Fundraise

Set your sleep-out fundraising target, share your fundraising page, and raise funds for Shine A Light Night.

Why sleep-out?

Shine A Light Night is meant to be a night of solidarity –the goal is not to pretend to be homeless or to replicate the experience. This sleep-out is an opportunity to step out of our comfort zones to get a deeper understanding of how we can come together as a community to fight homelessness in Ireland. Wherever you choose to sleep-out and support us, expect a great night of connection, engagement, and purpose.

Why fundraise?

Focus Ireland works to bring about real and lasting change for the people who need our help. With your support Focus Ireland can reach even more people on the brink of homelessness and make a real and lasting difference to those currently living in emergency accommodation. Your support of Shine A Light Night allows Focus Ireland to provide individuals, families and children trapped in homelessness the immediate and practical support they need.
