Eoin’s birthday celebration 2015

A few years ago OMG! EoinMacken! came up with the idea of raising money for a good cause instead of making a video, book, … with birthday wishes for Eoin. What an awesome idea, an idea that couldn’t stop going! As there wasn’t a charity last year, I thought I could pick up where they left off and what better charity to choose than the one he’s ambassador for, SIGHTSAVERS.

He and his good friend Tim McDonnell took a trip to Mozambique in August to witness Sightsavers’ work there and shot a documentary for A Million Miracles, their campain that launched in October. The documentary isn’t finished yet, but you can watch his below. Hopefully you’ll find this way of saying ‘Happy Birthday Eoin’ just as special, awesome, fun, heart warming as I do. Any donations are welcome.
