This week, we lodged and incorporated "The Thomas Kelly Youth Foundation" a not for profit charitable institution established and located in Australia.
Tom was killed after he was struck in the head in an unprovoked attack on Victoria Street in Kings Cross in July 2012. The Foundation is to honour Thomas - with an objective of making our streets and cities safer places through a number of key strategies.
The principal object of the Company is to reduce alcohol-related violence and anti-social behaviour amongst young people in Australia by raising community awareness and contributing to the formation of government regulation and industry practice.
The principal activity of the Company is the promotion of the prevention or the control of human behaviour that is harmful or abusive to human beings, including but not restricted to behaviour arising from substance abuse relating to alcohol consumption.
We will officially launch the foundation in 2013. Change will only be effected with the community having one voice. We will be looking for your support next year.
Thank you for all of your kindness given to our family over the last 5 months, we are grateful and humble to have so many caring people surround us with love.
- Ralph, Kathy, Maddie and Stuart Kelly.
