You can’t get much more ‘Spirit of Christmas’ than supporting Irish business while donating to a worthy cause. The businesses below are supporting Irish charities this Christmas, and we are supporting them for doing it. Happy Christmas everyone. 


Dusty Boy Designs, Angela Scanlon and Focus Ireland

Angela Scanlon and Dusty Boy have collaborated and designed this one-off print where 100% of the profits go to Focus Ireland. By buying this print, you have helped home a child this Christmas.

It’s easy to forget how lucky we are sometimes, the “Thank you” print is a simple message to remind us to be grateful for all we have and show kindness to those less fortunate.

Angela told us, “Homeless little boys and girls all across Ireland only want one thing from Christmas; a safe warm bed that they can call their own. Somewhere to hang a stocking so that Santa can find them too.”

*NEWS* After last years overwhelming response to our charity print, I am so happy to have collaborated again with my pals @dustyboydesigns to design another beautiful print to raise money for homeless children across the country. In 2018 there are more than 3,000 children who have no home to sleep in this Christmas… we created the print “thanks a million” as a reminder to be grateful for all we have & to show kindness to those less fortunate. By buying this print, you will have helped home a child this Christmas & it also means you will be gifting twice ?? The A5 print costs €15 & ?% of the profits go directly to Focus Ireland. You can buy via the link in our bio NOW?? OR exclusively in store from our friends @shopfolkster in Dundrum, Temple Bar & Kilkenny (from Wednesday December 11th) ? x #thanksamillion #givingback
