Do some good – buy a Legacy Songs Badge

Legacy Songs BadgeThis week is Legacy Week, the big week on the calendar for the long-running charity, Legacy. What do Legacy do?

Legacy is dedicated to caring for the families of deceased veterans. Today Legacy’s caring and compassionate service assists over 100,000 widows and 1900 children and dependants with a disability. Legacy is a voluntary organisation supported by veterans, servicemen and women, and volunteers drawn from all walks of life. Our support and services now extend to include the dependants of members of today’s Australian Defence Force who lose their lives as a result of their military service.

At the moment Legacy is supporting over 100,000 widows and 1900 children and dependants with a disability.

Legacy Week began last Sunday, and until September 10, in association with Telstra, it has a new techy option to add to its its regular array of badges to raise money.

It’s called the Legacy Song Badge, and is available in two forms – an actual MP3-holding button badge, or a virtual badge. Either way, buy the Legacy Song Badge, and you receive these five songs:

  • I Was Only 19 – The Herd
  • No Second Prize – Jimmy Barnes
  • Friend in the Field – Art vs. Science
  • Rabbit Song – Boy & Bear
  • Nobody Sees – Powderfinger

The ‘actual’ badge costs $15, and is available from now until Saturday 10 September at “selected Telstra Stores including George Street (Sydney) Bourke Street (Melbourne), Hay Street (Perth) and Queen Street (Brisbane)”. I suspect selected Telstra stores means stores owned and run by Telstra, rather than agency or franchise stores.

The virtual Legacy Songs Badge is downloadable from Telstra’s Legacy Page, and costs $10.
