The first-ever digital Remembrance Day Poppy is being supported by a number of Canadian personalities, including Margaret Atwood, Don Cherry, Ron MacLean, Sandra Oh, Justin Bieber and the Nation Hockey League Players' Association.

Donations are made through the campaign by purchasing a poppy at any local store where they are located, or through mail orders.
Publicity material for the digital poppy featured endorsements by celebrity Canadians including Margaret Atwood, Ashley Callingbull and Don Cherry, who dedicated his poppy to his great uncle, Sgt. Thomas William MacKenzie.
