We need your help raise awareness of the of the homeless crisis on World Homeless Day 10th October 2018.
Just Eat will donate €1 to the Peter McVerry Trust every time its message is shared on social media between 8th and 10th October, World Homeless Day.
The concept of ‘World Homeless Day’ emerged from online discussions between people working to respond to homelessness all around the globe. Just Eat is asking consumers to help spread awareness of the great work undertaken by Peter McVerry Trust to house those affected by homelessness by sharing a video on Just Eat’s Facebook and Twitter channels between the 8th and the 10th of October. For every unique video share, Just Eat will donate €1 to the Peter McVerry Trust.
Just Eat has supported Peter McVerry Trust for the past three years, helping to raise additional funds, by driving awareness and the provision of food for young people on dedicated days at the youth cafes throughout the city. This three-year partnership has to date raised over €50,000 and helped to house 5 people previously affected by homelessness.
Amanda Roche-Kelly, Managing Director of Just Eat Ireland said “We are all acutely aware of the plight of homeless people in Ireland and believe that we all have a responsibility to help do what we can to help alleviate the problem. Our customers tend to have the opportunity to open a front door to accept a delivery from one of our restaurant partners. We are very aware that not everyone is in that privileged position. That is why we chose Peter McVerry Trust as our partner of choice three years ago. We are very grateful to our customers for their support as we continue to help raise awareness and funds for this much-needed cause through our social community and beyond.”
Nell Ward, Corporate Fundraising Manager, Peter McVerry Trust;
“Just Eat reach so many through its social channels as a respected brand – we were delighted with the idea that Just Eat would share this special video to its community highlighting the work that we do to help raise awareness on World Homeless Day. While funds are important, awareness is central to that and we are delighted to work with Just Eat this year to help ensure that homelessness remains at the top of the agenda in Ireland.”
