Sambos for Ambos - Help feed our frontline

Let's try to get at least one sandwich to every ambulance service worker, hospital personnel, doctor, nurse, pharmacist, healthcare worker and COVID-19 volunteer.

I have created a website to supply more information  and Facebook  & Twitter accounts so I can show you how your donations are being put to good use.

Starting in Co. Wicklow lets see how many sandwiches we can supply to our hardworking front-line services. A sandwich costs €2.50 to supply and deliver, thanks to the help of local small businesses. Can we all spare a little to make a difference and to tell our hardworking front-line hero's how much we really appreciate their hard work during these challenging times?

As a way to say thank you and say we appreciate all your hard work. I have created this go fund me page #sambosforambos as a place to donate as little as €5 to buy a couple of sandwiches for our hard-working heroes. You might say its only a sandwich but to a stressed-out ambulance driver who hasn't had a chance to stop today and grab some food, it's appreciated. To the volunteer who also lost their job due to COVID-19 closures and has decided to help at the new pop-up testing centers its a meal, they don't have the money to buy themselves. It's a quick bite to eat for a crazy busy nurse trying their best to just keep up. It might be only a sandwich but its a THANK YOU from all of us to these wonderful front-line workers.

Get in touch with your suggestions for local places with busy front line workers so we can say thank you with a sambo!

Helping each other is what we Irish are all about, let’s give some kindness back because when the tough gets going we all support each other, right?

These are unprecedented times and everyone is a little scared right now. Can you imagine how our front-line servicemen and women must feel? They are putting their own health aside in aid to do their job and help our country and our sick and vulnerable cope with this Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic Ireland is facing. None of us know yet what will come and what will happen in Ireland but what we do know is that the Irish are there for each other in times of need. We look out for one another, we support each other and we help each other where we can. That is where the idea for Sambos for Ambos came from. 

There is no big corporation or business behind this cause, just a local graphic designer and mum of 2 - Hazel Hoad , I started this campaign to help,  I just want our front-line and emergency services to know we are supporting them and to say thank you for all their hardwork.

I need your help to make this a real thing. Can you spare €5 to buy a couple of sandwiches for these hard-working heroes? Any amount little or large will go a long way to showing appreciation. As donations come in, sandwiches will start to go out. Maybe we can partner with a local coffee shop as well to get some much-needed caffeine in the mix.

I will post everything on our social media pages to stay transparent so you know where the donations are going.
