Birthday Fundraisers

Make a difference with your birthday this year

Do you have a birthday in April, May or June? Why not hold a birthday fundraiser in aid of Focus Ireland?

The Coronavirus/Covid-19 crisis has already deeply affected all of our lives in so many ways. But, for the thousands of people living in homelessness or in crowded single rooms in emergency accommodation, the Coronavirus outbreak is a living nightmare.

We urgently need your help to enable us to reach out to as many vulnerable people as possible. Those that are homeless and struggling to stay safe.

If you have a birthday coming up, you may not be able to get together with your friends and family but you can use your birthday to help those most in need!


By setting up a Birthday Fundraiser on your Facebook page in aid of Focus Ireland and ask your friends and family members for donations instead of gifts this year.

To set up your birthday fundraiser, click HERE and follow the steps shown by Facebook. Or go onto your Facebook page and search ‘Birthday Fundraiser’ in the search bar. Then click ‘Create a Birthday Fundraiser’.


If you don’t have Facebook, you could make a donation from your birthday money through the donate button below!


You could also set up your Birthday Fundraiser on another platform such as Everydayhero or Idonate.


When your Birthday Fundraiser is set up you can share the fundraiser on your social media pages such as Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. You can text friends asking them to go onto your page to donate and you can thank each friend and family member as they donate.

After you’ve set up your Birthday Fundraiser, please email events@focusireland.ie to let us know. We will be in touch to support you anyway we can.

Or fill in the form below to register your interest and we can guide you how to set up and promote your Birthday Fundraiser.
