Australian Literary and Numeracy Foundation (ALNF)

I believe that literature can change the lives of children. Books hold the power to create a more promising and happy future.

The more we educate our youth, the better our chances of positively shaping the world — and it doesn’t have to be complicated. Oftentimes, the simple act of getting books into the hands of young children is all we need.

We support the Australian Literary and Numeracy Foundation (ALNF), and I would love you to join me in this endeavour.

Fredrick The Fox was born through my years of working with marginalised people around Australia — those who often feel invisible or like the ‘other.’

Purchasing a book is easy, as each purchase will be sent directly to ALNF warehouse for distribution. Each copy will end up in the hands of marginalised children across Australia, including those who may see a bit of themselves in our sweet Fredrick.

This important book is set within the beautiful Australian landscape, and will be part of a series of children’s books. Each book will not only celebrate being different, but will also teach children how to accept themselves, accept others, and make friends with everyone around them.

Small changes can create big results.

That’s why your support to ALNF matters, whether you’d like to purchase one or one hundred! When you purchase a book, you will be helping a child who is trying to make sense of the world they live in.

Join myself, the Australian Literary and Numeracy Foundation, and Fredrick the Fox as we try to make the world a little bit better of a place, one child at a time.
