For many people the last year has been filled with darkness and isolation. And right now, so many of our neighbours, family and friends are struggling or feeling alone. This year, the Pieta House Darkness Into Light campaign needs your help more than ever.
We may not be able to gather together in the way that we normally would but that’s not going to stop us. Instead, we are going to come together in even greater numbers, in more locations and in even more creative ways than ever before!
Together our goal is simple. We want to spread light and hope into every town, every village, every home and every heart – not just in Ireland but all over the world.
This year, more than ever, we want you to share the unique and powerful experience of Darkness Into Light with your loved ones, family and friends.
Invite them all to take part in Darkness Into Light on May 8th whereever they may be and together you will be part of this extraordinary global movement. You will be joining over 200,000 people from all over the world – all standing together in a celebration of hope.
Remember every euro you help to contribute, through your registration fee or by fundraising, will help ensure that Pieta’s free, lifesaving services remain available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. And every friend you invite to join you will be helping to spread hope and vital awareness.
We hope that you will sign up for this year’s walk, invite your friends, families and colleagues to take part and to complete the walk in a location of your choice while adhering to all Covid and public health guidelines. You could have a huge impact on the number of people that Pieta can help this year. Why not start a virtual team and get some healthy competition going, or make it a family activity and encourage the rest of your household to get on board?
Join Pieta and Electric Ireland for a special Darkness Into Light Sunrise, and give the gift of hope to those impacted by suicide and self-harm. Join in any way you can – walk, swim, bike or simply share your sunrise moment with us on the Pieta and Darkness into Light social media pages.
You are about to be a part of something truly extraordinary. #DIL2021 #DarknessIntoLight2021
