Irish Charity Benefitting From Euro 2012 T-shirt Link Up

A leading Irish t-shirt website have teamed up with Barretstown, with €4 from every sale going to the children’s charity.

 With just five weeks until Ireland kick off their Euro 2012 campaign against Croatia fans can now snap up a bargain t-shirt from Be Seen In Green, who have launched three limited edition t-shirts for Ireland fans looking to get behind their country in their first major competition in over ten years.

The Euro 2012 t-shirt range features designs including  “God Save Our Keane”,“El Shay” and a famous quote from the outspoken pundit and ex Irish international  Eamonn Dunphy.

Be Seen In Green will be donating €4 of every sale to Barretstown. Barretstown is a Kildare-based camp uniquely designed for children who have been through a serious illness.  Barretstown, which primarily focuses on cancer, works to assist in the recovery process through activity based therapy.

Speaking about the link up Ruth Craig, who is Community Fundraising Manager at Barretstown said “Childhood cancer affects many families in Ireland each year and the team at Barretstown are delighted that €4 from the sale of every Be Seen In Green t-shirt will be donated to camp to help provide life changing experiences for even more children in 2012.”

The t-shirts can be purchased online by clicking the link . Follow Be Seen In Green on Twitter (@seen_in_green) and Facebook to join in the excitement as Giovanni Trapattoni’s side get set to invade Poland.
