    Day for Daniel

    Day for Daniel is Australia’s largest child safety education and awareness day. Held annually on the last Friday of October, Day for Daniel honours the memory of Daniel Morcombe.

    The theme is Wear Red, Educate and Donate.

    Parents, carers, and educators are encouraged to start a conversation with children and young people about personal safety. Schools and early learning centres conduct child safety education activities. Businesses and community come together to raise awareness of child safety issues.

    Day for Daniel is the Daniel Morcombe Foundation’s biggest fundraiser each year. Your support through fundraising helps us to continue developing free resources and programs for parents, carers, and educators to teach children how to stay safe. Funds also contribute to supporting young victims of crime.

    Wear Red 

    Help us remember Daniel by wearing red, the colour that represents child safety and our Foundation.

    Wear a red shirt, decorate your school or business, or have a red morning tea!
