Get On Board! The Christmas Bus has arrived.
Starting this weekend, and running every weekend throughout the month, shoppers visiting Dublin city can experience the new DublinTown and Visa ‘Tap to Give for Good’ Christmas Bus.
Arriving today on Stephen’s Green North beside Grafton Street at 1pm, Dublin city’s first open top snow-covered alpine forest offers unique festive photo opportunities and visitors can wrap presents for children at the ‘Christmas Elves’ Workshop which will be donated to charity partners Focus Ireland, the ISPCC and Little Blue Heroes. All of the presents to be wrapped have been kindly donated by Starbucks.
The Christmas bus is part of a new ‘Tap to Give for Good’ festive charity partnership between DublinTown and Visa that makes it easy and fun for Dublin city visitors to give to deserving children and family charities this Christmas and into 2020.
Donations start at €3 and scale up to give €5, €10 and €20 if donators so wish. For those seeking to create new special Christmas memories, the new DublinTown and Visa ‘Tap to Give for Good’ Christmas Bus will alternate on a daily basis across every weekend in the run up to Christmas between Stephen’s Green North and O’Connell Street.

Customers will have the opportunity to support these worthy causes over the festive season and during 2020 as the contactless donation devices will become a regular fixture.
So when you are shopping in #DublinTown this Christmas, it’s easier than ever to give back and make those precious Christmas memories!
