LETTER: Help us celebrate 30 years of Daffodil Day
THIS Friday August 26 marks the 30th Anniversary of Daffodil Day, an occasion dedicated to raising hope for all Queenslanders affected by all cancers.
As you know, Daffodil Day is one of Queensland's most impactful cancer campaigns, engaging thousands of people to raise funds for lifesaving research and community services.
This year we hope to raise around $1.5 million statewide from selling around 800,000 fresh daffodils, releasing a limited edition "Dinner Suit" Dougal Bear and our iconic Daffodil Day pins.
We urge your readers to get involved by making a donation and wearing your pins with pride to support the campaign in your local community and via social media.
About 1600 volunteers will collect donations at more than 230 volunteer sites - we cannot thank them enough for enabling our vision.
One Queenslander is diagnosed with cancer every 20 minutes - please give generously this Daffodil Day and brighten the life of someone you love.
This Daffodil Day, wear your pin for all Queenslanders, all cancers.
