Golden Casket supports Daniel Morcombe Foundation's mission to keep kids safe

Published:

Golden Casket has pledged $300,000 to Daniel Morcombe Foundation to help the organisation continue its important work educating children about their personal safety.
 
The Golden Casket contribution will be used to expand the reach of the Foundation's child safety education programs and events, assistance to victims of crime, and support for the families of missing persons.
 
The donation from Golden Casket, part of the Lott – Australia's official lotteries, has been funded from unclaimed prize money.

Golden Casket General Manager Andrew Shepherd said Daniel Morcombe Foundation continued to play a vital role in elevating awareness of child safety across Australia.
 
"Through the hard work of Bruce and Denise Morcombe and the Foundation, our communities and our families have a greater understanding of how we can protect children from harm and better assist victims of crime," he said.
 
"From funding hospital infrastructure to medical research, we have a long track record of contributing to initiatives that support healthy and happy families, and our contribution to Daniel Morcombe Foundation continues this."
 
Mr Shepherd said Golden Casket also planned to work closely with Police and Daniel Morcombe Foundation to extend its support of the Amber Alert system.
 
"For more than a decade, Golden Casket has supported the Amber Alert system by broadcasting urgent information about missing or abducted children to the general community through our network of 900 retail outlets across Queensland," he said.
 
"We're now looking to further this role as a secondary alert partner across other states and territories under the Lott brand to help bolster the nation's child safety net."
 
Daniel Morcombe Foundation co-founder Bruce Morcombe said he was "over the moon" with the generous donation from Lott.
 
"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." he said.
 
"These funds will secure programs of world's best practice to keep kids safe. It's so exciting."

The Daniel Morcombe Foundation was created in 2005 by Bruce and Denise Morcombe after their 13-year-old son Daniel was abducted from a Sunshine Coast bus stop in 2003.
 
Since creating the Foundation, Daniel's parents 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 assisting young victims of crime.
 
The sign of Australia's Official Lotteries, the Lott unites Australian lottery brands including Tatts, NSW Lotteries, Golden Casket and SA Lotteries under one banner. It operates and markets Australia's leading lottery games customers know and love creating everyday winners, winning every day.
 
In the 12 months to 30 June 2018, 74 million winners took home a total of $2.7 billion in prize money from their favourite games which include Saturday Gold Lotto, Monday and Wednesday Gold Lotto, Powerball, Oz Lotto, Set for Life, Lucky Lotteries, Keno and Instant Scratch-Its.
