I am really excited to be part of the 100minds team this year. It's a real privilege to be participating in the attempt to break Irish fundraising history. The goal is to raise €1,000,000 for Childline, who are such a deserving charity. Childline provides a 24/7 listening service for children that is invaluable, and it needs our constant support.
My individual goal is to raise €1,000, and I would be so appreciative if you could help me reach this target by donating what you can. I will keep you guys posted on any fundraising events I have planned and I will update you on my progress over the coming months!

Here is a quick update on my progress:
I am in the process of organising a table quiz as my main fundraising event for 100minds. I plan to host it in March, in my hometown of Ballymote, Co. Sigo. I plan to host a raffle also, and am working on obtaining sponsored prizes from local businesses.
As my table quiz is going to be in a pub at night, I felt it may exclude some younger people of school-going age that would like to contribute to the cause. After all, it is young people of all ages that utilise the vital services Childline provides. For this reason, I have got my old secondary school on board. They have agreed to host a non-uniform day on 8th April, as this is the last week, it will be the final push to smash the fundraising target!
I will provide more details on the date and time of my table quiz very soon, and any online donations would also be greatly appreciated :)
