The company behind taxi booking app eCab Dublin has pledged to raise much needed funds for the homeless community this Christmas.
The campaign, titled Spare a Thought, will see eCab donating ?10 to Dublin Simon Community when anyone who downloads the eCab App in December, books a taxi and enter the SIMON promotional code.
Taxi drivers from VIP Taxis, NRC and Xpert Taxis will also wear Dublin Simon Santa hats during the campaign to raise awareness of the problem of homelessness.
According to Dublin Simon Community currently there are over 2,300 adults and in excess of 1,400 children in emergency accommodation in the Dublin region alone.
Kelly Crowley, fundraising manager at Dublin Simon Community, said: On behalf of Dublin Simon Community we would like to thank eCab and their customers for their support.
As we continue to see increasing numbers of people, families and children coming to our doors for help, your support will make a vital difference and enable them to move to a safe and secure place they can call home.
Vinny Kearns, spokesperson for the eCab Dublin Alliance, said: eCab Dublin wants to remind people that Christmas is a time for giving to those who need it most and this campaign means it wont cost them anything more than a selfless thought.
?10 might not seem like a lot but it could make all the difference to someone this Christmas.
