Lara Spencer delivers Daffodils at a local hospital
"As a supporter of the American Cancer Society, I have seen first hand the determination of the Society and the grace and strength of the survivors, fighting toward a world with more birthdays. I am proud to be a part of the More Birthdays movement!"
You can give hope to people facing cancer and save lives by supporting the American Cancer Society Daffodil Days® program. While Daffodil Days® involves offering daffodils every spring to donors in appreciation for their contributions, it is about more than just giving beautiful flowers: it is everyone’s opportunity to create a world with less cancer and more birthdays.
More than 5,000 California corporations, businesses, hospitals, schools, religious and community organizations participate in Daffodil Days®.
About Daffodil Days
Anyone can participate in Daffodil Days®. Volunteers coordinate Daffodil Days in their companies, schools, neighborhoods, or places of worship by collecting orders and distributing bouquets. Volunteers can also fill orders, help with logistics, and solicit sponsorships. Companies and organizations seeking greater community awareness can sponsor Daffodil Days through cash or in-kind sponsorships.
- In January and February, volunteers ask coworkers, families, and friends to make donations for daffodil bouquets that are available in March.
- Volunteers can also ask for donations for Gift of Hope. A Gift of Hope is a bouquet of 10 daffodil stems in a vase that is delivered to people with cancer in hospitals and treatment centers in our community. It is delivered anonymously, and it’s meant to share hope for a future where cancer no longer threatens us, or those we love.
- Bear of Hope is a new product for 2010! Bear of Hope donations support the lifesaving mission of the American Cancer Society and allow the Society to anonymously deliver a limited edition Boyds® by Enesco® bear to a child in the community who is receiving cancer care.
- Volunteers are encouraged to register online and use the online tools available.
