Why Caitlin is fundraising for

" is an incredible tool for young people to get information from other young people. For people who can't access information when they're feeling lost or need advice it's a free support tool. has become a huge part of my life and has guided me to becoming my best self. It is a community where we can make small differences to change people's lives. I have been able to volunteer abroad, post my opinion articles and meet friends I will have for the rest of my life, and I want people all over Ireland to be able to have the same experience. For this reason I'm fundraising for this year by doing the Dublin Marathon."

Why Caitlin decided to run the Dublin City Marathon:

"Last October, by chance, I was stuck in traffic driving past the Dublin Marathon. I couldn’t help but have total admiration for the people in the race. I was in awe. From that moment I decided I would run the Dublin Marathon the following year. It’s truly amazing what you can achieve in a year. What keeps me going is looking at how far I have come. With this I’m also hoping to inspire others to take on their dreams as I have."

How your donation helps is unique: when we say we're run by young people, for young people - we mean it. We know that more than half of Irish young people use the internet to find information when they're going through a tough time, and our mission is to provide those people with free, reliable, non-judgmental information on topics like mental health, sexual health, education, employment and much more. 

As a youth-run charity, we rely on the support of donors to help us reach as many young people as possible. If you agree with our mission and want to support our work, you can do so here. Every Euro we raise goes towards keeping our services freely available to the more than 180,000 people who access them each month.
