All funds raised from the pop up shop stay in Limerick and will go to the CARI Limerick branch. 

CARI is a leading voluntary organisation that provides child centered specialised therapy and support to children, families and groups affected by child sexual abuse. The CARI foundation is a registered charity that has two full time centres in Dublin and Limerick. As well as this, CARI also provides outreach therapy sessions in Meath, Galway, Kerry and Wicklow. CARI helps those who have been affected by abuse and supports them during their recovering process, working to ensure that child sexual abuse is seen as an experience but not a defining event in the child’s life. The foundation gives children a safe environment filled with hope, trust and confidence which leads them to a path of recovery through therapy. The non-profit organisation has been shinning a light for children for the last 25 years.

If any one would like to donate any of the items listed above come along to 24 Patrick Street and support the CARI Pop up shop 2016. All funds raised from this years pop up shop go directly to provide therapy and counselling services for children and their families affected by child sexual abuse. As CARI is a charity, they depend heavily on the donations from the public so why not donate some unwanted clothes or discarded toys you no longer need and help CARI continue the amazing work they do. If you have nothing to donate come along and “CARI” home a bargain.
