I have experienced first-hand the damage that abuse causes. It affects your whole life. Thankyou to the Foundation for making a difference.
I have fostered many children and it makes such a difference to supporting a child when you get real help.
I donated as a way of doing something for these children, and the Foundation seems to do a lot of the really tough work.
We think sponsoring or helping an abused child to get their childhood back is worthwhile.

If $25 a month helps I am happy to give it. I checked the Foundation out and I think it's a real support for children - keep up the good work!
Thankyou! I am glad the Australian Childhood Foundation exists, otherwise where would these children find a voice and support?

Dads are important people and we have a big role to play in keeping children safe.
I am 15 and I think children need to be cared for and loved.
I am glad the government has announced this Royal Commission; this is a big issue, and it needs a big commitment.

Children learn by example. Loving, caring parents raise loving, caring kids.
Childhood should be fun, and free from these terrible things that happen to kids.
I don't think I could do this job every day - it would be heartbreaking - but I'm glad the Foundation does.
I have loving parents, and I really feel sad for children who have not had the support and love I have.
I hated counselling at first, but it helped a lot and still does. I am not as angry.
I believe children should have a childhood. They need our attention and our support - that's why I am an Ambassador.

We need to keep childhood safe for everyone. This kind of trauma impacts not only on childhood, but on who we become as adults, too.
I don't understand how some people could treat their children the way they do. That's why I'm happy to be a supporter of your Foundation.
Glad to support an organisation that tackles the issue of child abuse from all angles and is prepared to do the hard work.
I am so glad you are bringing the issue of child abuse out of the shadows. Thankyou for speaking up.
I hope that with the Royal Commission, people now start to hear what you have been saying for years - we adults must keep children safe.
It is my wish that all children are kept safe from harm. That is why I support the Foundation.
I so wish there had been someone like the Australian Childhood Foundation to help me when I was a child. I still struggle every day.
I am so pleased to be able to support the Foundation and I urge everyone who cares about the safety of children to do the same.
I wish I had giant angel wings to protect all abused children and make them happy and safe ... please never give up on them.
The Australian Childhood Foundation is the best!
I look back at my own childhood as a great time, and it's heartbreaking to know not everyone can do that.
I have seen this first-hand.The outcome was utterly devastating.No more children need to go through this. We need to speak up for them.
As a victim, to see an organisation like this that I never knew existed, my goal is to get the word out. Much love to you all xx
Proud to support this wonderful Foundation, they do an amazing job!
I'm Brazilian and I follow the Foundation's work from afar; think it's heavenly. Wish I could, one day, do what you guys do

Talking makes things a little better in my head. I feel empowered when I finish a session.

I will be thinking of little Tanilla Deaves when I put the angel at the top of my Christmas tree. If we all give something we might bring a bit of happiness to a child that is 'lucky' to be alive this Christmas.
Protecting children is something we can all do.
As a teacher of terribly disadvantaged children, the adage 'it takes a village to raise a child' has never been truer. Our youth is everyone's responsibility.
