What is Daffodil Day?

The Cancer Society of New Zealand's Daffodil Day symbolises hope for 1 in 3 New Zealanders affected by cancer.

Since 1990, this iconic event has inspired people to come together and support the Cancer Society's work. As well as providing an opportunity to raise awareness of cancer in New Zealand. Our vision improving community well-being by reducing the incidence and impact of cancer. Our dream is cancer-free New Zealand but to achieve this goal we need your help to make that happen.

Your donations support those affected by cancer and help reduce our communities’ risk of developing cancer by encouraging and supporting people to stay well. We are dedicated to supporting research, advocating for policy change and delivering programmes that reduce people’s cancer risk.

There are so many ways to raise money. Have a yellow-themed dress-up day at your home, office or school. Hold a bake sale, host a morning tea or meal or any other creative fundraising ideas you can come up with. The options are endless.

The money you raise is used to support people affected by cancer and their whānau, fund lifesaving cancer research and help reduce the incidence of cancer for our children and grandchildren.

Your event will help Paint August Yellow, raise critical funds needed to support the work of the Cancer Society and send a powerful message that no one should go through cancer alone.

Fundraise your way, register your fundraiser now and help Kiwis with cancer.

We've been lucky enough to fill all our volunteer roles this year! If you're keen to volunteer your time as a street collector, please keep us in mind for next year!
