Meet Anne, another kind donor

in News

For Anne, supporting the Alannah & Madeline Foundation is all about helping children. That’s why she’s a long-time supporter who chooses to give a regular monthly gift.

Anne Keogh has been a supporter of the Alannah & Madeline Foundation since 1999. Anne, who was a teacher, has seen first-hand the impact of violence and trauma on young children. As she points out, “children are the innocent victims”.

Anne started donating regularly via a monthly gift to the Foundation to support the Buddy Bags program. She gave because she knew how important it was for children to have something new and their own when fleeing a violent and distressing situation.

As well as donations, Anne also contributed her expertise. In the early days of the program she provided input into the activity items included in the packs based on her experience teaching young children.

As the Foundation’s programs have expanded and developed, Anne has continued her valuable support through her regular monthly donations. She’s particularly interested in the cyber bullying prevention programs run by the Foundation. Anne is full of praise for the reach and quality of the programs provided by the Foundation.

As she says, “it’s good to know your money is going to effective programs that help children”.

Thanks to the kindness and generosity of donors like Anne, the Foundation continues to provide support and services to the most vulnerable children in our community.
