Enactus UCC: #BeTheLight 💡

SparkED are proud to be involved with “Be the Light” 💡

Here at SparkED, one of our core values is giving back! We wore yellow at our weekly Zoom meeting to support the campaign 💛

‘BE THE LIGHT’ campaign’s aim is to get as many people in Ireland to wear the colour yellow on Friday the 26th of February to raise awareness of homelessness this New Year and the COVID-19 situation.

All proceeds will go to Focus Ireland and The Simon Community ✨

How to get involved:
To play your part in helping homelessness in 2021-
1. Post on social media a photo of you wearing the colour yellow using #bethelight hashtag.
2. Donate whatever you can here on the gofundme page: Be the Light 💡

The focus on the colour yellow comes from the common colour that Enactus Worldwide uses, Focus Ireland uses and The Simon Community uses.

This campaign is being run and organized by University College Cork Enactus Society. Enactus UCC is a local branch of a worldwide organisation for student entrepreneurs aiming to make the world a better place by bringing bright students together to create meaningful projects and campaigns.
