“For us, this is more than just a music video. Like the song itself, we wanted to reach out to as many people as possible, people who have been less fortunate in life, giving them a platform to tell their stories. On researching the ideas for the video, we came across so many charities, and while they are all doing such great work, we were immediately inspired by A Sense Of Home and wanted to show support and build awareness. This organization offered a real solution that could be rolled out across the world, particularly in Ireland where this problem is so prevalent. Share it wide and share it proud with arms open.” Danny, Mark & Glen, The Script
