About the Foundation

You are invited to join with us in a day which focuses on Child Safety Awareness.
Now in its 8th year, Day for Daniel continues to grow on a National scale and is recognised as Australia’s largest participation event of its type.
The Daniel Morcombe Foundation was established in 2005 by Denise and Bruce Morcombe following the tragic abduction and suspected murder of their 13 year old son Daniel in December 2003.
To promote the Foundation’s aims of making the world a safer place for our children, an annual awareness Day for Daniel is held, involving schools and local communities. In 2012 over 1,000,000 people are expected to articipate Australia wide.
A variety of activities are suggested and these range from a talk about internet safety in class, a presentation by a school based police officer, completing an interactive educational program like ‘Being Safety Smart”, watching our DVD titled ‘Foundation Red’ or participate in a Community Walk. These education activities are designed to provide life skills for children in a fun and informative manner without the fear factor.
We encourage that a red flavour be incorporated in the day – a colour which links Daniel’s story in a discrete way to the importance of Child Safety Education.
Day for Daniel is not a memorial day – it is a learning day for our Children.
Please support us in this initiative.
