Our Story

Welcome to DoGood

Welcome to DoGood. It’s our goal to make it easier for you to support those in need. I designed this platform to connect buyers and sellers with a common aim of doing good.

For Sellers, it’s a great way to declutter those unneeded items while earning some money for yourself and Surgeon Noonan. 

For Buyers, you get great products at great prices and you can feel proud that your purchase is helping those in need. 

It really is a win-win

Buy. Sell. Support. Earn.

I take no fees from this platform, all updates, maintenance and support are done voluntarily by me. The goal of this site is to raise money for Surgeon Noonan Project – a charity who do fantastic work with hospitals in rural Africa. The site uses Stripe to process payments. Stripe provide a secure, PCI compliant payment gateway which is vital for ensuring the safety of users. For this service, Stripe charge €0.25 + 1.4% on each transaction. Outside of this, all funds received help Surgeon Noonan to provide medical aid and supplies to partner hospitals in Africa.

We're just getting started, but make sure you check back here to see how much we've raised with your support

Our Background

shape e1604762189808

The team here at DoGood are all 4th year medical students in UCC (with a keen tech interest). They say “necessity is the mother of invention” and that certainly holds true with this platform. This idea arose after our planned fundraisers were cancelled during the recent lockdown. However, we were determined to not let the COVID-19 stop us from fundraising for our very own student-led charity, Surgeon Noonan. This is when the idea for DoGood first arose.

We have come a long way since then. We participated in the Student Inc. Accelerator Programme during the summer of 2020. We received some great support during this programme from lecturers, entrepreneurs and other participants. With this support, we were able to set up and launch this platform.

We are now and always will be a non-profit organisation. Our goal is to build a community of users who see that we can do more with our shopping. Shopping with us is good for the environment, good for struggling hospitals and good for your pocket. Who knew you could do so much good with just one purchase?

We’ve got something for everyone. Click below to check out the store.
