Amy ‘Dolly’ Everett was a victim of bullying who ended her life at just 14 years of age. Dolly’s Dream has been established by her parents, Kate and Tick and her sister Meg along with family and friends in remembrance of Dolly. It aims to change the impact of bullying and cyber bullying on the lives of other children.
In order to assist Kate and Tick with their vision for Dolly’s Dream, they decided to partner with the Foundation as one of Australia’s best known and trusted children’s charities, to ensure that Dolly's Dream will help prevent other children being affected by bullying.
The Foundation’s CEO, Lesley Podesta, said she was honoured to support the Everetts and help them achieve their dream for Dolly.
“Through supporting Dolly’s Dream, we will continue to change the culture of bullying in Australian schools and our community,” Ms Podesta said.
Every child deserves to be kept safe from violence and bullying."
