Hi There, and welcome to my 100minds Profile page. First of all I would like to thank you for taking the time to visit.
My name is Ruth Lehane and I am a third year student in Computer Science and Business in Trinity. After seeing the success and the positive impact that 100minds had in its first year I was inspired to be a part of the team. I am honoured to say that I am now a participant of this years 2014/2015 100minds.
100minds is a unique and innovative way to fundraise. It is a volunteer-run, non-profit organisation, to unite students from all over Ireland, in a common goal of raising €150,000 for its chosen partners this year Barnardos and Blossom Ireland.
Barnardos and Blossom Ireland are both remarkable charities who change the lives of children in our Irish community. Barnardos work with vulnerable children and their families in Ireland and campaign for the rights of all children. Blossom Ireland works with children with intellectual disabilities and their families towards filling the gap between the available public services and the actual needs of the child. These are two inspirational charities, which I am both excited and humbled to be given the opportunity to help raise much needed funds for children in need in our community. For more information on these deserving charities please visit http://www.100minds.org/blossom-barnardosor their websites http://www.blossomireland.ie and http://www.barnardos.ie/
I am so grateful to have this fantastic opportunity to be a part of 100minds 2014/2015. I want to do something worthwhile and use all the skills and talents I have learnt in both school and college to have a positive impact in a real life way. For this I need your help. I will be hosting an event and will keep you updated on that but to start I need your help to raise much needed funds.Complete transparency of funds is core to the 100minds campaign, so I ensure you that every cent raised will directly go into the accounts of these two wonderful charities.
Any donations big or small will have a positive impact on these childrens lives here in Ireland today so please give what you can.
Please click the ‘Donate Now’ red button located on the top right hand side to help make a practical difference.
I am excited and nervous at the same time to reach my €1000 goal and yet am eager if possible to surpass it. I will be updating this page as I go along with my successes and failures so please feel free to join me on this journey. My email is email@example.com so feel free to contact me if you are willing to help or want to give any feedback.
Thank you for all your support now and to come, Ruth
