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.
