Drop your coins into any AIB or Bank of Ireland
No queuing or counting... Simply drop your coppers into one of the Change for Charity Collection Units!
What is Change for Charity:
"Change for Charity" is based on the Central Bank's rounding initiative which has been confirmed for Wednesday 28 October 2015. We are asking you to donate your unwanted 1c and 2c coins to us to help support a number of Irish charities.
Retail Outlets and Banks:
We have a number of retail partners on board, who are supporting the campaign by allowing collection units in their outlets. The units are NOW in all our retail stores, banks, shopping centres and schools.
Where does the funding go?
The profits of the campaign will be divided 6 ways – equally to the 5 charities listed and the 6th strand of income will be reserved for smaller charities, community projects, and youth groups who would like to apply for smaller amounts of funding but don’t have the resources to be involved in the overall project.
Want to become a Change for Charity Ambassador?
You can become an Ambassador by asking 10 of your friends to ask 10 of their friends to collect as many 1c and 2c coins as possible and return them to you or your local Bank of Ireland or AIB. See "How Do I Get Involved" for more information.

What do we have to do to be involved?
What do we have to do?
One of the priorities for Norma Smurfit, is to get as many schools and young people involved in the campaign as possible as she has always believed in the power of supporting young people who are the future and has supported disadvantaged youth in Ireland through many charities.
If you feel you would like your school to be involved in this nationwide collection but perhaps in a different way, please let us know as we would be happy to discuss how to make this as easy as possible for anyone involved.
