Hi all, I've been asked by a FB friend - Frank Devenney - to help raise money to buy sleeping bags for the homeless. Frank has been involved with the homeless for many years but at this time of year there is a huge demand for good quality sleeping bags for those who have no accommodation.

I'm calling the campaign "Sleep Tight" and I'm keeping it very simple...all I'm asking for is a donation of €5 and for people to share the campaign on their Facebook pages in order to reach as wide an audiience as possible. The campaign will run until St Patrick's Day (17th March).  I know that many people can't afford to give a lot - that's why I'm limiting the donation to five euro so everyone gives the same and there is no pressure to give more than you can afford.

Homelessness is on the increase and can happen for all sorts of reasons - loss of income, mental health issues, addictions etc.  It can happen to anyone and at any time - it could even happen to you or a member of your  family

There just aren't enough beds or accommodation for everyone but even a sleeping bag can make a big difference to someone.

Even if you can't donate, please share and ask your friends to share too - this is very important.

The money raised will go directly to buy sleeping bags.  After deduction of Paypal charges, 100% of your donation will go directly where it is needed.

Finally can I ask that if you "like" then please "share" to help spread the word. People often share posts of situations that they can do nothing about - but you can do something about this so please share this one too. 

Thank you,

Mary Kavanagh
