Thank you for checking out my 100 minds profile! My name is Aoife Bolger, I am a 21 year old Galway girl and am in my final year studying Commerce here. This year I am specialising in marketing for my degree and have been lucky enough to be given the opportunity to partake in this year's 100 minds project.
Since hearing about the 100 minds project last year, I instantly had my sights set on being involved in 2016/17. It is a social enterprise project, founded in 2013, that brings together some of Ireland's top college students, and connects them with one cause to achieve a huge goal in a relatively short space of time. Each of the 100 students involved is given a target of €1000 to raise, collectively raising €100,000+.
This year, 100 minds has partnered with Temple St. Children's Hospital, and every cent donated to my fundraising activities will go towards building a new satellite classroom at the St. Gabriel's ward in the hospital. The aim being that all children, burdened with illness, have the opportunity to reach their full potential and have a sense of normality about their days in the hospital.
I'm looking forward to raising as much as I can through a number of different fundraising events, and any donations here on my page would be greatly appreciated. By clicking the 'Donate Now' button on the top right hand corner of the screen, you can help me raise my goal and be a part of the project to help the children at Temple Street too!
