Hi! I'm Bhanavi Kinger a first year Medicine Student at University College Dublin.
Rewind to Christmas 2014: we remember celebrating with our families and friends, surrounded by happiness and joy. Yet for over 1000 children, Childline was the only organisation there for them. Listening to around 600,000 voices a year of children who are in distress, Childline is supporting the children who need it the most.
Last year, Childline had to face a major setback and was close to terminating their 24 hour service due to a lack of funding. However, together, 100minds, you and I are going to change that. Alongside several other students, we are raising at least 1000 euros each for Childline and for the children of Ireland.
I will be doing a variety of activities to raise the money. From a range of charity challenges to bake sales. The bake sale was a huge success, helping me raise a significant amount for Childline. I am also planning on taking 100minds to Bahrain where I hope to organize a non-uniform day for the students of the British School of Bahrain.
