You can wrap your whole header in the anchor tag. that is allowed in html5.

However, you have some badly constructed html including unclosed tags and multiple ids of the same name. this will cause problems for you. you should try to clean up the html

<a href="http://www.ias.ie/?page_id=631">
	<div class="background-image"></div>
	<div id="header-top-container">
		... othe markup in here ...
	</div>
</a>

I would have thought you only wanted the Donate button to link to the page. If that's what you want, then remove the button from the background image and create an image just for the button. Then just wrap that image in an A tag and position it absolutely using CSS:

<a id="donateButton" href="/?page_id=631"><img src="button.png"></a>

#donateButton { display:block; height: 60px; width: 160px; position:absolute; left: 600px; top: 30px; }
