Daffodil Day and the Importance of Giving….

March 25, 2019

Daffodil Day

Daffodil Day is an important day on the calendar for the Irish Cancer Society as it is their biggest fundraiser of the year, which takes place every March 22nd.

Every year millions of euro is raised through the efforts of communities coming together to raise funds (and not forget, raising awareness) to provide those suffering with free advice and support and for life-saving cancer research.

Around the country workplaces, groups and individuals come together in fundraising efforts for this meaningful cause.

On that day, last week the sense of community was rife on the streets of Cork as stalls of Daffodil Day representatives lined each corner, greeting each new donation with a smile of sincere thanks and a beautiful bouquet of spring daffodils.

Daffodil Day resonates in particular for me and for many as it offers hope to those suffering with a potential a break-through that could be made.

In the Fuzion office we rallied together and collected our contributions, which were kindly matched by Dee and Greg – raising a nice sum of money, which we know will go directly to a fantastic cause.

The act of giving sparks joy and we should all be more conscious of giving; whether it’s to a worthy charitable cause, helping out a friend in need, giving thanks to a client or colleague, or being more giving with our time – it all makes a difference – and that is a feeling that you can not obtain from “getting”.

We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give.” ―Winston S. Churchill
