My name is Ellen Bailey and I'm in my final year of the AVEA degree in DIT.
Why did I sign up? I decide to sign up this year, as I saw the amazing impact and awareness the 100minds participants and their mentors brought to the benefiting charity in year one, 2013 and unfortunately, last year I missed out on the registration date by one day.
Thankfully, I was fortunate enough to be chosen for this years 100minds campaign!
2016's 100minds charity partner is Childline; Childline is a fantastic cause to fundraise for, it is in place to protect our nations future voice by giving the children of Ireland a safe and comforting environment to share their issues and voice their concerns.
By hopefully raising my share of the €1,000,000 target, an additional 100,000 calls, texts and web chats will be answered by Childline.
So thank you from Childline, 100minds and myself for your incredible donation,
