Rick O'Shea

Fundraising For Peter McVerry Trust
Latest Update !!

The ROSBC Xmas Appeal for charity - this year for the Peter McVerry Trust.

Story

My name is Rick O'Shea. I'm a broadcaster with RTE and, amongst the many things I do outside my work, I run Ireland's largest book club with over 28,000 members - The Rick O'Shea Book Club:

https://www.facebook.com/groups/therickosheabookclub/

This is year two of our annual Xmas appeal in the Rick O'Shea Book Club.

Last year we raised a little over €51,000 for the work in the field of homelessness of The Peter McVerry Trust - that was in 51 days.

Ireland's homelessness crisis hasn't gotten any better in the intervening 12 months, it has gotten worse.

This year I want us to raise more so here's what you can do:

My ask is that you donate the price of an average second hand book - €5.

If you can donate more please, please do (last year we had people donating 10, 20, 100, 500 even one extraordinary donation of €5,000!)

We start today, November 11th, and close the appeal on New Year's Eve.

If you have gotten any joy or in any way loved the Book Club in the last year, show your appreciation for the wonderful book-loving community we have created and help ease Ireland's homelessness crisis at the same time.

Thanks,

R x
