Helping Our Homeless – A Gift for Schools

I am hoping that you might consider contributing to my fund to help the Simon Community in their sterling work providing vital services for our homeless.

I have launched a fundraiser called Helping Our Homeless - A Gift for Schools. For every €20 raised through donations to my JustGiving fund, I will gift a copy of my book ‘Sixty Photographs for Simon’ on behalf of the Simon Community to a school. Information rich, the book is a valuable teaching resource brim-full of material for projects and classwork. There are 4,016 schools countrywide and working closely with the Simon Community we are hoping to gift a copy of the book to every single one of them.                                                                                              

To clarify, I am not asking people to donate €20 to cover a book. If you can, fine, but no donation is too small. Every Euro counts. The Sahara Desert covers an area of around 3.5 million square miles. It began with a single grain of sand!  

So, if you have a spare couple of euros that you can send in it will make a huge difference to so many. As the incident of the rough sleeper who was beaten to death recently in a laneway in Kilmainham, Dublin, highlights, living on the streets can be extremely dangerous. Donations can, and actually do, save lives. They will not only support the Simon Community in their work with our homeless but also help our young scholars who have recently experienced so much uncertainty and disruption due to the COVID crisis.

I would very much appreciate it if you could help me get word out there about my fund by forwarding this email and link and sharing it with family and friends if you are on social media. It only takes a moment and would be a huge help. The wider the cast - the greater the catch!

My promotional video detailing the project can be viewed at the link below.
