Ma's on mission toy appeal

Have you heard about the Facebook group 'Ma's on a mission'?

Well the group has over a hundred thousand members and acts as a platform for women to interact, share problems, concerns and advice with other women.

It was in this group that the idea to create a toy appeal for the benefit of less fortunate children in Ireland was born.

The appeal aims to source as many toys as possible for disadvantaged kids with the mantra 'every child deserves a toy a Christmas' the driving force behind the initiative. 

To tell us more Joe is joined in studio with one of the appeal's organisers - Sharon Kiely Shanahan..
