The Ray D’Arcy Show launched #DressedByAChild campaign to raise money for LauraLynn, calling on the nation to allow a child to style you, whilst raising much needed funds in the process.  Ray has embraced the #DressedByAChild initiative by putting his wardrobe in the hands of his daughter Kate D’Arcy all this week.


To show your support, allow a child complete control of your wardrobe – it could be your son, daughter, niece, nephew or neighbour who can transform you as they wish.  Share your photo on Social Media, nominate friends and donate €4 by texting LAURALYNN to 50300.  Ray has already nominated 2fm’s Ryan Tubridy, presenter Dáithi Ó’Se and Lucy Kennedy.


RTÉ Radio 1 presenter Ray D’Arcy said:

“LauraLynn is Ireland’s only children’s hospice and is one of the most deserving charities there is. The work they have to do is both heart-breaking and life affirming at the same time. It’s wonderful to think that children can be involved in raising money for children who are less fortunate than themselves. So, surrender yourself to a child in your life and let them dress you for a photo. Post it up on social media  and donate by texting LAURALYNN to 50300 and use the #DressedByAChild”.


To donate €4 Text LAURALYNN to 50300 (VAT may apply on some networks where a minimum of €3.26 will go to LauraLynn. Service provided by LikeCharity.)
