Legacy Week Press Release


Legacy Week Badge Appeal
3 September - 8 September 2012


The Legacy Week Appeal aims to build awareness about the importance of Legacy’s work in the community. The campaign also hopes to raise much needed funds to assist the services that Legacy provides to 115,000 families of Australia’s deceased veterans.

Legacy is a unique Australian tradition which is born out of the trenches where a promise was made to a dying mate that “someone would look after the missus and kids.” Legacy is asking the Australian public to help Keep The Promise to the dependants of deceased veterans by buying a Badge or making a donation during Legacy Week.

Over 25,000 troops have been deployed overseas since 1999 and over 5,000 new widows of deceased veterans enrol with Legacy every year. We need the public’s assistance to ensure Legacy’s crucial services continue both now and into the future.

Legacy needs your support. You can do so by buying a badge, donating or even volunteering to participate in the appeal by selling Legacy badges in your local community.


The public has given wonderful support to the Appeal in the past and we hope that this will continue in 2012.
