Support Daffodil Day on August 26
Let’s work together to end cancer
CANCER Council Queensland will celebrate its iconic fundraiser during the entire month of August, with the official Daffodil Day 30-year anniversary date falling on August 26.
Cancer Council Queensland spokesperson Katie Clift said Queenslanders could show their support and purchase a daffodil.
She said investing in cancer research, supporting Queenslanders who were diagnosed and ensuring their survival was imperative – and was possible through initiatives like Daffodil Day.
Getting involved is easy – buy a pin or pen to show you care about Queenslanders affected by cancer, or donate and dedicate a daffodil on social media with the hashtag #daffodilday.
Queenslanders can also text to donate to the cause for the first time in 2016, and dedicate a daffodil in support of those affected.
“All Australians need to do is text HOPE to 1999 8877 and a $5/sms donation will automatically be incorporated into their mobile bill,” Ms Clift said.
“A follow-up text message will enable Australians to personalise a daffodil dedication. Daffodil dedications will also be available via Facebook.”
