Green Roads Goes Red for Daniel
April 20, 2022
Last month the Daniel Morcombe Foundation held its 17th Dance for Daniel. The team from Alex Fraser were proud to attend the annual charity event in their finest red threads, helping to raise much needed funds for the Queensland charity and awareness of what the community and businesses can do to support child protection nationwide.
Alex Fraser’s Queensland Area Manager John Wanneck, Sales Manager Nicole Bates, Projects Officer Kirsten Finney, Recycling GM Sean McCormick and Communication Manager Cara Spencer attended along with Hanson’s National CSR Manager Mark Smith, and National Sustainability Manager Brendan Liveris. The team were moved by the evening’s Impact Speaker, Kelly Humphries, who shared her personal story to a standing ovation, and reaffirmed the importance of the foundation’s mission – to build a future where all children and young people are free from harm and abuse.
Recycling GM Sean McCormick said the Daniel Morcombe Foundation’s vision aligned with Alex Fraser’s core values.
“We’re proud to support such an important cause, and one so close to the hearts of our Brisbane community. In our business, there’s nothing more important than keeping people safe, and we’re so grateful to the Daniel Morcombe Foundation for the critical work they do to keep kids safe all around the country!”
“It was great to hear that the Daniel Morcombe Foundation raised more than $100,000 on the night, which go back into their work in child safety education and supporting victims of crime, especially children. We look forward to continuing our support of such an important cause.”
On the night, the Minister for Home Affairs, the Hon. Karen Andrews announced that the Daniel Morcombe Foundation had been successful in its Proceeds of Crime Act funding applications of $3.4 million over the next four years to deliver the ‘Bright Futures Program’.
This program will ensure Australian children learn crucial safety skills, including in an online environment, and is another important step in keeping children safe.
