Proudly Supporting the Australian Childhood Foundation
Bon Appetee is proudly supporting the The Australian Childhood Foundation. At Bon Appetee we believe that children truly are our future and NO child should be robbed of a safe, secure and loving childhood. From every purchase made, $2 will be donated to this wonderful foundation. Our goal is to not only help financially but also to spread awareness of the work that they do. We hope that thanks to you, and the wonderful work of The Australian Childhood Foundation we will be able to help make a difference in the lives of children who need it.
About The Australian Childhood Foundation:
Over the past ten years, the number of reported cases of child abuse has more than doubled in Australia. In 2009-2010, there were 286,437 reports of child abuse and neglect across Australia. That equates to 786 new reports per day, or one new report of abuse or neglect every two minutes.
The Australian Childhood Foundation is a national non-profit organisation committed to the prevention of child abuse and reducing the harm it does to children, families and the community. The trauma of abuse and neglect leaves devastating scars on children. It robs them of their childhoods. It steals their self-confidence, their sense of safety, their carefree innocence, their ability to trust others, even their ability to learn. Through our range of specialist counselling services, the Australian Childhood Foundation works to help children recover and reclaim their lost childhoods.
Preventing abuse is always a abetter solution than repairing the damage after it has been done, and we also work to inspire and support vulnerable parents, to help them understand children’s behaviour, and to strengthen their ability to raise happy and confident children.
