IKEA, supporting Irish Red Cross COVID-19 response efforts


IKEA touches the lives of millions around the world and has long promised to stand by the side of many people. This is true now more than ever. We are guided by a simple, yet powerful vision of creating a better everyday life for many people. To be part of people’s lives at home is a unique privilege for us. As the COVID-19 crisis puts hospitals, medical centers and shelters under unprecedented pressure, we believe we have a role to play in ensuring these spaces provide the same comfort, wellbeing and dignity of a home.


Through our partnership with the Irish Red Cross, we are prioritising the needs of high-risk groups, providing immediate relief through in-kind donations.


We also hope to mobilise our customers and co-workers to support the Irish Red Cross’ COVID-19 Emergency Appeal. These donations will help to raise and distribute funds to support communities made most vulnerable by the coronavirus outbreak.




Nobody knows exactly what lies ahead in the coming weeks and months.  


But we do know that, whatever comes, the Irish Red Cross volunteers – part of an incredible network of over 2,000 highly trained people that are right here in Ireland, are playing a central role, assisting the emergency services and supporting vulnerable and isolated people.


You too can help support our community by donating today.


 €50 could help to fund oxygen rebreathers in ambulances

 €100 could help support our Irish Red Cross ambulance transfer service

 €250 could help to fund a defibrillator which could save a life following a serious cardiac incident

 €300 could buy PPE (personal protective equipment) for Red Cross volunteers


Thank You!
