100minds was founded and run by Declan Egan, a former UCD student from its inception in 2013 until June 2016 when he handed it over to Temple Street Foundation. 100minds is a social enterprise project that brings Irish college students from all across the country together, connecting them with one cause to achieve big goals in a short space of time. So far, 100minds has raised close to €1 million for charity and this has made a considerable difference for those who it has been raised for.
I decided to get involved with the 100minds campaign in order to fundraise for the children at Temple Street Children's Hospital. My goal is to raise a minimum of €1000! This money will be used to build a new satellite classroom in the St.Gabriel's Ward in the hospital. This will make it possible for the children to get an education at the hospital whilst they are being treated. The children can be in treatment for a long duration of time, forcing them out of education. This classroom will help mitigate this problem, by making it possible for them to learn.
In order to raise the funds, I will be hosting several events throughout the campaign, which I will be advertising on this page and across social media platforms! Any donations no matter how big or small are greatly appreciated!
