The Green Wave

The Green Wave is a social and emotional movement to support our frontline staff during the impact of Covid-19.

Join The Green Wave as it crosses Ireland in a surge of support and gratitude. Pay it forward and donate the cost of a cup of coffee for a frontline worker and we'll get it to them.

Our vision

For our frontline staff to feel an outpouring of gratitude and support to help bolster their resilience during the Covid-19 crisis.

Our mission

Everyone of us can contribute to building resilience in our health service by showing our support for staff doing such important work. We’re asking everyone to where they are able to use their social media to show their support and to pay it forward by donating the cost of a cup of coffee for a worker. We have built and are managing the systems to allow this to happen on a not-for-profit basis. All donations will go to supporting frontline staff beyond any costs incurred e.g. the cost of the cup of coffee.

We’re asking Irish people everywhere to join us in creating The Green Wave; to show support every Friday by wearing their Ireland kits, green clothes or county colours to show solidarity and support for those working intensely during the Covid crisis to help protect and care for us all. We’re asking everyone to share their Green Wave images and content online with #thegreenwave so our frontline staff can see this support for themselves.

We are using social media to build support, drive donations and proliferate The Green Wave across the country. All of this work will take place within the confines of the Irish Government’s hygiene guidelines and guidance on Covid-19 e.g. through remote working and with social distancing practiced.

We appreciate your help in these challenging times as we band together to support those putting themselves out there to care for us.
