Sponsor A Star

Year on year, we are delighted with the continued support of the business community, from multinationals to family-run businesses. Once again, this Christmas, we are asking businesses to help us fight homelessness by sponsoring a star on the Focus Ireland Tree on Dublin’s Grafton Street.

At Focus Ireland, we believe that everyone has the right to a place they can call home – no child should have to face Christmas without a safe and secure home.

The current trend is worrying – the number of people who are officially homeless has reached a record high of 10,805 people, including 3,220 children. This is a shocking 30% increase from only a year ago.

Together we can do something about it.

Each star is an incredible gift to families during the toughest of times and since 2001, thousands of stars have helped raise funds for vital homelessness services.
