Dolly’s Dream was created by Tick and Kate Everett following the shattering loss of their 14-year-old daughter, Dolly, to suicide, after ongoing bullying. Tick and Kate’s goal is to prevent other families walking this road. Their goal is to change cultures and behaviours to prevent bullying, by increasing understanding of the impact of bullying, anxiety, depression, and youth suicide and by providing support to parents.
The Alannah & Madeline Foundation shares this goal and has a long and successful track record of creating a safer online and offline world for children.
United by this common purpose, they formed a partnership to educate parents on the problems of bullying, its effects and how to deal with it; and then to empower children and adults to recognise bullying when it occurs and have the confidence and skills to stand up and talk about it.
Dolly’s Dream (ABN 96 514 115 810) sits within the Alannah & Madeline Foundation, which is a registered charity with the Australian Charities and Not for Profits Commission (ACNC) and is endorsed as an Item 1 Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR).
