Got some questions?

[vc_toggle title=”What do these bars mean?” el_id=”1473379272695-09dd989f-5333″]We’ll be going smartphone-less for either one, two, three or four weeks. How long this lasts depends on how much you, the public, donates to the cause. Once we break through €750, it’s a full month of Nokia.[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”How can I donate?” el_id=”1473377669546-f98cc3bc-49db”]All you need to do is head on over to our JustGiving.com page. Here you can donate whatever amount you like! Just remember, the more you donate the longer we go without smartphones.Donate CTA[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”What will happen to my donation?” el_id=”1473378563624-5220fe77-dcd3″]Your donation will not only condemn the Goos3D team to a life without smartphones, but it will help cancer research. Dare to Care was created by TodayFM to support the Irish Cancer Society.
  • €20 can help provide support and information for anyone affected by cancer through our Cancer Nurses on our Nurseline or our website www.cancer.ie
  • €40 could allow our researchers to extract 10 DNA samples from breast cancer cells for genetic analysis.
  • €60 can offer 4 lifts for a patient, taking them to and from hospital for chemotherapy treatment.
