Hey guys! Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my profile. Along with over a 1000 other fantastic and ambitious students, I am proud to say I will be participating in 100minds this year. The aim for 2015-16 is to collectively raise €1,000,000 for this years very deserving charity, Childline. Each student, including myself, has the task of raising €1,000 which we hope to surpass. The more money for this amazing organisation, the better!!
Childline is run by ISPCC and is an anonymous, 24/7 service for children and teenagers. The volunteers who work for Childline are there to support, protect and listen to children who face all sorts of problems. Last year Childline nearly had their overnight services closed due to lack of funding and an emergency appeal was launched. This year 100minds has teamed up with Childline to prevent the need for another emergency appeal. €1,000,000 for Childline would mean 100,000 extra calls can be answered this year.
To try and out do my €1,000 target, I have teamed up with another 100minds participant, Eoin Delaney. We want to raise as much money as we possibly can over the next few months. The more money we raise, the more children we help. Please donate anything you can to this profile or keep an eye out for events we will be organizing over the coming months and try and attend and have great fun for a great cause.
Myself and Eoin Delaney decided we wanted to use 100minds to our full advantage and use the guidance we were offered to make something we are both very passionate about out of nothing. We sat and thought hard and bounced ideas until we came up with the concept of PLT!
Myself and Eoin truly are music lovers. With Dublin's nightlife scene booming at the moment, we discovered there is a niche in the market for a website providing Dublin's clubbers with a weekly venue and gig guide, a 'Monthly Top Ten Tracks' list, and maybe someday a record label and ticket sales website selling tickets for events all over the country including our own. Essentially, an online music magazine! 🎶
This is where PLT (Peace, Love & Techno) was found. We decided to launch PLT with our 100 minds event using a festival theme and involving some of Dublin's major, most successful, promoters including Bedlam, Sense, Strictly Deep and Room19. We have 3 bands and 23 djs playing on the night with other live entertainment!
After putting in all the hard work over the last few weeks, we realised we definitely want to go down this path and build up PLT as a successful brand and branch out to everything we can really!!
We will definitely be holding more charity fundraisers in the future through PLT when we build our following✌🏼️
