What is Daffodil Day?
It is an opportunity to raise awareness of cancer in New Zealand.
Since 1990, our iconic street appeal has inspired people to come together and support the Cancer Society's work.
Your donations will go towards providing a wide range of support services, education and awareness programmes, plus fund vital research into the causes and treatment of all types of cancer.
Thanks to ANZ, our principal sponsor, for supporting the work we do for over 30 years.
Daffodil Day 2021
This year, Daffodil Day is on Friday 27 August 2021.
The 2021 Daffodil Day street appeal has been cancelled due to COVID 19 for the second year in a row.
We have moved online with a number of initiatives:
- You can donate online
- Go to daffodilday.org.nz and set up an online fundraising activity with other households in lockdown
- Scan the ANZ QR code daffodil - we effectively get $3 for each $1 with ANZ and others matching your dollar with an additional $2
- Support Emma Twigg in her challenge
Thanks so much for your ongoing support. Around the country we are still providing accommodation to those going through cancer treatment away from home; helping people get to their hospital appointments; and, providing support for people via our 0800 number and emails.
Cancer doesn't stop - so we won't either.
