Life is a Garden is an avid supporter of The Sunflower Fund and the amazing work they do. The fund’s biggest national campaign “Sunflower Day” will be celebrated on 15 September 2017, where we see what was previously known as ‘Bandana Day’ renewed and revitalised! Instead of bandanas, their new product the ‘Tube of Hope (TOPE)’ will be available for its second year running, at a cost of R25 each. The public are encouraged to show support for people fighting chronic blood conditions like Leukaemia and remember that “Hope begins with you!”

For many patients diagnosed with a blood disorder or blood cancer such as Leukaemia, their only chance of survival is finding a matching stem cell donor. We all have such a unique mix of DNA that finding a stem cell match is incredibly tough – for a patient, the chances of finding a match is 1 in 100,000! The more donors on the registry, the greater the chance of finding a match and giving someone’s child, parent or friend the hope of life. Visit The Sunflower Fund’s website here:

Visit your local participating GCA Garden Centre between 16 August and 15 September (ending on Sunflower Day), purchase any stickered product and help Life is a Garden help The Sunflower Fund – all proceeds will be donated to the fund. Also visit your local Pick n Pay Retailer and purchase your TOPE (Tube of Hope) only R25 in support of The Sunflower Fund.
