No one wants their child to grow up to be homeless on Christmas day

Help us make this a reality

Ruairí's parents certainly didn't. As he puts it, "When I was a kid, I never thought I would spend Christmas on the streets."

"I remember sitting in a doorway soaked to the bone. My thoughts were so dark."

Will you hold a Cork Simon Christmas Jumper Day so we can be there for people like Ruairí turning to us for help this Christmas?

This year we’re asking you to host your Christmas Jumper Day at home, at the office, at school, online or anywhere you can to celebrate the joy of Christmas and raise much-needed funds so no one has to spend Christmas like Ruairí.


"This Christmas, like every Christmas, there will be people’s sons and daughters on the streets of Cork. They will be cold, lonely and desperate – just like I was."

We hope you will join us this Christmas to help support men and women experiencing homelessness by wearing your Christmas jumper to work, school, or anywhere you can to raise much-needed funds.

How your jumper day helps people like Ruairí experiencing homelessness this Christmas
