DIGGER is more than a plushie; he's a plushie pup with a purpose.

Doing good is DIGGER’S main mission. With every plushie purchased, a portion of proceeds will go directly towards the Kookaburra Kids Program.
Through the Plushie Program, we will donate $30 from every sale.


Our Pawtners for 2024

Since 2022, Australian Defence Apparel (ADA), has been a proud partner of the Australian Kookaburra Kids Foundation. Kookaburra Kids focuses on providing evidence-based social and fun activity programs for young people from Defence families impacted by family mental illness. The program aims to empower kids to build resilience, lifelong knowledge, and abilities to reach their potential.

Children attend an annual camp and a series of fun activity days featuring mental health education. Every DIGGER that goes to a good home will ensure that more kids have the opportunity to join these life-changing programs.

To date, ADA has donated $75,000 towards 
the Kookaburra Kids Program.

Renée Coffey

CEO, Australian Kookaburra Kids Foundation

“We are so excited to continue our partnership with Australian Defence Apparel. To date, ADA has generously contributed $75,000 to Australian Kookaburra Kids Foundation programs, providing crucial support to young people in families impacted by mental illness.

As well as ADA’s unwavering support of Kookaburra Kids, this initiative marks a significant step forward in recognising the invaluable service of our heroic four-legged soldiers, who stand alongside their courageous human counterparts. We eagerly anticipate the launch of this new endeavour in 2024, envisioning Digger, a beloved mascot, bringing joy to the hearts of many fortunate young people.”
