The Alannah and Madeline Foundation has partnered with John Caldwell and the AFL to stand up for our kids.
At a special event held yesterday the message was simple: The number of school children bullied every fortnight in Australia could fill the MCG. The unimaginable number is sadly true. Almost one million Australian children have lived with violence in their home. We all have a responsibility to keep our kids safe.
From the 29 June to 5 July The Alannah and Madeline foundation are urging all Australians to stand up for our kids and take a pledge to keep our children safe from violence.
