Australians and New Zealanders are being called to commemorate ANZAC Day by standing at the end of their driveways for a minute of silence.
A different kind of dawn service will be held in remembrance after ANZAC Day events were cancelled on Wednesday due to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.
The movement was started by Justin Wilbur, the son of a Vietnam War veteran, 7 News reported.
He set up a Facebook group on Tuesday called Aussies & Kiwis for ANZACS to promote his idea and it has already amassed over 109,000 members.
He is encouraging people to come together in their driveways at 5:55am or 6am on Saturday, April 25.
Wilbur says he is humbled and overwhelmed that his idea took off.
"Nothing's going to stop us from showing them the respect they deserve," he told 7 News.
Wilbur wrote in a post to the page saying he is getting an app made which will feature a virtual candle and play The Last Post.
It will be able to be downloaded for free and should be finished at least two weeks before ANZAC Day.
RSL Queensland State President Tony Ferris said in a statement the display of solidarity would send a powerful message of support to the defence community.
"This is an idea that has gathered momentum in social media, and we agree it's a brilliant way to collectively honour the dedication, commitment and sacrifice of our service people – even though we cannot physically be together."
He says qualities evoked by the ANZAC spirit including humour, endurance, courage, ingenuity and mateship, were more important than ever during the COVID-19 pandemic.
