Strive To Be Kind Day
Friday July 31, 2020
Strive To Be Kind Day (in memory of Allison Baden-Clay) is held on the last Friday of each July. On this day, the Story Bridge and Victoria Bridge light in yellow to remember Allison and her kindness. She was a very generous and loving soul who always put others before herself.
Strive To Be Kind Day was initially introduced in 2012 so that the community could come together to show each other a little more kindness. Respect, kindness and positivity are all things that we need more of and we encourage people to spend Strive To Be Kind Day and the month of July spreading kindness. Since its inception this wonderful day has gained enormous support with over 100 Queensland State and Private schools, businesses and shopping centres participating.
The annual Strive To Be Kind Lunch is also held on Strive To Be Kind Day. The 2019 lunch saw over 270 people in attendance, all wearing yellow to show their support. Below is a video of the day, which was captured for us by the awesome team at Grizzly Bear Media.
You can support The Allison Baden-Clay Foundation by registering to sell ribbons throughout the month of July. The ribbons are sold at $2 each and all donations go to the Foundation and the development of programs which educate the community on the signs of domestic violence and the tactics to intervene effectively.
