Poppy Day - Street Appeal

Start Time: 12:00:00 AM

Location:

Poppy Day is the RSA's annual street appeal.
Keep an eye out for our collectors and please give generously.

2022 marks 100 years of the RSA's Poppy Appeal.

This year, the RSA's Poppy Campaign runs throughout the month of April, with our most visible collection being the Poppy Day street appeal on 22 April.

Donations received from the RSA's Poppy Campaign go directly towards funding support services for New Zealand's veterans.

This year's campaign hopes to raise awareness of our younger veterans.

In the last 30 years, New Zealand has created over 30,000 veterans under the age of 50. Serving in areas such as Africa, Bosnia, Timor Leste, Afghanistan and Iraq, these veterans come with different and often more complex support needs, and there is far less understanding in society of how their service might have affected them.
