Thank you for visiting my 100minds donations page.
My name is Evelyn Tierney, I am 19 years old and in my second year of Commerce in UCD. This year, I have been given an amazing opportunity to work with 100minds to raise funds for Temple Street Children's University Hospital.
100 minds is a social enterprise project founded in 2013, it brings together 100 students to achieve big goals for the worthy cause Temple Street Children’s Hospital in a short space of time. This years challenge is for 100 students across the country to raise a collective €100,000 for Temple Street Children's Hospital in a 100 days.
This year, the money raised by 100minds participants will be used to purchase:
Life saving equipment
With the funds raised we will be able to purchase eight Nasophayngeal Endoscopes for our ENT and Speech and Language Departments, as well as a VuMaxHD A/B Ultrasound Scanner for Theatre.
2.Invest in supporting the families
At Temple Street, we strive to ensure the whole family is looked after by providing those little extras that make all the difference. The Hope Fund allows the Medical Social Work Department to assess a family’s needs and offer them extra support when needed.
3.Play therapy Department
The Play Therapy Department in Temple Street plays a vital role in helping to create a welcoming, non-clinical and fun environment for the children in our care. That’s why every year the Play Department hosts four special events at Easter, Summer, Halloween and Christmas. These events ensure that children who are in hospital for special occasions don’t miss out. Every Child Deserves a Childhood. Every penny from this fund is spent on fun activities like face painting, entertainment, costumes and decorations.
