ANZAC Day is a special day for Australians and New Zealanders alike, a day when we come together to honour the brave men and women who have served in our armed forces, past and present. It’s a day of remembrance, reflection and gratitude, where we pay tribute to those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedoms and way of life.
One of the most iconic symbols of ANZAC Day is the poppy. These beautiful red flowers have become synonymous with the day, representing the bloodshed of the soldiers who fought in World War I, and the sacrifice they made for their country.
By purchasing a poppy, we can show our support for veterans and their families and help to ensure that they receive the assistance they need. The funds raised through the sale of poppies go towards a range of services and support programs, including counselling, employment assistance, and financial aid. Donations of $2 or more are tax-deductible too!
“Funds raised by the Poppy Appeal and other appeals go to funding our permanent team of Advocates, a service to veterans to enable them to access their rightful entitlements.”– Jeff Jackson OAM RSL Victoria Compensation & Welfare Support Manager
This ANZAC Day, we encourage everyone to wear a poppy and show their sup port for our veterans. By doing so, we are not only honouring their sacrifice, but also helping to ensure that they receive the support they deserve.
It’s important to remember that the impact of war doesn’t end when the fighting stops. For many veterans, the physical and emotional scars can last a lifetime. By supporting organisations that aid veterans, we can help to ensure that they receive the care and support they need to live happy and fulfilling lives.
So, this ANZAC Day, let’s all take a moment to reflect on the sacrifice made by our veterans, and show our support by purchasing a poppy. It’s a small gesture that can make a big difference in the lives of those who have served our country. Lest We Forget
Have a great day and buy a poppy!
