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.  Proceeds go directly to your nominated participating charity.

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. Very 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).
