    How time has passed....beautiful photos and story (was on Channel 7 news tonight as well). Don't these images just reinforce the determined and dogged spirit of Allison's family to give her girls the life they were always meant to have? And they are all carrying Allison's memory and passions forward.

    Allison Baden-Clay’s daughters tribute to mother to continue her legacy
    Allison Baden-Clay’s daughters have made the ultimate tribute to their mother, joining forces to fundraise with her favourite flower to continue her legacy.

    Hannah, 20, Sarah, 17, and Ella, 14, are the faces of the Allison Baden-Clay Foundation’s Strive to Be Kind campaign, with 4000 donated sunflowers to be sold.

    “We are very pleased with how they have matured to be such kind and generous and loving girls just like their mum,” Ms Fowler told The Courier-Mail

    “They’ve all got a great circle of friends and our family is like a village around them. “We are still supporting them in a lot of ways

    “My mum and dad (Geoff and Priscilla Dickie) have done a tremendous job with bringing them up.”

    Hannah is following in the footsteps of her mother and is studying dance performance. She will be graduating from university soon.

    Her passion for dance has led to a goal of travelling overseas to join a large company or production. Those plans have been put on hold while the world deals with Covid-19.

    “They’re all high achievers,” Ms Fowler said.
    Ella, the youngest, also dances like her mother.

    “She loves dancing,” Ms Fowler said.

    “Sarah doesn’t dance, she used to when she was younger. She is sporty and into netball.

    “The funds that will be raised through the sale of the sunflowers will go towards us developing educational programs for community groups and assist with us hosting community forums so that we can share our message with the community around family and domestic abuse,” Ms Fowler said.

    The sunflowers will be sold in Brisbane and Ipswich at schools and businesses for $10. The Strive to Be Kind Day lunch will be held on Friday.

    Strive To Be Kind Day - The Allison Baden-Clay Foundation

    Strive To Be Kind Day (in memory of Allison Baden-Clay) is held on the last Friday of each July. On this day, the Story Bridge and Victoria Bridge light in yellow to remember Allison and her kindness. She was a very generous and loving soul who always put others before herself.

    Strive To Be Kind Day was initially introduced in 2012 so that the community could come together to show each other a little more kindness. Respect, kindness and positivity are all things that we need more of and we encourage people to spend Strive To Be Kind Day and the month of July spreading kindness. Since its inception this wonderful day has gained enormous support with over 100 Queensland State and Private schools, businesses and shopping centres participating.
