For more than 35 years, the American Cancer Society Daffodil Days program has been making a difference in the fight against cancer and providing hope for those facing the disease.
Although Daffodil Days involves offering daffodils to donors every spring in appreciation for their contributions, it is about more than just giving beautiful flowers; it is an opportunity to share hope for a world with less cancer and more birthdays, where cancer never steals another year from anyone's life.
The 38th annual Daffodil Days campaign will take place in Pennsylvania during the week of March 14 to 20.
The Bear and a Bunch comes with 10 daffodils and sells for $25. It features Liv N. Hope, a limited-edition Boyd’s Bear.
Daffodil contributions provide the society with much-needed dollars to help people stay well by preventing cancer or detecting it early; help people get well by being there for them during and after a cancer diagnosis; by finding cures through investment in groundbreaking research; and fight back by rallying lawmakers to pass laws to defeat cancer and rally communities worldwide to join the fight against cancer.
Daffodil Days is the perfect way to fight back in your community, local companies, schools, places of worship and with friends and family.
A bunch of 10 daffodils is available for a donation of $10. A special part of this year's Daffodil Days, Liv N. Hope, is a limited-edition Boyds Bear designed exclusively for the American Cancer Society Daffodil Days Bear and a Bunch.
It is available for a donation of $25 and comes with a bouquet of 10 daffodils. A Daffodil Days vase with 10 flowers or Vase and a Bunch is also available for a donation of $15.
In addition, you can help give comfort to a child in need in your community by delivering an anonymous bear with a donation of $25 to Project Care.
Gift of Hope, another new statewide product offering, provides donors a chance to send an anonymous bunch of daffodils and cancer information to a local cancer patient or caregiver with a donation of $25 or more.
