Based at Notre Dame Junior School in Dundrum, Dublin, the children involved in the initiative choose a minimum of three children's groups to assist each year. This year, Notre Dame are supporting the Children's Sunshine Home, Leopardstown, Dr. Horne's Zambian Fund,  the Umbrella Foundation, Chernobyl Children's Project  and Siem Reap, an orphange in Cambodia.

The Notre Dame final Open Day was held on Thursday 3rd June. We made €1800 including the raffle. Well done to all the mini businesses and Miss Doran. Thanks again to everyone who supported us in any way. Our first Open Day was Friday, 12th March, 2010, and thanks to the generous sponsors and pupils, staff and families we made €1045
