On the #LongestDay, take the time to do something for people who are homeless
The Dublin Simon Community’s #LongestDay is an annual day of action on June 21st. The longest day of the year, with the most hours of sunlight for many, is a day of possibility and activity. People take time to enjoy the longer day with friends and family; doing simple and everyday things that some may take for granted.
However, when you’re trapped in homelessness with no place to call home, you are forced to go without the simplest comforts and the days can be isolating, endless and relentless; you are living minute to minute and every day can seem like the #LongestDay of the year.
How You Can Help
This June 21st we are organising a day of action and encouraging people to take the time out of their day to make a donation or organise a summer party or an event of your choice. Taking the time to do something will go towards Dublin Simon Community’s life saving resources.
Fifty years ago, Simon began with a friendly face and a hot cup of soup. Because of people like you believing in us, today we provide a range of services, helping people at every step along their journey home.
Throughout the #LongestDay Dublin Simon Community will have a day of online activity, where we will share testimonials from clients on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to illustrate the lonely and isolating nature of being homeless or at risk. Each quote will be shared with the hashtag #LongestDay. Please support the campaign by liking our content online and sharing it with your friends and family!
