100Minds calls on students to fundraise for Temple Street

by Rachel Darcy

100minds – a student fundraiser in support of Children’s Health Foundation Temple Street – returns this autumn and is calling on third-level students and young professionals to get involved and make a real impact for sick children.

Children’s Health Foundation Temple Street is calling on students and graduates to flex their entrepreneurial muscles and sign up to this year’s programme, which aims to raise €100,000 in just 100 days. The student registration runs from now until October 18.

The programme offers third-level students an opportunity to create, develop and realise their own fundraising project and raise €1,000 each in 100 days to support the life-saving work at Temple Street.

Successful students will be supported on their fundraising journey by a young professional mentor who will offer guidance and direction as they work to achieve their fundraising target.

Commenting on this year’s programme, Campaigns Manager at Children’s Health Foundation Temple Street Terri Reynolds said: “100minds is a fantastic opportunity for ambitious young people who want to make an impact, develop new skills and grow both their professional and personal network which will be so important over the next few years.

“Anyone who takes part in 100minds is making a real difference in the lives of sick children in Temple Street.”

“We are so excited to see what this year’s 100minds participants will create and look forward to kicking off the campaign this coming winter.”

Since 2013, 100minds has raised over €1.3million in support of Irish Children’s charities. It is now an annual fundraiser for Children’s Health Foundation Temple Street, supporting a range of projects including the redevelopment of St. Philomena’s Ward and a new satellite classroom for the neurosurgery ward, which was opened officially last year.
