Give daffodils. Give hope.

By Staff | Feb 2, 2012

Spring is on its way and so is the American Cancer Society Daffodil Days. Palo Alto County residents have until Monday, Feb. 20, to place their orders for daffodils.

With Daffodil Days, the hope goes beyond the symbol of the flowers knowing that with every bouquet ordered, it makes an actual difference in the lives of real people fighting cancer. Along with daffodils, Boyds’ Bear Shar N. Hope can be ordered as well to bring a smile to someone’s face. Through the Bear Hugs for Hope option, a bear can be sent to a local child touched by cancer, giving them hope that one day this will be a cancer free world.

Ordering daffodils for friends, customers, and employees can brighten their days, desks, or dinner tables. Proceeds help the American Cancer Society to offer free programs and services that save lives by helping people stay well by preventing cancer or detecting it early, helping people get well by being there for them during and after a cancer diagnosis, by finding cures through investment in groundbreaking discovery, and by fighting back by rallying lawmakers to pass laws to defeat cancer and by rallying communities worldwide to join the fight.

Make a minimum $10 donation to the American Cancer Society to receive a bunch of approximately 10 daffodils. For a $25 donation to the Gift of Hope program, you help the American Cancer Society anonymously deliver beautiful bouquets arranged in vases to area cancer patients. This year also features Shar N. Hope, a special Boyds Bear designed exclusively for the American Cancer Society’s Daffodil Days Bear and a Bunch that can be ordered for a donation of $25.

Orders are now being taken. Contact Candy Bisenius 712.852.5500. Daffodils arrive March 12-16.
