Shamrock Love

Shamrock Love- let's connect our world through charity.
 
We want to sow the seeds of Shamrock Love far and wide and each and every year, Shamrock Love will fundraise for 3 charities- one charity for each leaf of our shamrock.
 
In March 2022, Shamrock Love proudly supports LauraLynn Children's Hospice (Ireland), Danish Hospital Clowns (Denmark), and CCAFO (Cambodia)
 
Fundraising ends at midnight on 31st March 2022, and all donations transferred to the Shamrock Love bank account will be divided evenly and given directly to the 3 charities (excluding GoFundMe fees).

“The 3 Legged Charity Race has been supporting us since 2015, which is just fantastic. We aim to have loyal donors like Siobhan and her team and rely on this to help our families… Families from all across Ireland can access vital respite support, giving them the chance to recharge their batteries and regroup in a calm, fun, and welcoming environment. Thank you for making that happen.”

“With the race’s support, we’ve been able to spread happiness and joy and give strength and courage to hospitalized children so that they can better cope with their treatment and illness. We are very grateful for the valuable support from the 3 Legged Charity Race as we are completely dependent on contributions like this to be able to be there for the children. Thanks for making our work possible.”

Cambodian Children’s Advocacy Foundation Organisation (CCAFO)

Established in 2006, CCAFO is a Cambodian NGO working to address the root causes of rural poverty through early-childhood education, community development programs, and economic assistance.



Back in 2010, Shamrock Love founder Siobhán Kelleher-Petersen was introduced to CCAFO through the Irish community in Cambodia. Since 2010, the 3 Legged Charity Race and Shamrock Love has donated over 164,700 DKK (~€22,000) to CCAFO.  This money was used to support CCAFO’s village-based preschool program and English language projects. 


 
 
“In May 2016, a classroom was built at the CCAFO English Language Center in Kampong Speu Province. The construction was made possible by friends at the St. Patricks Day 3 Legged Charity Race in Copenhagen, Denmark.”
