Parents and kids are being asked to buy a very special present for their teacher this Christmas-a helping hand to those most in need.

Crosscare helps over 70,000 people in Dublin every year-including the homeless, young children in care and people needing help to just put food on the table. This year-Crosscare are inviting parents to log on to their website and make a donation that will help the most needy in Dublin at this very difficult time and in return kids can print off a specially designed “Thank you Teacher” certificate to show their teacher their appreciation.

Parents can log on from today at  and download this extra special gift for teachers.
