Richmond Football Club is helping children and young people live free from violence

Since 2012, the Alannah and Madeline Foundation has been the preferred charity partner of the Richmond Football Club. The Club and loyal Tiger Army are making a huge difference in our community, helping children and young people live free from violence and trauma.

Caring supporters like you have already helped thousands of Australia’s children and young people have a stronger future. And now, after a challenging few years, we’ve never needed you more.

Your 2022 match day donations and Alannah & Madeline Foundation Club memberships will help vulnerable children and young people who urgently need support to recover, heal and grow.

Buddy Bags are gratefully received by children and young people who arrive in emergency care with nothing. A Buddy Bag brings a sense of comfort and hope when they need it most.

The backpacks are lovingly packed by Alannah & Madeline Foundation volunteers with essentials and comfort items all kids need. These much-needed backpacks are the fundraising focus of Richmond Football Club’s dedicated match on Thursday, 16 June 2022 at the MCG.

Together, let’s cheer on our Tigers and make this the most successful dedicated match yet!

One backpack can mean the world

Tillie’s story

Usually, Tillie’s dad would hurt her mum, but at age seven, he became violent towards her. Tillie and her mum fled to a refuge with nothing but the clothes they were wearing.

It was a terrifying and overwhelming time and Tillie felt very alone and scared. So, when she was handed a Buddy Bag, it meant the world. Inside she found an array of essentials and comfort items, including pyjamas, a game, a toothbrush and hairbrush… even a soft teddy bear to cuddle!

The gift of a Buddy Bag was a powerful gesture of kindness that brought Tillie hope when she needed it most. Tillie’s mum told us: “It meant so much to Tillie to have something to call her own”.

A big thank you to our Supporters
