Project Hello

Found this on the ACT Responsible Website which has loads of excellent Ad’s for various projects but this one jumped out at me.

This is their Mission

Project Hello aims to build awareness of the world’s growing homeless problem. To create discussion and a platform for solutions. To give homeless individuals a name, and in the process, encourage others to treat them with dignity, respect, and compassion. To use our mass communication and problem-solving skills for the forces of good. And to inspire and assist others in creating more selfless, random acts of kindness.

Really cool project so check it out at

Govt ‘subsidising problems rather than solving them’

Fine Gael leader Enda Kenny has accused the Government of using the Budget to deal with the incompetence of the past rather than planning for the future.

Speaking in the Dáil this morning, Mr Kenny said the Taoiseach and his ministers are simply subsidising problems rather than solving them.

He said the Government had spend the last 10 years wasting billions of euro in public money, as well as squandering opportunities to make real improvements to people’s lives.

Mr Kenny also accused the Government of failing to use the Budget to deal with Ireland’s energy needs and problems and of failing to introduce any measures to tackle homelessness.
