Pieta House launches FeelGood Week
Stars show their support for new initiative
Pieta House, has launched a new initiative, FeelGood Week, to bring people together to remind themselves of how good they can feel and raise vital funds.
Pieta House FeelGood Week will take place from October 20th to 27th.  This initiative is designed to help people #FindtheFeeling through a nationwide campaign of wellness, mindfulness, active, social and fun events.
A host of stars have already pledged their support to the FeelGood campaign including Dublin four-in-a-row winner Paul Flynn, rugby heroes Jack McGrath and Hannah Tyrrell, celebrity chef Derry Clarke, Game of Thrones actor Moe Dunford and well-known radio DJ Nikki Hayes.
To take part Pieta House is calling on people to get together with family, friends or workmates to organise a FeelGood event. It can be anything at all – from yoga sessions, a book club get together or that great hike along the Wild Atlantic Way.  It could even be that reunion lunch with some old friends.  For inspiration and event ideas, visit www.pieta.ie/feelgood.

Brian Higgins, CEO, Pieta House commented; “What you do is not important – it’s all about taking the time and reminding yourself how good you can feel, reaching out to others and enjoying time together. You’ll also be helping raise vital funds for those among us who struggle with feelings of hopelessness or despair.
We want to bring our services to all who need them, when they need them and where they need them. Almost 85% of all funds come from the generosity of the people for which we are truly grateful as without their support, we could not continue the services we currently provide on our 24/7 Helpline and in our 15 centres around Ireland.”

Are you ready to #FindTheFeeling? It’s easy to take part. You can register your fundraiser FREE on www.pieta.ie/feelgood.
