Thanks so much for visiting my 100minds online profile!
My name is Jade and I am a third year Biological and Biomedical Science student in Maynooth University. I am absolutely delighted to be part of the 100minds team this year!
What is 100minds you ask? Well, 100minds is a programme that challenges students from across the country to each raise €1000 euro for a chosen charity! This year that charity is Childline! Collectively as a group the aim is to raise €1,000,000 and hopefully more, for this extremely worthy organization!
Childline is one of Ireland's longest running charities. Helping to empower, support and protect vulnerable young people in our communities! Without Childline, who would have been there to answer 460,000 calls from children last year? Who would have listened to the 300 children who contacted the service at urgent risk of suicide; or the 1,208 children who made contact with Childline on Christmas day? The numbers speak for themselves- Childline is an essential service for the children and young people of Ireland. https://www.100minds.org/impact
No donation is to big or too small, and every single cent raised through online donations and fundraising projects that I will run over the next few months will go straight into Childlines bank account!
As of now I am currently brainstorming event ideas that will help me reach my €1000 euro target! I will keep you all updated here on my 100minds profile and my facebook page about my progress and the overall progress of 100minds!
