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!!!!

About 5000 Poppies

The 5000 Poppies Project is a community tribute of respect and remembrance for our servicemen and women, their families and their communities. Created in 2013 by sisters in law Lynn Berry and Margaret Knight in honour of their fathers service in WWII, the project has been closely aligned with the Centenary of Anzac 2014 to 2018, and has consisted of a number of small and large scale installations made from handcrafted poppies from many thousands of contributors from all over the world.

    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
