Bringing “heART” to the streets of Dublin thanks to Dublin Bus

by Celine Dee

From 28th May to 8th July, the Creatives Against Covid19 “Have HeART” campaign will be showcased on 101 buses throughout the streets of Dublin thanks to the very generous support of Dublin Bus. 

The goal of the campaign is to inspire Irish people to “Have HeART” by purchasing an original art print from the Creatives Against Covid19 online store. The proceeds from every purchase will be donated equally between ISPCC Childline and Women’s Aid, helping vulnerable women and children affected by the current pandemic. 

Supporters of the campaign are now able to spot some of their favourite artwork on the 50 sightline and 50 t-side bus ads as well as on the beautiful full wrap on Route 46a which travels right through Dublin city from the Phoenix Park in the north to Dun Laoghaire in the south. 

Throughout the current crisis, Dublin Bus has been working bravely and tirelessly to keep Dublin city moving for essential workers. And now, thanks to their support, we hope that our campaign of optimism and resilience will brighten up the commute of those who work on the frontline every day.

“It has always been important to us in Dublin Bus to play an active part in communities across the city. Throughout this pandemic, we have played our part by providing a safe and reliable service for frontline employees and essential journeys. Our partnership with Creatives Against Covid19 has provided us with another opportunity to help our communities. This initiative is a great example of how people have pulled together during this challenging time to not only create inspiring messages of hope, but also to support some of the most vulnerable people in our society who have been made more vulnerable by this pandemic.”

Ray Coyne, CEO Dublin Bus

 “We are so honoured to be one of the beneficiaries of this wonderful artistic fundraising campaign that has generated such an incredible outpouring of extraordinary, inspiring and beautiful works. The support of Dublin Bus means increased visibility across the capital, helping to drive sales. To all involved – thank you.”
