The Royal Canadian Legion’s annual Poppy Campaign, honouring those who have fought and served for Canada, begins today.

The legion’s largest fundraising campaign, money raised through donations to poppy boxes goes directly toward supporting Canadian veterans and their families.

Along with giving through poppy boxes, Canadians can now also text 20222 from their mobile devices to make a donation.

More than 21 million poppies are distributed each year in Canada.
