Ordinarily during April, volunteers with the Canadian Cancer Society would be selling bright yellow flowers in communities across the country as part of the society’s annual Daffodil Campaign.
As part of COVID-19 precautions, however, the society has suspended all of its face-to-face fundraising activities. But April is still Daffodil Month, because there’s still a need for the funds to help Canadians fighting cancer.
The Cancer Society website notes that the daffodil “is a symbol of hope and renewal. It survives our harsh winter and is the first flower to bloom in the spring. This sunny symbol is more relevant than ever at this time when we all need to join together and look ahead to brighter days.”
The Cancer Society is hoping supporters will help provide sunny days for cancer sufferers by taking part in this year’s Daffodil Campaign online. Donations to the campaign will help support the society’s helpline and online support programs during this period and throughout the year.
