Help The Homeless At Christmas

“The greatest gift you can give a child this Christmas is a home.”

So I’ve decided to set up a go fund me page in an attempt to raise money for the homeless in Ireland for Christmas 2019.  All donations will go to Focus Ireland who use the money to provide well-needed nutritious meals for families, reach out to a family in crisis ASAP and provide vital support for children in emergency accommodation. 

There are roughly 10,397 homeless individuals in Ireland at the moment - 4,000 of which are children.

This time of year can be so difficult for the ordinary family - even those who have a home. So it cannot even be comprehended how difficult it is for those who are homeless. 

Im just hoping by raising even a small amount of money through this that Focus Ireland will have the ability to make even one families Christmas just that bit better.

Remember - children will return to school after the Christmas break where the other kids will be talking about how amazing their Christmas was - decorating their home, spending time with family, the excitement of Christmas Eve , family day outs, the presents etc etc.. whereas, a lot of children will not have that same experience. 

I’m going to leave this page running until the 12th December 2019. I’ll send all donations to Focus Ireland on that day which gives the organisation a bit of time to put things in place for Christmas! 

Honestly, every little helps. 

UPDATE - Thank you again everyone who has donated so far. Just so you know - vouchers will be purchased out of the donations for Dunnes/Tesco/Lidl/Penney’s/Smyths etc. So families can go out and purchase the essentials this Christmas  such as food, clothes, toys! ❤️ Thank you all xx
