“Daniel’s legacy remains strong! The work at the Daniel Morcombe Foundation is guaranteed to be better resourced, enabling us to deliver cutting edge child safety education for children, parents and carers,” Mr Morcombe said.
“These funds will secure programs of world’s best practice to keep kids safe. It’s so exciting.”
Bruce and Denise Morcombe started The Daniel Morcombe Foundation in 2005, after their 13-year-old son Daniel was abducted from a Sunshine Coast bus stop two years earlier.
Since creating the Foundation, Mr and Mrs Morcombe have worked tirelessly to provide Australian children with the education, protection and support to be safe from abuse and risk of harm.
The Foundation aims to remember Daniel’s legacy and assist young victims of crime.
