I have received a thank you letter from Focus Ireland. 🙂 This is to all of the writers who submitted a story to “Don’t Judge a Book by its Cover,” and everyone who bought a book. 🙂
I am writing to thank you for your wonderful gift of €510.00 you pledged to Focus Ireland’s Urgent Winter Appeal today.
Your generosity and kindness mean so much to me and everyone here at Focus Ireland.
But most importantly, your wonderful gift will mean so much to the thousands of young families and children who are facing the unbearable stress and isolation of homelessness.
Today, as I write, the number of people in homelessness is higher than it has ever been. And the number of children in homelessness is now at a critical level. But thanks to your kindness and generosity, Focus Ireland can continue to support those children and their families. With your help, our expert key workers can reach more families and reach them quicker.
Because of you, our Child Support Workers can offer even more children an array of specialised supports like one-to-one counselling, play therapy and individual tuition to help them catch back up with schoolwork.
And thanks to you, Focus Ireland is helping one family escape homelessness every single day.
That is the real power of the gift you are giving.
Thank you so much for your vital support.
Ashley Balbirnie, CEO Focus Ireland
P.S. Thank you. The kind and generous gift you gave to Focus Ireland this winter will change the lives of so many of the young children and their families who have been trapped in homelessness.
