Hi everyone -

Thank you for taking the time to check out my 100minds profile. I feel very privileged to have been chosen this year as one of 150 students to partake in the 100minds challenge.

What is 100minds? It is a non-profit organisation that brings together 150 of Ireland's best and brightest students with the objective of raising €150,000 for two fantastic Irish children's charities - Bernardos and Blossom Ireland. Last year, the target of €100,000 was smashed and a staggering €138,000 was raised for Temple Street Children's Hospital. This year, with your help, I hope to do the same by raising my targeted amount of €1,000, if not more.

100minds inspires, educates and has a major impact on children across Ireland. Every cent that is raised goes directly to the bank accounts of our partner charities. To read more about them please click on the link below: http://www.100minds.org/blossom-barnardos

Over the next 100 days, I am organising one large event and several smaller ones, and also donating all income I earn from babysitting directly to my 100minds profile. I will be using my profile as a blog with updates on what I am doing and when, so please keep an eye out. Every single cent donated will be hugely appreciated and will make a difference to so many children.

If you would like to get in touch with any tips or queries, I'd love to hear them - holly.tilson@ucdconnect.ie


Thank you!
