April is daffodil month for the Canadian Cancer Society
Tomorrow is your last chance to pre-order daffodils for spring in support of the Canadian Cancer Society. The organization will be delivering the flowers to homes and businesses around Grande Prairie on April 1. Sandy Hunter, Revenue Development Coordinator for Canadian Cancer Society, says Monday marks the beginning of their Daffodil Campaign for the month of April.
“It’s a time for Canadians to unite and fight back against cancer. We use the daffodil as a symbol of hope at the Canadian Cancer Society while we fight against all types of cancer.”
Hunter says that’s not all they have going on for daffodil month.
“You’ll actually see our pin campaign run in about 100 different retailers around Grande Prairie where you can make a donation and wear a daffodil pin that shows Canadians that are living with cancer that they’re not alone on their journey.”
The daffodil campaign is also an important fundraiser for the organization.
“The money raised from the daffodil campaign helps us with research and advocacy. Things like financial aid that we provide to Grande Prairie residents.”
The flowers can be ordered by calling the Canadian Cancer Society’s Grande Prairie office. They are $6 dollars for a bunch of 8-10, or they are $10 with a vase.
