My name is Keanu Fischell and I am a final year student in University College Dublin studying Commerce with a focus in digital marketing and sales. I am delighted to be part of this year’s 100minds team.
100minds is a social enterprise founded in 2013, that brings together some of Ireland’s top college students and connects them with one cause to achieve big goals in a short space of time.
This year 100minds have partnered with Temple Street Children’s Hospital to raise €100,000 by 16th February 2017. My personal goal is to raise a €1,000 through various fundraising efforts which will enable Temple Street to build a vital classroom in the hospital to allow a child to continue learning whilst in care.
I am striving to exceed the target set out as every single extra euro gained for Temple Street will go a long way impacting a child’s life. Every donation is greatly appreciated. Your kindness and generosity will not go unnoticed as no donation is too small or too big! I'd be so grateful as would the many children who will genuinely benefit from your assistance. It takes less than 30 seconds to contribute and is as simple as clicking the "Donate Now" button above. See the difference your contribution makes at http://www.templestreet.ie/.
I will keep you updated on my progress on the ‘Updates’ section of this page. Alternatively, you can visit my Facebook or LinkedIn page to follow my updates.
If you have any questions, suggestions, ideas, or would like to simply get involved with me on this adventure, please get in touch.
How can I push myself to grow outside my comfort zone and whilst contributing to Temple Street and others around me?
With a passion for digital marketing, I've set myself the challenge of helping a local business build up their web presence.
Having recently completed my first mock website (Check it out - www.meltingmango.com), I thought 100minds would be the perfect platform to leverage what I know, to add value to a local SMB and the children at Temple Street at the same time.
How It Started? I began walking door-to-door, both physical and virtually (Street View) and found a local picture framing shop with no website.
After meeting the business owner, I was able to learn why the business hadn't focused their efforts online and the problems they faced in the past. Our meeting was highly beneficial for me to gain a better understanding of their business, what they're goals are, and what makes them unique. As a result of our meeting, we agreed to partner and I'm excited to help get their web presence up and running.
