The Sunflower Fund’s annual Sunflower Day
campaign will be commemorated on Friday 20 September 2019.
The campaign which is anchored by the sale of
the Tube of Hope (TOPE), a multi-purpose accessory, is aimed at raising funds
for the recruitment of blood stem cell donors to give the hope of cure to
patients diagnosed with life-threatening blood diseases like leukaemia.
Retailing for R30 at Pick ‘n Pay stores
nationwide, selected independent pharmacies and online at Zando, the design is
inspired by the coming together of various African cultures, bringing hope of
finding their life-saving match to patients in need of a stem cell transplant.
The TOPE comes in 6 vibrant colours each
symbolising hope and depicting a specific ‘HopeTag’. Hope tags are a series of
hash tags that will be used throughout the campaign as labels that unite an
empower us rather than the divisive labels that we’ve become accustomed to in
Get your favourite hope tag colour and make a
statement in support of individuals with blood diseases.
