LETTER: Give daffodils, give hope
Tuesday, March 05, 2013 4:16 AM
One of the first flowers of spring, the daffodil, is a symbol of hope. To the American Cancer Society (ACS) this flower represents the hope we all share for a future where cancer is no longer a life-threatening disease.
Cancer will affect the lives of one in every two men and one in every three women.
Funds raised through daffodil sales help fund cancer research, education, advocacy and vital patient services. Your support is greatly appreciated.
Daffodil Days is about sharing hope for a world with less cancer and more birthdays, where cancer never steals another year from anyone's life.
By giving daffodils to friends, family members and even cancer patients, you are really giving hope because together, we-are-helping people-stay well, helping people-get well, finding cures and fighting back.
A bunch of daffodils is $10 or a special purchase of three bunches for $25. Daffodils are the perfect reminder of the coming spring.
A bunch with a vase is $15; a great way to welcome spring after a long cold winter.
"Dainty Daffodils" are $15. This product features replantable miniature daffodil bulbs in a container; perfect for display on your desk or tabletop.
A "Bear and a Bunch" is $25. Celebrate the seventh anniversary of the Boyds by Enesco bear created each year especially for the American Caner Society Daffodil Days.
Daffodil Days in Spring Grove will be Thursday and Friday, March 14 and 15 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the American Legion dining area and again on Saturday, March 16, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
