Give1thing.com This Christmas
All Hallows Theology & Psychology Student Orla Cashell has embarked with some fellow students from the National College of Ireland on a dedicated campaign to help the homeless this Christmas in a very specific way.
Her idea is simple. Orla is asking that we would donate 1 thing to help the homeless this Christmas so that they are helped and are not forgotten.
Here’s her promotional video: Give 1 Thing This Christmas To The Homeless
On 12 November, there were 139 people sleeping rough in Dublin city. That is an increase of nearly 50%, since the previous street count in April this year. The rise in the rough sleeper count reflects the trend of a spike in the demand for our services. We have supported a total of 9,237 people so far this year who were homeless or at risk of losing their homes.
