The 25th of April is ANZAC Day. This is the day of rememberance for members of the militaries of Australia and New Zealand who lost their lives in service. It was spawned by the landings at Gallipoli on this date in 1915 which saw grievous losses suffered by the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps. The day is also observed in Tonga, Pitcairn, Niue and the Cook Islands.
Our commemoration of this is going to be a charity drive, to take place over the weekend, starting April 27 11.00 UTC and ending April 30 11.00 UTC. To convert this to your local timezone, use this Time Zone Converter.

The charity we have selected is Legacy. This organization provides support to the families of fallen Australian servicemen, which we hope you will agree is appropriate for the occasion.
This event will be carried out in conjunction with the ANZAC Day Charity Drive special.
