Seventeen Irish charities – some local – received cheques totaling €45,000 from the eBay Inc Give Foundation at a ceremony in PayPal’s European Centre of Excellence in Dublin on Friday.

Nominated by employees of eBay and PayPal at their Blanchardstown and Dundalk offices, the Give grants will help fund a number of local and international projects.

Some examples of how the funding will be used include: the development of a breast cancer awareness app; the training of transition year students in Blanchardstown and Clondalkin in lifesaving CPR skills; the provision of six month’s night nursing in Co Louth through the Irish Hospice Foundation and the development of a playroom in Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital’s new cardiac unit.

The charities receiving funding include an educational outreach project in Tallaght called An Cosán, Breast Cancer Awareness, Child Aid Ireland-India and CARI, which provides child-centred therapy for young people affected by child sex abuse.
