The Dolly’s Dream foundation was created by Tick and Kate Everett following the loss of their 14-year-old daughter, Amy ‘Dolly’ Everett, to suicide, after ongoing bullying.
Do It For Dolly Day is about bringing the community together to celebrate kindness and unite in taking a stand against bullying.
“By coming together and getting behind the cause, people will encourage their mates to do the same and, before long, everyone will feel brave enough to speak out against bullying,” says Dolly’s father, Tick Everett.
Nutrien Ag Solutions Managing Director Rob Clayton says Dolly Everett’s story touched the hearts of the nation and Nutrien is very proud to support the important legacy she left behind.
“Do It For Dolly Day is an important reminder of how critical kindness is to everyone’s wellbeing – whether in the online or offline world. We have many champions of kindness across rural and regional Australia that are always putting others first, offering support to those around them and spreading kindness,” says Rob Clayton.
Thanks to the support of the Nutrien network, local communities and our customers –
Nutrien Ag Solutions is proud to donate $20,000 to Dolly’s Dream.
“I want to acknowledge the Katherine Branch who went above and beyond in their support of this important campaign. Branch Manager Ben Coutts and his team put in an enormous effort organising a raffle, sausage sizzle, cake stall, community day and other special promotions to raise awareness and funds for Dolly’s Dream. Together the team raised just under $12,000 – this is an incredible achievement that they should all be very proud of.”
“One of our employees in Tasmania also purchased around $900 worth of Dolly’s Dream merchandise to sell in the local community to support the cause,” says Rob Clayton.
This year Nutrien Ag Solutions also pledged to donate $25 toward Dolly’s Dream for every photo posted on Facebook by employees using the hashtags #NutrienDoItForDolly and #BeKind.
“Thanks to the efforts of our people, I am very proud to announce we will be donating $7,000 to Dolly’s Dream. This funding will support the incredible work Kate, Tick and Meg Everett are doing to take a stand against bullying and create a safer and kinder world for everyone,” says Rob Clayton.
“Thank you to all the branches and individuals across the Nutrien network who further supported the campaign through local fundraising initiatives, purchasing Dolly’s Dream merchandise and proudly wearing Dolly’s favourite colour, blue.”
