Australian Childhood Foundation

With the purchase of a 'Pocket Hug,' a gesture of love and care, 100% of the profits will be dedicated to supporting the Australian Childhood Foundation.


The Australian Childhood Foundation uses the knowledge of neuroscience to help children recover from the pain of abuse and neglect.

Advocating for the importance of nurturing children through love, care, and connection is deeply significant to me due to a myriad of personal beliefs and experiences that have shaped my perspective:

Personal Values: I firmly believe that every child deserves to grow up in an environment where they are cherished and supported. Upholding the values of compassion, empathy, and kindness is essential to creating a world where children can flourish emotionally, mentally, and socially.

Early Experiences: Reflecting on my own upbringing and the impact of loving and caring relationships, I recognise the profound influence these connections have on shaping one's sense of self-worth and resilience. I want every child to have the opportunity to experience the transformative power of such relationships.

Empathy: Having interacted with children as a teacher, I've witnessed firsthand the incredible difference that nurturing love and care can make in their lives. Empathising with their needs and the impact of positive relationships fuels my desire to advocate for these values.

Long-Term Impact: Understanding the enduring effects of early experiences on a person's life, I am dedicated to promoting the idea that nurturing children today lays the foundation for a healthier and happier society in the future. By investing in their emotional well-being, we can contribute to a more compassionate world.

Social Responsibility: Advocating for love, care, and connection aligns with my belief in social responsibility. In essence, it's about recognising the immense potential we hold as caregivers, parents, and society at large. By prioritising emotional well-being and fostering meaningful connections, we sow the seeds for a future where empathy thrives and understanding prevails.
