Update 2/6/2010: Thanks for the continuing support, but please do not continue to post in the old thread. We have a new thread where you can hang out because TDM 2010 is about to begin. Come wait with us here!

Over 11,000 poll votes, dozens of Gaians, and hundreds of names honored on the Yellow Wall later, TDM 2k9 is finally over. This has been one amazing month, thanks to all of you.

I hope to see all of you next year! If you haven't done it already, add TDM Event Mule as a friend in order to add yourself to the TDM Mailing list. People on the mailing list will be notified when TDM 2k10 is about to happen!

Also, if you want to hang out with all your friends from the Movement in the off season, come to the Demon Wings|Angel Heart Charity. We'd love to hang out with you.^^

Welcome to The Daffodil Movement 2009.


This is a cancer awareness movement originally brought to Gaia in support of Long Vo (aka VO, art director and admin here on Gaia) whose father died from cancer April 9th, 2006.



The Daffodil Movement is usually held through the month of April. Traditionally during the event, users equip a daffodil bouquet on their avi to show support. The yellow daffodil is a symbol of renewal and hope, chosen by the American Cancer Society as an icon for the fight against cancer.
Last year was my first time ever managing this type of thread (and it shows…) due to disorganization and general hastiness, it didn’t turn out nearly as well as I had hoped. This year, though, I’ve done my research and planning well in advance, and I’ve also cooked up some fun new ways to get people involved. whee

wahmbulance Attention! Big bold letters means something important. wahmbulance

Visit our guild for team-related shenanigans! We will also be updating it soon to include some more nifties.

Rules of the thread:


-I am not affiliated with any of the previous organizers of the movement, so don’t hound them with questions/comments if I am unavailable please. 3nodding That is what the thread moderators are for.

-Be nice! Unacceptable behaviors include spam, trolling, begging, ToS violations, or anything else generally not tolerated in threads. You know the deal. Miscreants will be dealt with swiftly and absolutely.

-Strive for positivity. I encourage you to share your stories and feelings concerning cancer, cancer awareness, and the like, but this will not be a pity-party. Many people may be going through cancer themselves or seeing someone they love dealing with it. We’re here to hope for the best. heart

Remember, laughter is the very best medicine.

What You Can Do


There are many ways to get involved here on Gaia as well as IRL. Here are just a few~

-Equip a daffodil bouquet on your avi through the month of April.

-Add a daffodil or ribbon to your signature

-Submit an entry for the Yellow Wall. Make sure to label your PM or it will be deleted.

-Want to donate to our cause? You can do that by sending a labeled trade to the mule. You can give gold for the contests, yellow items for the mule to wear, or daffodil bouquets for us to give away. (Please do NOT send loose daffodils; it is much more costly and less efficient to make hundreds of bouquets from scratch, than to just buy them off the marketplace or have them donated to us.)

-If you need a bouquet to wear, just send a trade to us (meaning the mule...my account doesn't have them all) and we'll give you one free of charge. :3 Be sure to label your trade or it will be canceled.

-Check out one of these fine links:


What Is Cancer?
A general breakdown of what Cancer really is.

Cancer Awareness Calender
April may be the month for The Daffodil Movement, but you can find days for cancer awareness all year! This lists the different cancer days and months.

ACS Daffodil Days
The American Cancer Society’s real-life counterpart of the Daffodil Movement. “Daffodil Days involves offering daffodils every spring to donors in appreciation for their contributions. By giving daffodils to friends, family members, and even cancer patients, donors are really giving hope by enabling the Society to offer free programs and services to improve the lives of people facing cancer.”

Ribbons

*The ribbons below are the ones being represented in the event. I know that I don't by any means have all of them, but these are the ones I could find the most information on. If the type you want to represent isn't listed then you can choose "general"... sorry for any inconvenience. 3nodding *

There are many different types of cancer, and many of them have their own vast support groups. During this event you can choose to support a particular type of cancer. This list also provides an example of a site that supports that specific type.

The Yellow Wall


This is where we honor those that survived, those that did not, and those still fighting. To submit a name for the Yellow Wall, send a PM to the event mule with their name. If you want their name to be linked to an entry in TDM’s journal, send a personalized dedication along too. It can be a letter to them, their story, a memory about them, anything you like. (please specify at the beginning of your PM that you would like for the story to be added to the journal.)
Forgive any errors; this is a lot of names to keep up with. PM me if there are any corrections to be made. :3

Contests!


All contests open Wednesday, April 1st (April Fool’s day. Lawlz.) and end Saturday, April 25.

Remember you have a whole month to work on stuff! So take your time and do your best!!

Please note that you don't have to enter the contests, nor do you have to pick a side. You can sport the general awareness ribbon/dress up all daffodilly if you don't want to join any teams.

We now have a guild! Visit the TDM Guild to get in touch with your team-mates to organize and plot!

Gaia Contest!

Choose a team! Your team reflects the type you’re most interested in. Maybe it has affected you personally, or you’ve heard a lot about it and want to learn more… maybe you just liked its color or closed your eyes and poked a list! However you choose, the rules are simple. Design an avi (on Tektek) sporting your team’s colors. (Team Kidney is green, Team Brain is gray, etc.) White is acceptable for Lung instead of clear. Don’t forget to include daffodils! (We have just been reminded that Tektek doesn't have bouquets so scratch that... but don't you think it should? ninja )

Everyone entering the Gaia contest will submit ONE tektek via PM to the event mule. The avi must be color-themed to your team. (Yes, other colors are allowed, but it must be obvious what team you're representing. Also, say which team your in when you send it.) If you do not have a team, you cannot enter the contest. You won't be allowed to edit or replace your entry so make sure you have it perfect before submitting. The deadline for entries is April 25. Winners will be one from each team and one overall.


IRL Contest!

Same as the avi contest, except IRL! Whoever has the most awesome team garb from each category will win, as well as one overall. 10k from each category and 50k overall. You’ll need a sign with your screen name in the photo. Don’t forget to include daffodils in it if you can. ;d

The guidelines for the IRL contest are a bit more flexible than the Gaia one. The most important element is creativity. Your entry can be a picture of you in team garb, or it could be something team-related that you made. It could be color-coordinated or related to the part of the body. (For example, a person representing Brain Cancer could do something with the color grey or with brains, or both.) Your entry can be light-hearted or serious. Also, you are allowed to send in as many entries as you want, and the entries can be photo and video. Be sure to indicate who you are with a sign or verbal confirmation or else we can't credit the entry to you. The deadline for entries is April 25. Remember that any entries sent before April 1st WILL BE DELETED. Winners will be one from each team and one overall.
Entries for the IRL contest will be sent to Blaizekit.


Spirit contest!!

As an added bonus, throughout the event, whichever group has the most enthusiasm will win for their cause a real-life donation of at least 10 dollars. This will go up depending on how many people I know IRL I can rope into this thing, for I am poor, but the amount will be at least that much. If I can’t find a way to donate directly to the cause, I’ll submit a general donation to ACS. Of course, you are welcome to make donations of your own. blaugh
So get out there and show your team spirit!! This will be done through the guild, where you can chat with your team, organize get-togethers, and post your art/avis/and photos.

The spirit contest is based on how organized and enthusiastic your team is. There are a lot of ways a team shows their spirit. They take the initiative to recruit more people, hold their own contests, and organize meetings in Towns and basically act as if they genuinely care about awareness of their type. Due to the nature of this kind of contest, we want to make sure that the people doing these things aren't out for personal gain. Because of that, there is no Gold prize for this. The team that me and the mods deem "most spirited" will recieve a real-life donation for their type.

READ THIS OR YOU COULD BE DISQUALIFIED!

If you don't put in your entry correctly, it will be deleted. Simple as that. Make sure you carefully read the rules for each contest. Tektek entries go to the mule. IRL entries go to me. If you post Tekteks in the thread, we'll assume that you're doing it for others to critique, not to enter it in the contest.
When you send your Tektek, say in the PM which team you're on. It should be obvious by the colors, but we don't want to take any chances.

Winners will be judged by me and my mean team of thread mods, so that each of us can be on a team and ensure fair judging.

Weekly Contests!

There will be weekly contests held througout April to keep things fresh and lively around here. Here's the catch; like many things, you must go to the TDM Guild to participate in it. Don't delay! Fabulous prizes and fierce competition awaits.

Thread Moderators


These guys will make sure people in the thread behave. They also are the closest path to me if I am unavailable online for whatever reason. (If they don’t know me real life, they know someone who does.) They also have access to the event mule, so don’t think of spamming on their watch. They can and will delete your post and maybe even report you. To get this position also means that I trust them, so please regard them highly.

User Image

Shakespearean Squirrel:

Throw a squirrel into a blender with a heap of luff and a dash of Shakespeare, and you'll have my friend Shakespearean Squirrel. She is an odd creature with a fondness for a strange thing known as "literacee". Her amazing squrirrel ninja minions are good for everything from assassinations to sending care packages to friends feeling under the weather. I haven't seen her mean side at all yet, but I'm sure it's pretty scary.



User Image

MoonDwarf:

Moonie is a great friend that I have known for over a year here on Gaia. She is a thoughtful listener and no matter how much stuff she gains on Gaia, she never lets it get to her head. Maybe because she's a *gasp* real grown-up! eek (but true ladies never reveal their actual age.) So watch your mouth, kids. (Nah, just kidding. She's cool.) Moonie will always kindly answer your questions and point you in the right direction if you're new to the thread.



User Image

Keynir:

Key has exams in April, so he may be too busy to help with some of the more involved things, but rest assured that he's still someone to be reckoned with. Bad attitudes, spamming, and unnecessary drama-creation are some ways to get on his bad side. Aside from that, he's very nice and is always willing to have a conversation with you. Be careful, he gets weird when he's hyper.
I met Key the same time as Moonie, and they know each other IRL. They live in Europe, too, so that gives us some more timezones covered. mrgreen



User Image

TomorrowsQueen:

Queenie is a real-life friend of mine that I've known for five or six years. We went to the same high school for awhile and now she's my roommate. Queenie is busy with school and exams, but she is also the strongest disciplinary force of the team. This is one chick you don't want to cross. Queenie loves musicals and will chat about just about anything. She is also one of the co-owners of our charity on Gaia, Demon Wings|Angel Heart (aka DWAH). All of my thread mods are regulars there, so feel free to join us anytime for random awesomeness. blaugh


User Image

Lord of the pumpkins:

Jack here is a strange fellow with a big heart. Yes, he is "that" Pumpkin King, but don't worry: he won't punch your Santa Claus robot. Or will he? ninja Another awesome regular at DWAH, he is prone to donation attacks but don't ever thank him. He hates that. And if you beg from him, well... twisted



User Image

Kayi Eto:

Kayi is another RL friend that I've known for a long time. Known by everyone as Chibi, she is a great listener and a sauve Marketplace-er. Though she hasn't been a member of Gaia for very long, she definitely has her act together and is as capable of modding the thread as anyone else. She is another one you have to watch out when hyper, because that's when she turns really weird. eek

Teams


Here is a list of each team and who is on them! If you are undecided or don't care which team you are on, try going for whichever one needs more people. Those listed in bold are thread mods.

If you want to join a team, just post in the thread telling us which one you want to be on. blaugh

If you want to be on more than one team, that's fine, but please pick only one for the contest! Tell me in the thread which team that is, so I can add your name to ONE list!

We also have a place for you if your cancer of interest is not on the list. Go to the guild for more details.
