Daffodil Day / Deň narcisov 2008


Tomorrow you can again (like each year in the beginnig of April) meet collectors from Cancer Society (Liga proti rakovine) on the streets of Slovakia towns. It will be 12th Daffodil Day here in Slovakia.Young people, students and scouts will be exchanging small yellow badge in shape of daffodil against small voluntary contribution in favour of oncologic patients.
Blogged in 2006 and 2007.

Zajtra opäť (tak ako každý rok začiatkom apríla) môžete stretnúť mladých ľudí dobrovoľníkov, ktorí Vás oslovia v mene Ligy proti rakovine s prosbou o podporu boja proti rakovine a pomoc ľuďom, ktorých táto choroba postihla. Za Váš dobrovoľný príspevok dostanete malý odznak v podobe malého žltého kvietka narcisu. Zajtra je totiž už 12. Deň narcisov , čo je asi najznámejšia verejná finančná zbierka na Slovensku.Minulý rok sa aj vďaka Vám podarilo vyzbierať neuveriteľných 20.678.712,- Sk! Dúfam. že ich ani tento rok neobídete.
Deň narcisov na tomto blogu v roku 2006 a 2007 .

Hi, I'm a spanish student living in Bratislava. I met lots of people with these small flowers around, and hopefully they could explain to me half in english half in slovak what was this day for.
I'm amazed and I really think we should copy the idea in other countries to fight against this sickness.
I hope this year we reach a higher amount than last year!

Hi Jako,

You delighted us by making my wife's painting your favorite at

Seeing your blog I can understand now that you have made your seal, like a Japanese Hanko, by your self, and also how this great yellow flower painting was printed and the print done. Great work. Thanks for sharing.
