Daffodil Days @ MIT

DaffodilDaffodil Days Coordinator: Elsye Luc
MIT Address: 26-505, Tel: 452-2556

2013 Daffodil Days at MIT will be celebrated this year during March. You may sign up to order a bouquet of Daffodils by calling me at the number above or sending email to elsye@mit.edu. The deadline to place and pay for your order is Tuesday, February 26th.

On Friday, January 18th, MIT received an award from the American Cancer Society for raising almost $33,000 in our 2012 campaign. We are all VERY HAPPY and PROUD of being associated with such a special group of caring and generous people. Please help us raise funds again this year for the daffodil campaign.

At MIT's kickoff luncheon we learned some interesting facts:

  • 2400 volunteers helped raise $1.2 million in the 2012 MA Daffodil Days Campaign.
  • Over 300,000 daffodils were packed and sold in the MA daffodil campaign last year
  • ACS offers the only 24 hr /365 day cancer support line in the USA
  • The ACS has distributed over $60 million dollars to multiple cancer researchers in the Boston area
  • There are over 13.7 million cancer survivors in the US
  • In the US now, over 50% of people that are diagnosed with cancer will survive

Here are the 2013 offerings –

Bouquets are $10.00 – any bouquets ordered will be delivered directly to me and I will notify you when they are ready to be picked up.

Potted daffodil bulbs are $15.00 – something new we are offering to people that they can enjoy at home or in their office. They are quite cheerful looking and will do well for close to a month.

Gifts of Hope are $25, $50 $100 or any amount above – this generous contribution will enabBear-bunchle us to send daffodils directly to patients who are at Mount Auburn and MGH being treated for cancer. The flowers will be delivered with a message that someone from MIT has made a generous contribution to fight against cancer and is sending them these daffodils in the hope that they will win their fight against cancer.

Bear and Bunch are $25 – these can be purchased for yourself, to give to a friend, or to send to a child in the hospital.

Other donations – any denomination of your choice, can be given to me and will be passed along to the American Cancer Society.

Forms of Payment – cash and checks. Checks need to be made out to the American Cancer Society. If you want a receipt for tax purposes then please pay by check.


Thank you!
