CANCER….. Please Excuse The Unusual Approach
Irish Cancer Society Daffodil Day 2013 Fundraising Appeal
As you all know today is Irish Cancer Society Daffodil Day 2013 Fundraising Appeal.
And due to the weather the level of fund raising is dramatically lower than other years…… Cancer and its treatment is very personal issue to me and to almost all of you at some level…. Suggestion.. texting the word DAFF to 50300 give 4 euros for Daffodil Day, 100% of monies goes through.

Here are some more details about how people can get involved, we got this information from the Irish Cancer Society website
Approximately 30,000 people are diagnosed with cancer each year in Ireland. We’re here to ensure that nobody has to face cancer alone and to provide information and support to people when they need it most.
We couldn’t do this work without the support of caring companies like yours and your generous staff. The money you raise funds our services – simple as that!
Register now to take part in this great event when companies show their support and help us get closer to a future without cancer.
Fun Event Ideas
These ideas can be organised during lunch or even during a morning tea break!
Why not have an office wide yellow day? Dig out those yellow clothing gems and have departmental competitions throughout the office!
Simple and effective- and a great way of bringing staff from different departments and floors together! Why not include a bake off with a raffle of the winning cake.
Why not hold a traditional fundraising night and organise a table quiz? Have a picture round, music round and maybe a tasting round! Source prizes from local businesses and hold a raffle!
Organise a sponsored walk- this can be done around the office or further-a-field. Why not get staff’s families involved and finish the challenge with a BBQ. We can provide sponsorship cards to help you on your way.
You know the drill! Have an X factor karaoke competition. Why not have the categories and the judges too? Who in your companies could rock that Simon Cowell hairstyle?
Have a photo competition which includes different categories such as; Who’s that baby?! Whose dad is that?! Who wore that?! Who is the celebrity?! And through the keyhole- you will get to see behind the doors of colleagues houses!
Hold an auction or a raffle. Ask your suppliers or contacts for prizes. Raffle off staff skills such as language lessons! Maybe the organisation would donate an extra day of annual leave for auction!
Have everyone bring in old items to sell on for €3-€5. This works really well as staff members get something for their money.
