A heartfelt thank you to our regular donors 🧡 We asked Amanda a couple questions as to why she's a regular donor. Why does this cause matter to you? Because we should be growing our kids into confident secure adults, we have to guard them from the monsters in the world. It doesn’t matter if they are your own or your neighbours, children must be kept safe and looked after. What would you like to pass on to future generations? That they are valuable, circumstances don’t make you, you do.

The environment children live in highly impacts their emotional wellbeing. Domestic violence makes an impact far deeper than the immediately obvious. This can then impact their social skills and interaction amongst other children. There is support and healing available. Help us defend childhood by following the link in our bio.

Jill - 6 years old. Jill drew herself and her brother under a rainbow after six months of counselling. She had watched her mother overdose on heroin. Under the rainbow, “yucky things” did not happen to her any more. She always wanted to be close to her brother, Charlie. Under the rainbow, she could play and have fun for as long as she wanted. The Foundation works to restore the lives of children, just like Jill and relies on your donations to make a difference. Please donate:

TRACEY - 8 years old. This is a castle where a princess lives. Beautiful flowers and sunshine. All the animals once lived in the castle with the princess, but they were made to go away. They went to live in ponds outside the castle, but all eventually died. A snake, 2 ducks and a frog. The princess in the picture is sad and lonely. Tracey has suffered psychological abuse as a result of long term rejection by her parents.
