Food delivery firm Deliveroo has collaborated with Irish illustrator Fuchsia MacAree to create pizza boxes that double up as Valentine's Day cards.
The design features a couple having a romantic night in, with a pun printed above them.
The Valentine's card pizzas are available via Deliveroo from February 12 until February 14 by ordering PI in Dublin, Pompeii Pizza in Cork and Woozza in Galway via the Deliveroo app and requesting a pizza in one of the boxes by adding it as a free item to your basket.
Additionally, for every pizza sold, Deliveroo will be donating €5 to Helium Arts, which empowers children living with medical conditions through creativity and the arts.

Deliveroo Ireland spokesperson Arabella Jenkins stated, "We are extremely proud to support the fantastic work Helium Arts do with this creative collaboration. Fuchsia MacAree is such a talent and really brought this concept to life with her one-of-a-kind illustration that is sure to make your Valentine’s day pizza that extra bit 'roomantic'!"

MacAree stated, "It's been great fun collaborating with Deliveroo this Valentine's Day. I know first-hand how cathartic art can be, so am delighted this unique spin on a Valentine's Day card will help support the amazing work Helium Arts does throughout Ireland."
Statement By Helium Arts CEO
Helium Arts CEO Helene Hugel stated, "The participatory arts programmes Helium Arts provides help children and teenagers across Ireland that are living with the long-term effects of chronic illness. Through our programmes they develop their confidence, talent and independence, while we foster creative healthy environments around them so they have better outcomes. We're delighted to see Deliveroo and Fuchsia shine a spotlight on the work we do and hope it encourages even more people to get involved."
