Helping Those Who Help Our Veterans and Families

Every Australia in the Great War uniformed bear donated to schools is helping local charities support our veterans and their families.

Want to do more? Register here if you are a military or community Not for Profit organisation wanting to participate in the Bears to Schools program. You can share in the financial support when you encourage your community to donate bears to your local primary schools.

Returned and Services League of Australia (RSL)

The RSL was founded in 1916 by Australian soldiers coming home from the Great War. It has continued to help generations of veterans and their families by offering care, financial assistance, and advocacy. It is also central to annual commemorative services and activities that help Australians remember our Fallen. Every year RSL Sub Branches in each state and territory play an important role in helping schools and communities commemorate Anzac Day and Remembrance Day (Armistice).

The National Servicemen’s Association represents and cares for veterans conscripted to serve Australia under the National Service Schemes of 1951-1959 and 1964-1972 (the Vietnam years). The charity represents its member’s interests and provides practical support to veterans and families, particularly the work of Sub Branches helping local veterans with home care, support services, and medical transportation.
