My name is Joseph Glynn and I would like to tell you exactly where your money is going. All proceeds go to Temple Street Childrens Hospital. Your donation will be used to fund the purchase of new life saving equipment and machines which are desperately needed, such as new high tech scanners and endoscopes. The equipment currently being used should have been replaced years ago.
You will also be contributing towards the sibling and fun camps which are run in the hospital. These camps are so important to the children and their families. It gives them the morale booster they need to stay strong during this difficult time. Temple Street also offers financial aid/support to the families of the sick children. Without your donations this wouldn't be possible!
Also, a little information about me. I am a 2nd Year student in UCD, studying Economics and Finance. In the past I volunteered at Marino Community Special School in Bray. The school offers educational placement to kids with disabilities. The work the school does is phenomenal and it allows the children to have a much brighter future. I firmly believe that all children should have the oppurtunity to a future of happiness and possibilities. This is why I jumped at the chance to get involved with 100minds and Temple Street.
During these 100 days, my goal is to raise a minimum of €1,000 and with your help I believe we can do it! I will be posting updates on my 100minds profile page, so be sure to check in.
Finally, I would like to thank 100minds for the fantastic support they provide us. They are a truly remarkable organisation which has raised over €1 million for Temple Street, Barnardos Ireland, Blossom Ireland and ISPCC Childline in the past 4 years.
Hey everyone, its December 8th and I've just wrapped up my first event of the 100 days.
Bag-packing in Dunnes Stores Cornelscourt was a massive success and raised an incredible €2,819.27!
Firstly, I would like to thank all the people who came down and helped bag-pack for a few hours, especially with exams around the corner. This wouldn't have been possible without your help and I really appreciate it. I would also like to thank Dunnes Stores Cornelscourt, who allowed us to bag-pack for the day, for being so helpful. Finally, thank you to the people shopping in Dunnes for being so generous and giving!
This event was jointly organised by myself, Rory O'Brien, Conor Ryan and Deirdre Neavyn. We were bag-packing from 10-6pm on 14 tills, it was a long day but definitely worth it. We allocated the funds evenly between us and added €704.82 to our individual profiles. Including this event I have raised €869 so far. It wont be long until I break the €1,000 target.
Just a reminder that all these funds will go directly to Temple Street Children's Hospital. Thank you for all the support. I can't wait to update you on my next event!
Thank you and have a Merry Christmas!
Willow Park Jersey Day & Final Update
Posted: over 3 years ago
Hey everyone! This is going to be the final update of the 100 days and I'm happy to tell you that I exceeded my target of raising €1,000. The final total is €1,670.61! I just want to say thank you so much for all your help and making this possible.
A special thanks goes to Willow Park School for allowing me to have a jersey day on the 9th February. Without them it would have been a lot more difficult to reach the €1,000 target. The jersey day was organised by myself and Rory O'Brien and raised an unbelievable €1,561.57 which we split between us. I am extremely grateful for all the support and kindness the students of Willow Park and their families showed. I would also like to thank Mr Docherty, Mr McAleer, all the teachers, the charity committee and the accounts deaprtment for all the work they put in!
In the beginning, the €1,000 mark seemed impossible and I wasn't sure if I should apply to be a part of the 100minds initiative but I can honestly say it was the best and most rewarding challenge that I have ever taken part in and I would highly recommend anyone thinking about taking part to get involved. 100minds really is a community and the support and encouragement they give you is incredible. Most importantly, thank you to my mentor, Olivia MacDonald and our Temple Street Foundation contact, Terri Reynolds for all their help!
