Long weekends are a beautiful thing.
Sleeping in, drinking pints and generally having an extra 24 hours to spend pretending like we have no responsibilities nor worries.
But, not everyone is spending this glorious long weekend chilling on the couch watching First Dates and eating cereal from the box.
There are people out there working tirelessly to make this country and better, safer and generally greater for everyone out there who's struggling.
Irish charity One For Ireland has kicked off this weekend - asking everyone in Ireland to donate €1 (or more, if you have it) over one weekend - with 100% of proceeds going to youth mental health charities across the country.
Yep, it's just that simple.
Tonnes of Irish celebrities have hopped on the band wagon and gotten involved in the incredible worthy cause.

Even Mattress Mick got involved
So, basically, what they're asking you is to get involved.
But, how do we donate?
Let us gladly tell you.
To donate to One for Ireland (and thus donating to SEVEN youth mental health charities across the country - of which you can see here) you can do so here:
- By texting One to 50300*
- Donating online right here
- Or by calling into any of the following shops, and adding an extra €1 to your bill: Applegreen, Starbucks, Spar, Mace, Eurospar, XL, Londis, Fresh, Aura Leisure, Cara Pharmacies and over 150 members of the Restaurants Association of Ireland
*(Text costs €2, One for Ireland receives a minimum of €1.63. Service provider Likecharity-0766805278)
See? Easy, simple and massively rewarding.
AND EVERY SINGLE PENNY IS GOING TO YOUNG PEOPLE STRUGGLING.
So, get on it! Donate right here - and get involved in what is a truly worthy cause.
