Alannah & Madeline Foundation
The TANDEM team have generously donated hundreds of toothbrushes and boxes of toothpaste to go into Buddy Bags for the Alannah & Madeline Foundation.
Buddy Bags are backpacks filled with essential items, given to children who have had to leave an unsafe environment, often arriving at emergency accommodation with nothing but the clothes that they are wearing.
Alannah & Madeline Foundation Board member, Terry Hearity, said that through TANDEM’s support, hundreds of vulnerable children have been helped.
“I’d like to personally thank the TANDEM team for supporting the Alannah & Madeline Foundation, in particular the Buddy Bags which are given to children in refuges – we are very grateful.”
