Christmas Craic Kaizen Recruitment

Hello and Welcome!

Thank you so much for your participation in our brand-new campaign: Christmas Craic for Dublin Simon Community!

This year has been a year like no other. Due to the ongoing pandemic and the resulting economic crisis, there has been an unprecedented increase in demand on our services from those in need of support. With job losses and major drops in income, not to mention people falling ill and others having to care for them, the pandemic has turned the housing crisis into a full-blown emergency.

As roughly 50% of our frontline services are funded through our fundraising efforts, support from organisations and individuals like yourself has never been more important. Your support this winter will help ensure that those who rely on our vital services will be supported through the Christmas season and into 2021.

As a participant in this new, virtual campaign, we’ll be in touch weekly to give insights and context around how your support is impacting Dublin Simon. We have set up your very own JustGiving page here.

With over 24 different services across Dublin Simon, we’ll try to give you a snapshot of what our work does and how supporters like you fit into it.

In the meantime, if you’d like any further information on our work, please feel free to have a look at our 2019 Annual Review, released in September this year. As well, please don’t hesitate to get in touch at

That’s all for now! Thanks again for your participation in this year’s Christmas fundraising – we’re really looking forward to working with you and the Kaizen Recruitment team.

All the best,

Dublin Simon Community Corporate Partnerships Team

Welcome to Dublin Simon’s Christmas Craic! 

  We have started to settle into the campaign and Kaizen Recruitments involvement in our Christmas initiative, a rollercoaster of fundraising activities, competition and wholehearted engagement in helping us support those who are most vulnerable to the pandemic. Christmas will be very different to ever before, however, we have that covered to ensure you can still have some craic during this festive season.

We wanted to show you the impact your support will be making by giving a virtual tour of our Detox Services hearing from one of our very own clients. Their story is why we do it and why we will keep doing it, their spirit and resilience is testament to the support that you are a part of.

In this week we see you and the team taking part and getting ready for your upcoming Fundraisers. We want to see photos and videos of you bringing that team spirit together for your fundraising challenges ahead, so go forth and may the craic be with you all!

For any information or queries in the meantime you can contact me on 086 013 7578 or email at

We are very excited to work with you all on this, so let’s all have the craic this Christmas!
