Grow a brighter future with our national Amaryllis Campaign!
It’s that time of year again! We are very excited to kick off the 2019 Amaryllis Campaign. Our goal this year is to sell 22,000 bulbs and we are hoping that, together, we can achieve this and inspire hope in as many lives as possible!
The Amaryllis is the signature flower of the Huntington Society of Canada. We have Amaryllis volunteers across the country who sell bulb kits to help raise vital funds for our programs in research, services and education. Every year, around 20,000 Amaryllis bulbs bloom coast to coast, inspiring hope for a world free of Huntington disease (HD). Since 1985, HSC’s dedicated volunteers have raised well over $5 million in support of HD.
Our Amaryllis kits are priced at $15.00. Each kit is packaged in a lovely gift box which contains one high-quality orange sovereign bulb, growing instructions, soil, a planting pot, a plant stake and a saucer. They come in cases of 12 kits and are shipped across Canada. Orders can be made at any time, with delivery dates from October to December.
You can plant your bulbs immediately when you receive them or you can store them in a cool, dry place for later. Many people like to give them out as holiday gifts! Gorgeous orange-red blooms will appear approximately 6-8 weeks after planting.
Each kit we sell brings us one step closer to finding a treatment for Huntington disease. Every Amaryllis bulb blooming in someone’s home or business holds the promise of a world free from HD.
Thank you for your tremendous and continuing support and for helping us to Inspire Hope!
