A message from the CEO of Celtic Charity Fund……
Thousands of Celtic Supporters have had a look at the 1254125 web page, with hundreds having taken the pledge to do their 125. I am hugely encouraged by the global response from Celtic Supporters to date, from Scotland, the USA, Ireland and Australia to name but a few.
Over the next few weeks we will update the 1254125 web site and provide you with more information regarding events planned over the forthcoming year by ourselves and Celtic Supporters. We will also inform you of community projects we are launching which will help those most in need.
The question I would ask is what help we can provide you in delivering your very own fundraising ideas. Do you need materials; publicity; advice; or just want hooked up with like-minded Celtic supporters in your area?
Please, let us know and we will respond as best we can.
Remember, tell us what you plan to do, ask us how we can help you, and together we will do our 125 for 125.

The Celtic Charity Fund has always been an integral part of our football club, uniting the Celtic Family around the world in collectively-held values and beliefs.
Our primary focus has always been that of improving the lives of the poorest and most vulnerable people all over the world, and in our 125th anniversary year we want to do much more. In Britain alone we have more than 13.5 million people living in poverty. That's more than one in five without enough to live on, discriminated against, and excluded from society. On our own doorstep, Glasgow's East End has the highest rate in the UK for children living in workless households, positioning Celtic Park right at the heart of communities who need our help the most.
We aim to refocus our activities and investment within communities and people who are the most in need, from Coatbridge to Belfast, Dublin to Port Glasgow, Glasgow's East End to Kibera in Kenya.
Leading children's charities regard the first 1,000 days of a child's life to be critical to their future development and well-being. This aligns closely with our proposal to design and deliver a 1,000-day community programme aimed at children who need our help. To achieve this, we need the Celtic family to take the pledge, sign up, and do 1254125.
We would like every Celtic supporter across the globe to raise £125 in our 125th anniversary year. We are asking you to walk a million miles to raise funds to deliver our 1254125 campaign. It will be a collective effort, from supporters' clubs in Philadelphia, to Celtic mums in Wishaw. Every Celtic supporter can get involved and decide how and where they will walk, cycle, or run part of the million miles, and we will help you all the way. With a full calendar of events and activities planned, we will update our events page soon to keep you informed.
In the meantime sign up to help with our campaign and we will be in contact shortly.
