Celebrate and Donate to Depaul!
Do you have a special occasion coming up and feel like you've got everything you need?
Then why not do something amazing and ask family and friends to make a donation instead of buying you a birthday, wedding, or Christmas present?
Your amazing decision will support Depaul's work with young homeless people who often arrive at our projects with nothing. Your donations will help us to provide a safe and supportive place for them to stay and the help they need to progress beyond homelessness.
Cherry and James Get Married!
One fantasic couple who Gave Up their Gifts to help young homeless people were Cherry and James.
The couple raised an incredible £3,000 for Depaul by asking for donations instead of presents at their wedding. The couple specifically asked for their donation to be used for a Depaul scheme called 'Roo's Fund' which helps young homeless people who live in our projects to purchase essential items like warm clothing, text books, and smart clothes for job interviews.
Cherry comments on the couple's generous decision:
“James and I wanted young people who have not had the opportunities and support we have had to benefit from our wedding celebration. Having an online fundraising page meant we could also let our family and friends know about the great work Depaul is doing to make a real difference to the lives of homeless young people. We were delighted by the response.”
