Cancer Council Queensland Calls for Strong Media Support on Daffodil Day

Daffodil-DayCancer Council Queensland has been urging people to support the national fundraiser on their computer, tablet or mobile phone. It has been asking for robust media support in the lead up to Daffodil day i. e. August 23.

Cancer Council Queensland is hoping to raise $1.9 with the help of the community this Daffodil day. The funds will help one in two Queenslanders who will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime.

According to Cancer Council Queensland spokesperson Katie Clift, it was a great way to spread the word on social media in order to get involved and grow hope for a cancer free future.

"It could be sharing a Cancer Council Facebook update about Daffodil Day, re-tweeting a tweet or painting Instagram yellow with a snap to inspire others to get involved", Ms. Clift said.

Ms. Clift said social media is one the most effective tools that can be used to raise awareness about various campaigns meant for noble cause.

FAHAN School students planted daffodil bulbs in April in a bid to reap yellow harvest on Daffodil day. The girls will be selling bunches of the international symbol to raids funds for cancer research, prevention and support services in Tasmania.
