Dell and the Irish Cancer Society today announced the availability of a free Daffodil Day smartphone App. The App works on Android, iOS and Windows Phone and has a range of features including a location mapping function that allows users to discover nearby Daffodil Day merchandise sellers in their area. The app is a charitable giving tool which makes it easier than ever to donate to the Irish Cancer Society on Daffodil Day, which will be held on March 28th this year.
The team at Dell Ireland is behind the App, which the Irish Cancer Society hopes will be instrumental in attracting a new generation of supporters to the Daffodil Day campaign.
“What better way to generate awareness of and support for Daffodil Day among young people than through a free smartphone app. The tech experts at Dell have come up with a range of brilliant features including a dynamic map that lets you track down locations where campaign merchandise is available. You can also use the app to make a donation, to volunteer your time on March 28th, or simply to keep up to date with all the latest news and social media posts from the Irish Cancer Society. We’re encouraging everyone to download the free app today,” said Shane Breslin, Web Services Manager from the Irish Cancer Society.
Dell has been the lead partner of the Irish Cancer Society on Daffodil Day since 2011. The partnership sees Dell contribute to many different aspects of the campaign, ranging from the technological to the logistical. The company provides marketing, financial and volunteering support for Daffodil Day, with almost every one of Dell’s 2,500 employees in Cork, Limerick and Dublin involved in the campaign in some capacity.
“Our partnership with the Irish Cancer Society on Daffodil Day is a hugely productive one that sees our people draw on their unique skills to assist the campaign. In this case, our app development team has created a fantastic, multi-functional tool that we hope will play a significant role in helping the Society to achieve its fundraising goals on Daffodil Day,” said Timmy O’Dwyer, Limerick site leader, Dell Ireland.
Funds raised on Daffodil Day go towards funding the important work done by the Society, including the provision of a night nursing service to those who are seriously ill with cancer and wish to remain at home.
