Help FairRent_ raise funds for the Irish charities battling homelessness

By Aoife Lawless

The housing crisis in Ireland has long been an issue for many people. The inflation of rent being a primary issue for many, so the lovely people at FairRent_ want to do something about it.

Across the month of September, FairRent_ will be posting engaging, thought provoking content from some well known and some not so well-known Irish faces. The goal of this project is to raise much needed funding for Focus Ireland and to begin a conversation where we give voices back to the people of Ireland, so that accommodation is no longer a luxury, but a basic right.

The campaign is hosting a number of events throughout September so people can get involved and help them raise funds for this super worthy cause.

FairRent_ will stick to a 3-day posting schedule each week focusing on key themes across each day.

Rewind Wednesdays – This will look at Ireland past and present, highlighting the issues that our Irish ancestors faced and how relevant they still are today.

Saucy Saturdays – A collaboration with some well-known Irish faces and asked them to express their feelings towards the current housing crisis in whatever format they felt comfortable.

Snippet Sundays – Emily Mullen, from District magazine, has delved into a long form editorial with interviews with everyday Irish people to share their stories. Each Sunday there will be a small snippet of the longer form piece for you to then go and read the final version on site.

If you want to take part you can follow them on Instagram , where a 3 day schedule of events will be posted weekly across September. You can also contribute by buying some of their locally embroidered high quality hoodies and jumpers available on their website .
