About 100minds

100minds is a volunteer-run, non profit organisation, founded in 2013, that brings together some of Ireland’s top students and connects them with one cause to achieve big goals in a short space of time. 100minds was founded and is run by Declan Egan a former UCD student now currently working in Google. Together with a team of young professionals they have launched 100minds to the brand it is today in just under 2 years.

How it Works

They recruit Ireland’s top students and challenge them to raise €1,000 each in a creative and entrepreneurial way. They set themselves the goal of generating a large donation for a worthy charity in a lean and transparent way.

Every participant who joins 100minds is partnered with a mentor (a recent graduate now in full-time employment). The role of the mentor is to motivate the participant in achieving their fundraising goal, advise on any project initiatives, provide assistance if the participant is struggling and also to give tips and guidance to the participant on how to secure a job when they finish college.

Each participant is given an online profile page on the 100minds website. It acts as a fundraising hub for the participant to track and log their progress and provides them with a platform from which they blog about the experience and highlight new skills gained. It also allows the students to collect money via credit/debit card payments straight into the chosen charity’s bank account.

The Catwalk 4 Kids Fashion Show was in aid of Barnardos and Blossom Ireland took place this week (February 23rd) in House Dublin. It was organised by Sarah Murphy, Bronte Wakefield and Lucy May Bradshaw.

Throughout the show the guests were spoilt for choice with new Spring/Summer collections from TOPSHOP and TOPMAN as well as looks from FOLKSTER, LOUIS COPELAND and STARLA. For anyone getting suited and booted for ball season Folkster, Louis Copeland and Starla provided plenty of fashion inspiration. Last but not least for anyone feeling left out by not attending this years London Fashion week they were in for a treat as ELECTRONIC SHEEP shared what they showcased in Somerset House across the water this week.

The MC on the night Emma O Farrell kicked off the show after guests were spoilt at the champagne reception.

A great night overall with speeches, raffles, goodie bags, a great atmosphere and of course fashion. Well done again to the girls and I cannot wait to hear how much was raised for Barnardos and Blossom Ireland.

  1. I’ve always suoetrppd Barnardo’s. It’s a great charity and has been running for a number of successful years now. And what better way to promote than to include websites and how to make money! Creating your own websites is a huge huge deal at the moment and there are so many ways to do it. Though most of us don’t know where to start. I’m looking forward to the feedback from this event.
