It's time for Daffodil Days!


January 31, 2013 – For the 26th year, Harvard will be participating in the American Cancer Society’s annual Daffodil Days campaign. The Harvard community is invited and encouraged to participate in this year’s campaign which will run until February 22, 2013 with flowers delivered on Monday, March 18, 2013.

The American Cancer Society (ACS) Daffodil Days program is a nation-wide campaign in which volunteer coordinators promote the Daffodil Days program in the workplace, place of worship, school, neighborhood, civic organization, and community activities, and take requests for flowers.

    The following items can be ordered through your department coordinator through the end of February 2013:
  • Fresh bouquets of 10 daffodils for $10.
  • Bear and a Bunch includes Ray O. Hope, the 10-inch collectible 2013 Boyd’s bear with a daffodil bouquet for a donation of $25.
  • Potted daffodil bulbs have three multi-stem bulbs in each pot for $15.
  • Gifts of Hope provide daffodil bouquets anonymously to cancer patients in your community. Donations start at $25.
  • Bear Hugs for Hope provide Daffodil Days bears anonymously to children impacted by cancer. Donations start at $25.

You can give hope to people facing cancer and save lives by supporting the Daffodil Days program. The Daffodil Days program is your chance to fight back against cancer by raising funds and awareness to help beat the disease.

The last day to place an order is February 22, 2013. Flowers and other products will be delivered on Monday, March 18, 2013 through the generosity and hard work of Harvard University Mail Services.

All proceeds go to the American Cancer Society to help fund research, programs and services, and all of the money raised is a direct result of the charitable giving of our faculty, students and staff. Last year Harvard was the top fundraiser in Massachusetts raising more than $42,000 in donations for the ACS and this year Harvard hopes to raise $45,000.

How to Order: All orders must be placed through a Harvard University department coordinator. Payment options include cash, check, money order, or credit card. Checks should be made out to the American Cancer Society.
