The Lyone Foundation has donated $10,000 to the Jack Beasley Foundation, a remarkable initiative aimed at supporting the "I live my life without a knife" campaign. This campaign, as highlighted by the Queensland Police Service (QPS), encourages individuals to make stronger choices for their future.
The Jack Beasley Foundation was born out of a deep desire to address the rising issue of knife violence among young people. The foundation's origins trace back to the Beasley family, who tragically lost their beloved son, Jack, to a senseless act of knife-related violence. In the wake of this devastating loss, they channelled their grief into action, vowing to prevent similar tragedies from befalling other families.
Over the years, they have tirelessly worked in collaboration with local communities, schools, law enforcement agencies, and other organisations to create meaningful change. Through their tireless efforts and unwavering commitment, the Jack Beasley Foundation has become a beacon of hope, striving to shape a future where lives are not marred by the devastating consequences of knife violence.
