Planting flowers could help fight a chronic disorder.
The Parkinson Society of Canada is asking people to purchase tulip bulbs and plant them to raise money for the society, said Andre Motuzas, special events co-ordinator for the Parkinson Society of Canada.
For $50,100, bulbs can be purchased to be planted by organizations on their property or donated to local parks. Ten bulbs can also be purchased by individuals for $5, Motuzas said.
"Volunteers are needed to aid with delivering bulbs," Motuzas said, noting other volunteer jobs include helping with mailings and events.

Make way for United Way
With the launch of a new United Way campaign, Western is hoping to raise big bucks for charity.
"October is United Way month and there are a number of fundraising events planned," said Lil Chieh, VP-student affairs for the University Students' Council.
The campus United Way fundraising campaign will officially begin on Oct. 22, Chieh said, noting they hoped the university community would raise $285,000 as a whole.
"[There will be] pumpkin festivities near the end of October, which will lead to a Halloween party at the Wave," she said, adding all proceeds will go to United Way.
