Every August, communities around Australia love coming together to spread hope and support the Daffodil Day Appeal.
Now in its 35th year, the Daffodil Day Appeal is Cancer Council’s most iconic fundraising campaign. This year’s Daffodil Day falls on Friday, 27 August.
For many of us in NSW, Daffodil Day means purchasing a beautiful bunch of fresh daffodils from a Cancer Council flag-ship stall to help fund world-class cancer research and show our support for people affected by cancer.
However, the current COVID-19 outbreak in NSW means that we can’t be out in the community this year.
Our flagship stalls are one of the most important ways that the community chooses to support Daffodil Day, both through donations and by purchasing fresh daffodils. We’re counting on you to show your flower power and help save Daffodil Day. Here are three ways you can make a difference:
Make an online donation at https://www.daffodilday.com.au/donate
Become a Yellow Fundraiser. You can take on a challenge, get active in yellow, give up something you love for the month of August – the options are endless. Register here: https://www.daffodilday.com.au/fundraise-your-way/
Join our Game for Good campaign. With many of us spending more time on screens now, why not do it for a good cause? Join Cancer Council’s team of streamers and power life-saving cancer research by raising funds for Daffodil Day. Visit https://tiltify.com/cancer-council-australia/game-for-good to get started.
Together, we can ensure that Daffodil Day continues to power a future free from cancer. If you have been affected by cancer, we’re here for you. Please reach out to us by calling our 13 11 20 Information and Support line.
Take care and stay safe,
NSW Campaigns Unit Manager
