What is Day for Daniel? Information for parents and educators
Thank you for deciding to host a Day for Daniel event or activity (or considering the idea). You will be joining over 1 million people across Australia to Wear Red, Educate and Donate and promote child safety initiatives and activities.
The first thing you have to do is register. You will then be sent a FREE Day for Daniel 'Keeping Kids Safe' Resource Kit. You, as the contact person, may or may not be the Coordinator of the event/activity. So at this stage it is important that a Coordinator is appointed and provided with the information. Either use one of our suggested events/activities or create your own! Make sure your local community is as excited and enthusiastic about the event as you are and be sure to get them involved. Produce your event plan and program then start promoting your event. Most importantly when the Day comes, 'Wear Red, Educate and Donate' and hold an engaging event. After the event/activity be sure to thank everyone involved.
