Every day, around 300 Australians are told they have a life-threatening cancer. With your help, we can make a difference and beat this disease. Please support Cancer Council’s Daffodil Day this August (Friday, 24th August), and give hope to the many lives affected by cancer; hope for better treatments, hope for more survivors, and hope for a cancer-free future.
This year’s Daffodil Day range includes our best-selling pens ($6), enamel lapel pin ($5), key rings ($8), football ($7), this year’s collectable ‘gardener’ Dougal Bear ($10) and large Dougal bear ($30), and of course bunches of fresh daffodils.
Coles celebrate their 17th year of support for Daffodil Day which has resulted in Coles and its customers raising over $11m to help Cancer Council beat cancer so far. Daffodil Day merchandise will be available at Coles Supermarkets from 1st August with an exclusive yellow pen, limited edition reusable bags, fresh daffodils and for the first time fresh, potted daffodils.
Cancer Council also welcomes Coles Express for the 2nd year, led by GM Peter Short, an oesophageal cancer survivor. Coles Express has started selling Daffodil Day merchandise and taking donations on site with a goal to raise half a million dollars. Your generosity will help Cancer Council fund vital cancer research, develop prevention programs and provide support for people affected by cancer.
Getting involved is easy. You can register to volunteer, order a merchandise box or donate by visiting www.daffodilday.com.au, phone 1300 65 65 85 or find us on Facebook. Purchase one of our Daffodil Day gifts at selected outlets during August**, and on Daffodil Day itself. You’ll also find Daffodil Day sites near your local shopping area, train and bus stations and other major locations.
This year Cancer Council aims to raise $9.2million for Daffodil Day. With your support we can help reduce the impact of cancer in Australia and give hope to the estimated 114,000 Australians who will be diagnosed this year alone.
**National supporting outlets include: Coles (including Coles Express, Bi-Lo and Pick ‘n Pay), Department of Human Services (Medicare and Centrelink), Millers, Rockmans, BeMe, Crossroads, Autograph stores and selected newsagents through Gordon & Gotch.
