
 
Earlier this year, Mastercard announced a global fight against hunger, committing to raise enough to fund 100 Million Meals through the World Food Programme and local charities around the world.
 
In Ireland, Mastercard has built a dedicated donations site where Mastercard holders can sign up to make very small donations every time they use their card. At www.mastercard.ie/donate cardholders can set donation amounts (e.g as little as €0.05 for every transaction), set a monthly cap, or make a one-off donation.
 
 
Text the word PRICELESS to 50300 to donate €2 to St Vincent de Paul. St Vincent de Paul will receive a minimum of €1.80.
For every text you send, Mastercard will donate 5 meals to the World Food Programme.
You’ll also be in with a chance of winning a tailor-made, Priceless experience in Canada, Bali, Cape Town, England or the French Alps every time you donate.
Feeding their future really is Priceless... so text PRICELESS to 50300 to donate now.
Text costs €2. St Vincent de Paul will receive a minimum of €1.80.
