Ireland is experiencing a homelessness crisis, there are currently 8,500 people who are homeless and children make up  over 3,000 of that total. We decided to do a charity collection for Focus Ireland to raise funds and awareness of the charity. Focus Ireland is a charity who  work with people who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless across Ireland. We held the collection on the Sunday morning before Christmas and raised over €1,000.00. This money will go directly to Focus Ireland, where it will be use to assist the homeless and those at risk of homelessness . We carried out the charity collection as part of our Leaving Cert Politics and Society Project.
