Long standing CCI Voluntary and MyLegacy.ie Chairperson, Fergal O’Sullivan, recently spoke to Evening Echo about the impact legacy donations have on our work.
This My Legacy Week, Chernobyl Children International ask you to continue to support us by leaving a legacy gift in your will, after you have taken care of your family and loved ones. Large or small, it is a special and personal way to make an impact on causes you cherish most for the future.
We are part of My Legacy, an umbrella group of over 50 Irish charities who work together to highlight how important it is for everybody to have a will and to ask people to remember a charity they care about, once all other important personal decisions have been made.
Many Irish people put off making a will even though it is not a daunting experience and can give you peace of mind. A solicitor has a checklist of all the things to be decided upon and once that is done, you can add whatever legacy gift you feel is right and possible. Most of us have been touched by the amazing work charities do in our lives and communities. Three simple steps is all it takes to remember those you care about in your will.
You can learn more about leaving a legacy gift to charity and find a local solicitor to help you make your will at www.mylegacy.ie
