Daffodil Day is an important way to support the Cancer Council in August. Buy a daffodil or yellow memorabilia on 22nd August 2014 to give awareness and financial support to this organisation.
Many charities and ribbon days exist for specific types of cancer. But the Cancer Council works to help all types of cancer.
Small simple contributions can change the life of a cancer patient. The Cancer Council's web site outlines just how tangible these contributions are.
$10 will give much needed exercise for a cancer patient. Physiotherapy, rehab, and other exercise programs are crucial for cancer patients' recovery.
$50 can help a cancer patient to speak on the phone with a nurse. Patients always have questions about their conditions. This source of personal advice is just as important, possibly more useful, than a Google search.
How does one get involved in Daffodil Day? The secret is to have fun. Unique forms of sponsorship and PR prove there's more to charity than buying a ribbon. Opera Australia submitted a rendition of "Walking on Sunshine" for the Sorbent Sing for Daffodil Day appeal.
I won't start singing for charity (it wouldn't make much money). We all have different ways to contribute towards the cause. Now is the time to think outside the box. In the name of charitable awareness.
