Homelessness rates in Ireland are higher than ever, and charities such as Focus Ireland are struggling to fundraise with over 1,500 children and their families are living in B&B’s and hotels.
So when we heard about Focus Ireland's brilliant campaign we had to get involved...
Their #InTheShadows campaign is asking the public to do the following:
1. Take a shadow selfie.
2. Text "Shine" to 50300 to donate €4 to Focus Ireland.
3. Post it to Twittter or Facebook, nominating 3 friends to do the same.

#InTheShadows exists to show solidarity for people living in the shadows and raise vital funds to combat family homelessness.
On Shine a Light Night 2015, 16 October each donated #InTheShadows selfie will be projected onto Christchurch Cathedral.
So, we're calling on all our readers to get involved by sending us their shadow selfie and donating €4 to Focus Ireland today.
Let it be your good deed for the day!
