Kerry for Choice is a grassroots, all volunteer group. We are not in receipt of public funding and are fully reliant on donations and fundraising events.
Throughout 2019, we hope to raise money through our supporters to use to continue our fight in Kerry for abortion services that are truly free, safe, legal and local. As members of the Abortion Rights Campaign we also encourage donations to the national campaign here or via their shop.
Kerry for Choice primarily plan to spend funds on venue hire for meetings, banners and leaflets for our information stalls, educational events, trainings, and workshops on topics like stigma busting, civic empowerment, values clarification and transport to Dublin for the annual Abortion Rights Campaign March for Choice.
How to donate
Chrissy Curtin, a Kerry-based illustrator, is donating 15% of the proceeds from her gorgeous Together for Yes print to Kerry for Choice. The design is available as a print, greeting card and phone case.
As a regional group of the Abortion Rights Campaign and members of the Coalition to Repeal the Eighth Amendment, we have joined the Together for Yes campaign and will be campaigning for a yes vote in the referendum on May 25th.
Over the next six weeks, Kerry for Choice hopes to raise €500 through our supporters to use for referendum campaigning in Kerry. We will also be encouraging donations to the Together for Yes campaign. Kerry for Choice plan to primarily spend funds on venue hire for meetings, banners for our information stalls, leaflets and canvassing materials over the course of the referendum campaign.
How to donate
As a regional group of the Abortion Rights Campaign and Together for Yes, we are covered by the Standards in Public Office Commission (SIPO). This means we can only accept donations from Irish citizens and people living in Ireland. Those who do not meet this criteria, but would like to support the referendum campaign can purchase some merch from the Together for Yes and Abortion Rights Campaign shops here and here.
