We invite your place of business to support Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) by creating a promotion or fundraising event during Daisy Days! It’s a wonderful way for your retail business to touch the lives of young patients who rely on CHOP — and to let your customers know about a cause that matters to your company.
Ninety percent of consumers want companies to tell them what they’re doing to benefit a cause. Supporting the Daisy Days campaign is a winning proposition for your business, your customers and CHOP.
We hope you’ll join us!
Looking for some Daisy Days event inspiration? The following fundraising ideas will get you started.
Have another idea? Great! We encourage you to get creative with your Daisy Days fundraiser. We’re here to help you plan, prepare, publicize and ensure the success of your event. Just fill out the event and promotion form and we’ll be in touch to offer our support.
Donate a Portion of Sales to CHOP
Pick a date (or dates!) during the month of May and let your customers know you’ll be donating a portion of all sales to CHOP. You can also select a specific product or service and donate a portion of proceeds from those sales. We’ll even help you get the word out about your promotional day(s) to drive customers to your business. Just fill out the event and promotion form and we’ll be in touch to offer our support.
Sell Paper Daisies at your Retail Business
Make a Daisy Days display with daisy paper icons. You can request daisy paper icons from us, then sell them at your store or restaurant allowing anyone who makes a donation to CHOP to add their names to the blooming display in support of Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. Order daisy paper icons.
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.
