Hopes to raise $1.5m from 800K daffodils on Friday

THIS Friday marks the 30th anniversary of Daffodil Day, an occasion dedicated to raising hope for Queenslanders affected by cancer.

Daffodil Day is one of Queensland's most impactful cancer campaigns, engaging thousands of people to raise funds for life-saving research and community services.

This year we hope to raise about $1.5 million statewide from selling about 800,000 fresh daffodils, releasing a limited edition Dinner Suit Dougal Bear and our Daffodil Day pins.

We urge your readers to get involved by making a donation and wearing your pins with pride to support the campaign in your community and via social media.

One Queenslander is diagnosed with cancer every 20 minutes.

Please give this Daffodil Day.
