Cork Homeless Hero Michael

€2,553 of €2,000 goal

Raised by 115 people in 52 months
Michael who has been homeless on the streets of Cork for many years trying to survive, is a hero to every woman, daughter, sister, mother, aunt, niece,grandaughter, godmother in Cork City and County.  When convicted serial rapist Trevor Byrne landed on the streets of Cork creating a frenzy of fear walking about freely with women every very worried, homeless Michael stood up to Trevor Byrne running him out of Cork city telling him that by no means whatsover was he welcome in Cork.  Throughout my work with the homeless, Michael and myself have become friends and Michaels only wish is just to get off the streets and have a place he can call home, and as I thank you on behalf of every Cork woman I would love to raise the deposit and months rent and some funds to equip Michael in a new home that he could rent, PLEASE PLEASE People if you could donate any amount you can even a euro, it would all help, Lets do this to Thank Michael and try and get him home, Christina

I expect if you had a list of household items that he needs, they could also be donated so that all the monies raised could cover rent and give him more time to find a way of paying rent. Well done to all
