Daffodil Month – Month of April
Fresh-Cut Daffodil and Daffodil Pin Sales
April is Daffodil Month and daffodil pins will be available at locations all over the Canada during the month of April. Volunteers will be out in the community spreading the word and Canadians everywhere will take a moment to reflect on the thousands who live with cancer and remember those who have died. During April, we are encouraging Canadians to do something special for someone with cancer or to make a donation to fight this disease.
Volunteers will be at Aberdeen Centre, Chinatown Plaza, Parker Place, and Crystal Mall selling fresh-cut daffodils and daffodil pins on March 19th and 20th, as well as Yaohan Center on March 26th and 27th. We will also be in several Asian restaurants on April 23rd and 24th raising cancer awareness and selling daffodil pins.
Would you like us to be at your restaurant? Or would like to have a Daffodil Pin Box at your organization for the month of April? Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 604-708-8818 / toll-free 1-877-708-8818
