Keep Frank in His House!
The Billion Euro House has been built entirely from generous donations, voluntary contributions of material and help, and the round the clock application of Frank Buckley. Within the space of a short number of weeks, the Billion Euro House has made international headlines as the extraordinary symbolism of what Frank has created captures the imagination of millions around a world watching the headlines of the Eurozone crisis play out. Frank spends his days and evenings juggling tours of school children with phone interviews on radio ad TV stations around the world – and yet remains in deep negative equity without any source of income other than basic unemployment assistance.
Frank remains 100% committed to the Billion Euro House project, which has taken on a new direction as it captures attention and stimulates debate around the fate of the Euro. He is calling on creative minds around the world to find ways to keep the project going and hopefully expanding, ideally to a tour of European cities. Who is the sponsor with the vision and courage to associate with one of the most viral artistic statements since the fall of the Celtic Tiger and share extraordinary international coverage? One video alone attracted more than a third of a million views within 3 weeks and even reached the front page of Yahoo! How can Frank harness the huge world-wide interest to gather enough money to buy a cup of tea, pay the electricity bill and buy telephone credit, let alone turn his life around, get out of negative equity and build a family home (out of more traditional materials!) Please e-mail Frank with any suggestions you might have or show your support and make a donation, it will be hugely appreciated.
All contributions – even the smallest – are most gratefully received and will go directly to support Frank, his family, the Billion Euro House and his charitable project for recovering addicts at the Haven Retreat Centre. Your contribution and personal message to Frank are optionally recorded on this page with every donation. Thank you, and may money never become your enemy.
