The Canadian Cancer Society (CCS) is partnering with musical duo Choir! Choir! Choir! for a virtual sing-a-thon in support of the Canadian Cancer Society Daffodil Campaign. Taking place live on Facebook and YouTube on Saturday, April 11 at 3pm ET, the event connects people from around the world to have fun, spread hope, and unite through song. You can RSVP here to the event through Facebook.

Choir! Choir! Choir! creative directors Nobu Adilman and Daveed Goldman provide digital lyric sheets and guide participants through a set list of inspiring selections. From their own homes, families, self-isolators, and singers of all stripes will sing along with the duo as part of this special virtual singing event. Throughout the event, donations will be collected for CCS via Facebook and YouTube. Donations will also be collected leading up to and after the event, all of which will help Canadians impacted by cancer.

Funds raised through the Daffodil Campaign change lives for the better. Now more than ever during the COVID-19 outbreak, our digital and phone support programs are critical to the people we serve, providing information, reducing anxiety, and limiting feelings of isolation. Currently, more than 1 million people in the country are living with and beyond cancer and could have compromised immune systems that puts them at a greater risk of more serious outcomes if they contract COVID-19.

In light of the global pandemic, and in order to put the well-being and safety of people affected by cancer, and our collective of supporters, volunteers and staff first, we decided to replace traditional offline and in-person Daffodil Campaign activities like our upcoming GTA Choir! Choir! Choir! event with a virtual model.

Since mid-March, Choir! Choir! Choir! has been hosting Social Distan-Sing-A-Long events on their Facebook page. More than 100,000 people from several countries joined their inaugural online event on March 21.
