People to sleep in gardens tonight to highlight Ireland's homeless crisis

People across the country will be sleeping in their gardens tonight to "shine a light" on Ireland's homeless crisis. 

It's the seventh year of Shine a Light night, a charity initiative which aims to raise vital funds for people experiencing homelessness. 

So far, €814,389 has been raised.  

Run by Focus Ireland and Bord Gáis Ireland, participants come together virtually tonight from their sleep-out locations to stand in solidarity with homeless people. 

According to Focus Ireland, 930 families are currently homeless, 2,129 of whom are children.
