Remembering a friend – wear yellow for Allison
The friends of Allison Baden-Clay have created Wear Yellow Day for Allison and Strive to be Kind as an annual event so their friend will always be remembered.
Leading up to Monday, July 22 the community are encouraged to wear yellow (Allison's favourite colour) in memory of Allison and to bring some kindness into the life of someone else, whether it be providing essential items to a person in need, carrying out a chore for an elderly person or something as simple as holding open the door for someone. If people don't have any yellow attire to wear, simply wear something special that you haven't worn for awhile or have never worn - maybe a new piece of jewellery, new tie, new perfume or outfit.
Allison impacted on the lives of all those who knew her because of her generous nature and kind soul. To continue Allison's legacy and hold her memory in the hearts of the community, people are encouraged to live with compassion in their lives and with love for one another.
Local Brisbane businesses have also committed to the cause by pledging to decorate their display windows or shops in Yellow, and include Mt Ommaney Shopping Centre, the Gypsy Coffee Wagon at Davies Park Market (West End), Luisa Interior Design at Norman Park and Coming Up Roses at Balmoral.
To assist Allison's three young daughters with education and medical expenses, donations can be made to the Late Allison Baden-Clay Children's Trust c/- National Australia Bank BSB: 084-737 Account 94-308-4078.
