Ireland is in a midst of a homelessness crisis, and it will take all of us working together to tackle it. This year, Checkout is proud to get behind Focus Ireland’s Shine A Light Night, which will take place on Friday, October 13.
This is an remarkably touching event, in which Ireland’s Business Community is invited to come together for one night to raise funds and show solidarity with people experiencing homelessness in Ireland today.
Speaking on the event, editor of Checkout, Jenny Whelan said, "The issue of homelessness is incredibly close to my heart. It has affected my own family, and many people in my own community. This initiative is both an important way of raising awareness, as well as the funds that are so sorely needed by those who are seeking to help those affected.
"I am calling on every business that can to do their part in taking on the homelessness crisis."
Focus Ireland is inviting Irish business leaders to take part in sleep-outs at Dublin’s Christ Church Cathedral or Munster’s Cork City Gaol, or to get their teams together to Shine a Light at Work by hosting a workplace sleep-out. Don't miss your chance to support this hugely important initiative.
