While Ivor Kempson of Gympie Window Tinting and Sign Services does not claim to have started the craze, he is more than happy to get on board and support the message behind it.

“No one can go to the Dawn Service this year, but we can provide this service so that households can keep up the tradition of remembering the sacrifice of the fallen,” he said.

He has three designs and charges just $7 each ($1.50 of which goes to the RSL) for the stickers which people can then attach to their bin.

“I’m not making any money out of it, but it’s just the whole spirit of it,” Mr Kempson said.
