A Message from Walter Mikac AM

I am so proud of the Alannah & Madeline Foundation as it is a daily reminder of the good will and love that is generated when a tragic situation occurs.

It would make my daughters smile to know they are being remembered in such a helpful and beautiful way."

When the Foundation started as a baby in 1997, I hoped it would help children who couldn't understand why these bad or violent things happened to them. Today, the Foundation is blossoming on all fronts.

All in all, the Alannah & Madeline Foundation has achieved things I couldn't have dreamt of when we had our first formal meeting at the offices of 3AW in 1997.

The Foundation would not have got to where it is today without the tireless work of all involved. To the volunteers, staff, board, sponsors, families and friends who have contributed, I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart.
