Image: Sunflower Day - rallying support for life-threatening blood diseases.

One of the many ways The Sunflower Fund raises funds and awareness is through campaigns like Sunflower Day. Sunflower Day is all about rallying support for individuals diagnosed with life-threatening blood diseases like leukaemia. Over the past 15 years, it has grown beyond the sale of TOPES to an open source campaign through which schools, corporates, supporters and the general public celebrate Sunflower Day and raise funds for The Sunflower Fund. Sunflower Day (21 September) is on the South African Health Awareness Calendar for 2018.   Read More...
