RSL Queensland – ANZAC Day 2020

Lighting up a different ANZAC Day.

Aruga’s original task was to raise awareness and encourage participation in ANZAC Day services on behalf of RSL Queensland. Then COVID-19 put a halt to public gatherings. So Aruga pivoted to help RSL Queensland inspire Aussies to embrace a different kind of ANZAC Day at home with the Light up the Dawn initiative. Within a short timeframe, we secured widespread national coverage and made RSL Queensland State President Tony Ferris the authoritative voice on ANZAC Day 2020.
