I feel like fashion blogs are kind of left out in the cold when it comes to opportunities to feature rugby players, so when this released popped into my inbox I thought, finally, a way to talk about rugby without being accused of going off-topic – because, duh, it’s for charity! Charity, as everyone knows, is the one get-out-of-jail-free card for any kind of advantage-taking. “What do you mean I left work early? I’m doing a charity swim!” Amazing. (I have never done a charity swim, for the record.)

In any case, Timberland has teamed up with the lovely lads from Munster Rugby (I also love referring to men as “lovely lads” as it feels like retribution for all of those “lovely ladies” headlines in the Star) to undertake a 13.1-mile trail run along a section of the Kerry Way, raising money for CARI, a registered charity that raises money for children and adolescents affected by the issue of sexual abuse and provides support for family members. Timberland will be holding events in their stores in Cork, Limerick, Dublin (Dundrum, Liffey Valley and South Anne Street) and Belfast on August 24th and 25th where a percentage of turnover will be donated to CARI (so hold out on any Timberland purchases!) while the Munster Rugby crew will be undertaking fundraising activities between now and the big day, August 26th.

To donate, head on over to mycharity and do so! Then leave work early; you just did something charitable.
