Violence continues to destroy families

Violence continues to destroy families

NSW Police Commissioner Andrew Scipione last year noted the extraordinary decline in violent assaults near Sydney pubs and clubs just one year after new drinking laws were introduced.

Generosity of the city

Generosity of the city

The Thomas Kelly Youth Foundation was invited to present at a fundraiser in Sydney on Tuesday 10th March 2015.

Along with three other charities, all of whom are doing amazing work to make the world a better place.  We were each given 6-minutes plus 6-minutes Q&A to get our message across to the audience.

The people in the room that night dug deep and donated a total amount of $212,000 to the four charities.  None of us could believe the total generosity of the human spirit in the room that night.

Blown away.  Faith restored in humanity.  Thank you to all of the people who attended that night.
