What is Daffodil Day?

The Cancer Society of New Zealand’s Daffodil Day symbolises hope for 1 in 3 New Zealanders affected by cancer.

Since 1990, this iconic event has inspired people to come together and support the Cancer Society’s work. As well as providing an opportunity to raise awareness of cancer in New Zealand. 

Your donations will go towards vital scientific research into the causes and treatment of all types of cancer, as well as providing a wide range of support services, education and awareness campaigns / programmes for people affected by cancer in your area.

Whether it’s buying daffodils / donating to our street collectors, purchasing our merchandise, or making a donation by text / phone / online, every gift counts.

How a donation can make a difference

There are many ways a donation makes a difference for people with cancer:

$10 helps provide information like cancer brochures.

$15 helps volunteers drive people to their hospital appointments.

$20 helps run the Cancer Information Helpline 0800 CANCER (0800 226 237) – Any cancer, any question. 

$50 helps provide counselling and support to people affected by cancer.

$100 helps us to make our schools SunSmart, and our communities Smokefree.

$150 helps provide accommodation for people traveling out of town to have treatment.

$500 helps fund ground-breaking research into new and better ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer.

But any donation, no matter how large or small, will make a difference in the life of someone living with cancer.

With your help, there is hope.
