Host a Get Together in your Workplace. Together we’ll prevent family homelessness.

What will you choose to do for your Great Get Together At Work?

 

This year why not get your workplace involved and help support Focus Ireland with Ireland’s Great Get Together? Taking part couldn’t be easier. Simply decide what makes a ‘get together’ great for you and your colleagues and organise your activity sometime during May 3rd to 5th this year.

Fundraising Ideas

There are lots of fun ideas that you and your work mates can organise to make this a day to remember, such as:

Sponsored Walk

Be healthy on your lunch break! All you have to do is get sponsored to walk, stroll, or run, a distance of your choice, with your colleagues. You could organise your walk in the park nearest your work place, or even the car park of your offices. Get creative and have fun. You and your work mates could do a distance each in relay to see how far you can go? Or how about doing your walk in fancy dress?

Fundraising Feast

Have a food sale in the office where everyone brings in one item of food to sell at lunch time! And if you have work mates from different parts of the world, you can ask them to bring a dish that represents their country. From pasta to burritos, chow mein to pierogis – the choice is yours!

Get Raffling

A great way to get everyone in your work place involved is to hold a raffle. Give yourself time to sell as many tickets as you can (enlist some help!) and then hold a Great Get Together to announce the prize winners. You could ask neighbouring businesses, your own company, or even some of its suppliers to donate the prizes.

These are just some suggestions for your Great Get Together At Work, but if you have an idea of your own, go for it! We will provide you with fundraising materials, advice, hints and tips that you need. You could for instance, ask your employers to match any funds raised by you and your work mates at your Great Get Together.

Why take part?

Give your colleagues a reason to get together in the office or after work. We believe that everyone has a right to a place they can call home and you are doing something about it! The money you raise will fund vital work to ensure more families get to have a safe and secure home of their own.

How your contribution helps:

  • €250 can help provide one-to-one specialized support for a child traumatised by their experience of homelessness.
  • €750 can help provide urgent supports for a family on the brink of crisis.
  • €1500 can provide essential resources to help prevent more families from becoming homeless.
