A worthy cause Bloomtools is so happy to support
The Sammy D Foundation was created by husband and wife team Nat Cook and Neil Davis after their 17-year old son Sam was fatally king hit while trying to intervene in a fight at a party in 2008.
Out of tragedy, the small but committed Sammy D Foundation team has worked with the South Australian community and businesses to deliver its core programs; Impact, Connect and Party Wise to nearly 15,000 young people in metropolitan and regional locations.
How is the Sammy D Foundation reducing violence?
The Sammy D Foundation is a harm prevention charity focussing on promoting healthy lifestyles, providing opportunities for success, nurturing mateship, bringing families closer together and raising awareness of harm-causing behaviour. The Foundation has a strong focus on encouraging youth to realise their potential and empower them to make safe and positive life choices. Every young person deserves to be loved, supported and protected, with many needing guidance and positive role modelling to equip them with the skills and confidence needed to avoid dangerous situations, and knowing how to respond if confronted.
