Struggling veterans need your help. 

On Thursday 5 November only, donations will be matched by our partners to help us reach our goal of $100,000.

All gifts will directly fund over 50 new programs, targeting the everyday challenges that thousands of veterans face, including anxiety, depression, addiction, and chronic pain.

Donate $78 and watch it become $156, enough to enable two veterans, instead of one, to take part in a 90-minute recovery program.

With mental health issues and suicide rates expected to increase, veterans need access to support, before it too late. We need your help us raise $100,000 for these new vital services.

“You might save a life. If someone is looking for a reason not to be here, Mates4Mates shows them that life is worth it.” — Steve, veteran

Your support will make a difference. There isn’t a one-size-fits-all approach to recovery, so these programs will ensure veterans and families can find the right support that meets their needs and situation now.

No mate left behind.

As an RSL Welfare Advocate, I'm always thinking of you and how you can be assisted to regain some perspective on life after a tour. You are all heroes and worthy of our love and respect now, and in the future.
