Limerick and Munster star Keith Earls has decided to raffle-off the match jersey he wore during Ireland’s 16-9 win over the then World Champions in the Aviva Stadium.
On his Instagram account, Earls said,
“I am hoping to raise as much money as possible for Barnardos Ireland. Barnardos front line staff have rapidly adapted their essential services to children and families since the Coronavirus crisis began. They are delivering door drops with basics, like food parcels and baby supplies as well as providing vital emotional and practical support to families who are reaching breaking point.
So, I’ve been searching my brain for a way I can help really vulnerable children and families in Ireland. This is the jersey I wore against New Zealand , our first win on home soil in the Aviva.
I’m going to run a giveaway over my social media accounts and would encourage you to donate what you can if you’re interested in owning this jersey signed by myself. It was worn during a pivotal game for Irish Rugby and I am hoping it is somewhat of a collector’s item.
No matter what you can give, big or small, it will go a very long way in supporting Ireland’s most vulnerable children and families at this time. Anyone who donates will be included in the raffle. Link in my bio. I’ll pick a winner randomly next week Tuesday the 7th of April .
All support is greatly appreciated.”
