Hello all,

Here is a video that shows some of the kids and the families you will be helping out with your donations. Please take a look.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AZWvBHB7LLo

When I learnt of the 100minds project it really appealed to me. I learnt about it when I read an article in bed on Score.ie describing the initiative. The entrepreneurial, strategic and management aspects grabbed my attention immediately.

There was no other projects in college like it. I am also studying History, Politics and International Relations which, as you can imagine, is dominated by theory and reading. The practical go out and get it done aspect was something that I felt suited me.

Straight away I was dreaming up outrageous ideas and wondering how I would go about pulling them off. How am I going to go about making my project a success? I was up for about 2 and a half hours with different ideas running through my head. It was already the most compelling aspect of the entirety of my college life. It was for a fantastic cause there's no way I wasn't getting involved. I am delighted I did. It has really reinforced my desire to get involved in the business world when I finish my studies.

Doing this project for the kids and families of Temple street is what's compelling me to make every cent I can with my project. Having my own trouble with my health in the past, I understand how crucial every bit of this money is for those families and kids. The best facilities and equipment makes a great deal of difference when you're sick.

The concept of mentors guiding you throughout the fundraising is brilliant. The mentors and support system in place is a brilliant idea and another reason I applied.

The skills I want to take from this fundraising project is communication and project management. I have always had ideas and this project was a really good way of learning how to bring projects to life. This is done through communication, cooperation and strategy. By the end of this project I will have learned a great deal more about this through setting up and running a project.

You will be informed about my fundraising events in the updates section over the coming weeks and months.

Here is the breakdown of how the money will be spent, if we achieve our goal of €100,000.

€60,000 will be spent on Machine and Equipment Purchases.

€27,000 will be spent on the Every Child Deserves A Childhood project.

€13,000 will be spent on Supporting The Family.

It's a fantastic cause and I hope to exceed the target that was set for me, however I can only do this with your help. Every donation will be really appreciated. The Deadline isn't too far away so please don't put off donating for too long. Whatever it may be, One euro, two euro or twenty, it all makes a huge difference for the children and their families.

Even the likes of Gaz from Geordie Shore are doing their bit to help out.
