Welcome and thank you for visiting my 100 minds profile!
I'm a second year Commerce student in UCD, I'm living in Ireland long term and I'm originally from Madrid, Spain. I've always been interested in giving and helping, as I think about it from a responsibility perspective; the more you can offer, the more responsible you must be with those in need.
After attending a presentation about 100minds, I was amazed by last year's results and the positive impact it had on the community, as well as captivated by the project itself. I decided it was something I wanted to get involved in and I'm very glad I was given the chance to participate in the 2014/15 team.
100minds consists of a brilliant initiative, which gathers 150 students and gives them the opportunity to make a big contribution to society. The aim is fundraising €150,000 collectively for Barnardos (www.barnardos.ie) and Blossom Ireland (www.blossomireland.ie) two wonderful children’s charities. Both of them work hard in making a difference to the lives of many children, making these charities a precious intangible social asset.
My plan is to fundraise my at least €1,000 using my communication and organisation skills. I hope to organise a series of events through the use of extensive networking and detailed planning over the following weeks. I will keep you updated about my progress and events on this page.
I want to clarify that the donation process is simple and completely transparent; this is one of the many things that makes 100minds unique! The donation goes directly from the donor to Barnados' and Blossom Ireland's accounts. Every minimal help from you makes a huge difference! Think about it in this way, the ocean is made up of billions of water droplets.
Donating is easy! Just click the red ‘Donate Now’ button on the top right hand corner of your screen. Leave your name along with your donation and I will message you thanking you personally. Feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks in advance for your support and congratulations because just the fact that you are reading this, demonstrates that you are an actively caring person!
New Year, New Energy!

I'm very happy to say that important progress is being made! I've been talking to many closely related contacts and they have proven to be very supporting and interested in getting involved in the 100minds initiative.
The most assured one being a Tapas & Sangría night in 4 weeks time, which I will organise with a great quality Spanish restaurant in town; I have ordered their food and drinks many times before for dinners with family and friends.
I will post another update giving you more information about this, early this coming week.
All the best!

I'm very happy to say Tapas Night is up and running with my friends and hosts Valencia - Paella & Tapas.
The event is on Friday 6th of February from 19:00 to 23:00. The event's promotion is going great and I will further continue to promote in different groups on Facebook. I'm promoting it in both English and Spanish and I designed both the poster and flyer myself.
There's also a raffle with a Litre of Sangría and 3 Tapas as a Prize.
