7 Days to Pledge

Good morning poppy makers and friends …

This time next week we will know if we have done the impossible …. raised $40,000 in pledges in just seven days to get us over the line with our crowdfunding initiative.

We are still at less than slightly less than 20% of our target, so if you are sitting on the fence … this is your big chance to support our wonderful grassroots, made by hand with love project …

It is our way of showing honour, respect and remembrance in a very visual way … please sponsor a poppy and ask all your friends family and colleagues to do the same.


Seven days …. $40,000

We can do this!!!!

    I do not know whether I missed something but can you tell me what the money is being raised for please.

    I have already made hundreds of poppies and I supplied all the wool. Is that what the money is for??

      Hi Olivia,
      We are fundraising to cover the cost of mounting the display, transport and storage for the duration of the centenary.
      It’s quite a sum, I realise … When we started the project … we expected to have around 5000 Poppies … but it has grown to over 100,000 poppies over the two years of the project … and so MUCH more complex than the original expectation. We are incredibly grateful for your support making poppies and there is no expectation on you to donate. It is a choice.
      Warm regards,
      Lynn Berry
