During Daisy Days, we invite you to support Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) by hosting a fundraising event. Everyone in your community can make hope bloom for children at CHOP.

The best part is you don’t need experience to make your event a success — just the energy and enthusiasm to make it happen.

We hope you’ll join us!

Dress Down, Up or Daisy

Encourage your colleagues to dress down (think jeans, a favorite sports jersey or crazy hat) — or in white and yellow like a daisy — to raise funds for CHOP. Participants are encouraged to make a donation to get involved. Make it a friendly competition with a vote for most spirited outfit. We’ll even send you Dress Down Daisy Days stickers for everyone to show their support! Order Dress Down Daisy Days stickers for your event.

You’ve Got Talent

Community groups all over the region regularly host dance-a-thons, reading challenges and even sports competitions to raise money for CHOP. Choose the challenge that works best for your group, then collect pledges or donations from your friends, relatives and the community.

Sell Paper Daisies

Make a Daisy Days display with daisy paper icons. You can request daisy paper icons from us, then sell them in your community or at an event, allowing anyone who makes a donation to CHOP to add their names to the blooming display in support of The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. Order daisy paper icons.
