What is Daffodil Month?
Daffodil Month, held every April, is a national fundraising campaign of the Canadian Cancer Society. During the month, Society volunteers are involved in numerous activities to raise vital funds for the fight against cancer.
We ask Canadians to reflect upon the thousands of people who are living with cancer and to remember loved ones lost to cancer. During Daffodil Month we encourage Canadians to do something special for those living with cancer or to contribute in some way to the fight against this disease.
Depending on the location, activities include selling fresh daffodils; asking people to make a donation and wear a daffodil pin throughout the month to show their support for people living with cancer; and canvassing neighbourhoods for donations door to door.
Funds raised throughout the month help the Canadian Cancer Society prevent cancer, fund research to outsmart cancer, empower, inform and support Canadians living with cancer and advocate for public policies to improve the health of Canadians.
