Hi everyone and thanks for visiting my 100minds page! My name is Leigh Sherling and I'm currently a 3rd year student studying Business in Applied Entrepreneurship in IADT in Dun Laoghaire.
100minds is a social enterprise that aims at supporting children's charities in Ireland and making a substantial difference within these charities. This year the charity is ISPCC Childline and the goal for 100minds is to achieve €1,000,000! Childline is an excellent charity that provides a 24 hour service for children nationwide.
Childline announced last year the possible closure of there night phone service due to lack of funding. It is due to this that immediate action is needed in ensuring the night service stays in operation and any donation, no matter how big or small, will make a difference! I decided to join the 100minds team as I feel Childline is an incredible cause and I feel positive about the challenge!
Each participant in 100minds will organise fundraising projects and I intend on keeping updated blogs on my ideas and progress. I would like to thank everyone in advance and online donations are greatly appreciated and 100% of the money donated goes directly to Childline!
Hitting the ground running!

So firstly I'd like to say a big thank you to everyone who has given all the generous donations, it really is a great cause and every single cent is much appreciated!
My first event took place last week and to say it went well is a bit of an understatement! I teamed up with Cormac Herlihy and together we organised a pub quiz and raffle for our classmates and close friends and families in Bakers Corner, Dun Laoghaire. We had such a good turn out and spirits were high on the night which made the whole event even more enjoyable!
Together we raised €460, €230 each, which we felt was an excellent result for us to begin to smash our targets!
But it doesnt end for me there! Im extremely proud to announce on April 2nd I will be holding another quiz with friends and family in O'Malleys pub, Cornamona, County Galway! This event will be in my home town in Galway which makes it especially special for me and Im expecting to organise a brilliant night in Aid of ISPCC Childline!
I intend on keeping eveyone updated on my progress and hopefully I'll get the opportunity to organise more events for ISPCC Childline before our deadline in April.
