Welcome to my 100 minds page, i'm glad to be one of the many chosen to help raise funds for Temple Street Children's University Hospital with one important goal in mind: to help save the lives of critically ill children in Ireland, now and for many generations to come.
Th foundation raises as much funds as possible to help create a peace of mind for the children and their families, insuring that they get the future that they truly deserve. With the help of its incredible supporters it has enabled them to buy state of the art equipment, fund research and put life back into the wards.
So far, Temple Street Foundation has raised 50 million euro to help tackle this ultimate goal. Sadly, the struggle seems to be continuous due to many of the hospitals sickest children depending on machines donated by donors to stay alive.
The special goal and the purpose for this fundraiser is to fund a new satellite classroom for St. Gabriel's Ward. This ward specialises in neurosurgery and craniofacial surgery and also those with both general surgical and medical conditions. Many of the children in this ward are seriously ill, have had major neurosurgery and require round-the-clock care. The creation of these satellite classrooms will have a hugely positive impact on the children in it's care.
By donating, your money goes towards creating a quiet learning space for those in recovering from a major brain surgery, allowing teachers, doctors, nurses and parents to monitor a child's progress and work together in their path towards recovery, providing a classroom to allow the child to attend longer school sessions during their recovery, aiding the children's confidence growth and sense of normality after surgery and help them return quickly to a learning environment and creating a wheelchair friendly classroom with high-tech equipment with lessons tailored to each child's unique post-surgery needs.
So, with your help we can make a difference to these children, not only with providing them with a chance but also a message, that the smallest things can make a difference.
My name is Hana, I am an 18 year old, first year student in the Dublin Institute of Technology. I am studying Law with a non-law module in Early Childcare Education/ Psychology and human development. This cause is incredibly dear to my heart and is extremely important to my family and I. With this in mind, it is in my best interest to make sure every child who has to overcome this barrier is facilitated and is well looked after.
I will try my best to raise as much funds as possible to help these children receive the facilities they deserve.

Today was the official day that I've started my plan of action. I went to my secondary school, asking for support and help with my journey in raising the funds. I thought that by starting in my own local community it would become a platform in creating a wider awareness and bigger ideas.
I talked with the deputy principal, asking her for support and guidance. She referred me to a teacher in the school who helps with organising fundraisers for charities. I was fortunate enough to have full support of the school, something that I am extremely grateful of.
The teacher, her students and I are going to hopefully work together to raise funds for this cause. I'm glad to have such an eager group to help.
I hope to go into other schools nearby and ask for their support and help as well. Overall, it's been a positive and uplifting experience so far.
