Today (Friday) is Daffodil Day around Australia.
So what is Daffodil Day?
Daffodil Day is a day for all of us to grow hope for a brighter, cancer-free future for ourselves, and for those we love. Every donation helps to grow hope; hope for better treatments, hope for more survivors, hope for a cancer-free future.
Why daffodils?
The daffodil was chosen as the symbol of hope for all affected by cancer because of its reputation as a hardy annual flower, pushing its way through the frozen earth after a long winter to herald the return of spring, new life, vitality and growth. As one of the first flowers of spring, the daffodil symbolises rebirth and new beginnings. To the Cancer Council, the daffodil represents hope for a cancer-free future.
What does the Cancer Council do with the money raised from Daffodil Day?
Your donation will help the Cancer Council raise much needed funds to support vital cancer research, develop cancer prevention programs, and provide patient support for the many Australian lives affected by cancer.
Remember to pick up your merchandise from the stall outside the Rainbow Newsagency on Friday (today).
