THE DAFFODIL MOVEMENT
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 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.

One of the most unique things about TDM is that we very much emphasize diverse and intelligent awareness in order to make people see just how widespread and serious this disease is. We stress that awareness is more than just knowing, it's understanding. We do this with different cancer teams that compete during the event as they talk and learn more about the type they're representing. TDM 2011 featured 11 different teams, each representing a different type of cancer.

THE GUILD
The guild is where the awareness teams can meet up and chat. It's also where we hold contests and stuff. Please send your join request or post in the forums any time! We'd love to have you. ;3 In the off season, when April's over and the Movement's not going on, the guild is still a place where people can come make dedicated memorials to their loved ones in the Memorial forum, or participate in random chatter in the Chat forum.

CONTESTS
Current reigning spirit champs: Usually there is one team chosen as the winner of the spirit contest. Due to some unforeseen circumstances I would like to thank all the team captains we had this year. Thank you for all you did!

TDM'S SLOGAN

For everyone that's ever been affected by cancer; the friends, the family, the lives torn asunder. For every fallen tear, every fear, every sleepless night, every dollar raised and every mile walked, there's hope.

The only cure for grief is love.

To all those lost, rest in peace. We will never forget you.


There is no form to join. However, as many people like to explain their reasons for joining, the guild is not set to auto-accept. If you do not want to explain, you don't have to. :3

Please do not donate to the guild. If you'd like to donate, send donations to the guild mule The Daffodil Movement.
