Give generously on Daffodil Day

Cancer Society Daffodil Day.The daffodil is one of the first flowers of spring, whose bright yellow blooms remind us of the joys the new season will bring. It also represents hope for the 1 in 3 New Zealanders affected by cancer.

Daffodil Day (Friday 30th August 2019) is a major funding source for the Cancer Society, as well as an opportunity to raise awareness of cancer in New Zealand.

You can help by volunteering as a Daffodil Day collector – over 8,000 collectors are needed nationwide to ensure Daffodil Day is a success.

Ways you can donate to Daffodil Day

  1. Make a cash donation to an official street collector on Daffodil Day in exchange for a daffodil or other merchandise;
  2. Make a cash donation at any ANZ Bank branch; or
  3. Donate with your credit card using a secure online donation form.

You can also fundraise your way with Paint August Yellow. Have a yellow themed dress-up day, hold a bake sale, host a morning tea or do a raffle.

How your Daffodil Day donations make a difference
