Welcome to my 100minds fundraising profile. My name is Anna Hickey and I am a studying a masters degree in Marketing at UCD Michael Smurfit Business School. I am delighted to be chosen as a participant of such a wonderful fundraising campaign. I will use this virtual place to keep you updated on my progress throughout my 100 days of fundraising.
What is 100minds?
100minds is a fundraising campaign where 100 students are chosen to raise €1,000 each over the course of 100 days. This will result in over €100, 000 being raised! This year the funds are going to the Temple Street Foundation to enable Temple Street Children's University Hospital to continue to provide world class care to Ireland's sickest children. The money raised will go towards purchasing vital life-saving equipment, as well as funding sibling camps for brothers and sisters of sick children in the hospital.
Every donation big or small would make a huge difference and would be very much appreciated. If you would like to donate please click the “DONATE NOW” button.
Thank you for taking the time to visit my profile. I am very excited to share all of my fundraising ideas with you very soon!

Car Boot Sale 3rd December
Posted: almost 3 years ago
With the help of family and friends I accumulated a wide variety of items to sell at a car boot sale in Callan, Co. Kilkenny on 3rd December 2017. I had never sold anything at one of these events so I didn't know what to expect. However, I collected €434 in total! This is a great start to my campaign. Thanks to all who helped on the day and who kindly donated items to be sold.

Pub Quiz Success
Posted: over 2 years ago
On the 25th January at 7.30pm a night of questions, riddles, raffles and magic was held in Doyles Pub, College Street, Dublin. MC/magician Colm Dawson kicked things off with the first of many quiz question rounds. 25 teams of 4 and a few more spectators passed through the doors. All teams battled it out to try and get their hands on the winning prize of 4 tickets to the Dublin Racing Festival in Leapordstown, kindly sponsored by Leapordstown Racecourse. As with everything, there can only be one winner.
Later on in the evening, a familiar face popped in to present the raffle winners with their prizes and stun the crowd with what he does best.. Mr Keith Barry! He ever so kindly agreed to come in after his show in the city. We were privelaged to have not only one but two magicians present to entertain the teams.
The night was a huge success! Patrick, Niamh and I all reached our target of €1000 thanks to everyone's continuous support.
A big thank you goes to all of our sponsors, Colm Dawson, Keith Barry, Doyles Pub and everyone who attended!
