Canadian Cancer SocietyIt’s Daffodil Month in Manitoba, so the Canadian Cancer Society is asking Manitobans to consider dropping a Toonie into the daffodil pin box to support the organization.

Canvassers will be making their rounds this month by going door-to-door to collect donations for the society.

“By wearing a bright yellow daffodil pin we show Manitobans living with cancer that they are not alone,” said Erin Crawford, Manitoba’s senior director of public engagement.

“Every April, thanks to our volunteers, we are able to engage Manitobans and help cancer patients and their families cope with cancer.”

Daffodil Month runs from April 1-30. During this month, the Canadian Cancer Society asks Manitobans to wear a bright yellow Daffodil to show those involved in a cancer fight that they are not alone and to remember loved ones lost.

More than 3,000 Canadian Cancer Society volunteers are also involved in the province’s largest door-to-door Daffodil Month canvass.
