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.”
