Ciao! I'm John, I'm studying Commerce with Italian in UCD. Welcome to my 100minds profile page! It is a privilege to be selected to be a part of this year's team. Thank you for taking the time to look at my profile. Let me tell you what it's all about:

100minds is one of the most innovative non-profit organisations in operation in Ireland today. It involves 100 of Ireland's best and brightest students collaborating to raise €100,000 collectively for children in need. The team of 2013 did such an incredible job, (€138,000!) that this year there are 150 students aiming to raise €150,000. With your help we can achieve this and hopefully even eclipse last year's figure! The two fantastic charities for which we are fundraising are both children's charities and absolute worthy causes; Blossom Ireland and Barnardos Ireland. Blossom Ireland works to help children with intellectual disabilities and provides therapy led after school activities and camps. Barnardos works to help disadvantaged children and their families.

As Herbert Hoover, 31st President of the USA, once said "Children are our most valuable resource". And so we need to protect this resource by providing support in whatever way we can.

All news and updates for events will appear here so keep your eyes peeled. Please donate as much or as little as you feel by clicking the "DONATE NOW" button. It could not be more simple!

The best thing about 100minds is the transparency of the operation. Any and all monies donated go DIRECTLY to the two charities, 100minds doesn't touch a cent. So GET DONATING and help out these two brilliant organisations!
