Marian’s heartfelt decision to help those without a voice
Marian is a very special supporter of the Australian Childhood Foundation. She has decided to remember the Foundation in her Will. We asked her to tell you about the very personal reasons for her decision.
“I had a difficult childhood, and it left deep scars. When I was 23, my whole world collapsed. It all became too much to deal with and it was only then that I started counselling. Forty-six years later, I’m still in counselling today. It has been such a vital part of my healing and recovery. When I was thinking about what to put in my Will,
I looked back at my own childhood. I have a deep understanding of what abused children have to face, and I wouldn’t want anyone to go through what I did. I have also experienced first-hand how counselling can heal the scars of abuse. For me, this happened much later in life. When a child has encountered violence, I believe that early intervention is key. I know that the Foundation works with young children early, to stop the cycle of abuse from snowballing. That’s why, after making provisions for my family, I decided to leave a gift to the Foundation in my Will. It is very important to me that my money is used to support something I am passionate about—and that it goes to a good place.”
“I can’t think of anything better than helping children who cannot speak for themselves.”
