100minds – the ultimate student fundraiser – is back!

Calling on third-level students and young professionals across the Ireland to challenge themselves, to stand out from the crowd and make a real impact for sick children in Temple Street by joining 100minds – the ultimate student fundraiser.

100minds – the ultimate student fundraiser in support of CHI at Temple Street – returns this autumn and is calling on third-level students and young professionals across the country to make a real impact for sick children. The 2019-2020 programme was officially launched today by some Temple Street friends – Lauren and Shaun Brennan from Dundalk and this year’s 100minds media partner, Spin 1038!

Temple Street Foundation are calling on third-level students and recent graduates around the country to flex their entrepreneurial muscles and sign up to this year’s programme, which aims to raise €100,000 and more for Temple Street in just 100 days. The campaign begins with mentor registration open from August 20th – September 13th and student registration from September 16th – October 18th 2019.

100minds is a fundraiser like no other – offering third-level students a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to create, develop and realise their own novel fundraising project and raise €1,000 each in 100 days to support Temple Street’s life-saving work.

100minds are recruiting motivated, determined and creative students to take part this year. 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 Temple Street Foundation 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. Anyone who takes part in 100minds is making a real difference in the lives of sick children in Temple Street.”

She added, “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. We are delighted to welcome Spin 103.8 on board this year as official media partner for the upcoming 100minds programme.”

Since 2013, 100minds has raised over €1.2million in support of Irish Children’s charities.  It is now an annual fundraiser for 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 in May this year.
