Our Mission / Objective

Established in 2012 by parents Donna and Brian Meads-Barlow, the DANII Foundation was set up as a legacy to their 17 year old daughter Daniella following her sudden passing in 2011 as a result of a night time hypoglycaemic episode – a diabetes complication more widely known as “Dead in Bed” Syndrome.

Danii went to bed a happy, healthy teenager, but sometime during the night, her blood glucose levels (BGL) fell so low that she became unresponsive and was unable to alert her parents that something was terribly wrong.  Danii’s BGL’s fell to such a critically low level that she experienced convulsions, pushing her into a coma, and causing her death – alone and in silence. On learning that there was technology overseas that could have prevented Danii’s death, her parents knew what they had to do – through their own tragedy, they had to do everything possible to prevent another life being cut short.

Through her passing, Danii gave her parents a parting gift – the inspiration to create a lasting legacy in her name and the courage to offer today’s T1D’s the care and safety they need to help them manage their diabetes and in doing so, help them live a normal, long and enjoyable life.

What we do:

The DANII Foundation supports the research, development and introduction of alert technology to assist in the management of type 1 diabetes, with the ultimate goal of preventing “Dead in Bed” syndrome. It’s principal aims are to raise awareness of potentially fatal hypoglycaemia, and to develop and introduce an affordable alert device to provide support, security and peace of mind for the management of type 1 diabetes (T1D).

The Foundation believes this technology – a continuous glucose monitor and alert system  should be readily available to every single person in Australia, living with T1D. Our vision is for a world where people with type 1 diabetes live without the fear of never waking up.

Our mission is to make affordable, life-saving alert technology a reality for all people with type 1 diabetes. Our objectives: To raise awareness of potentially fatal hypoglycaemia with the ultimate goal of preventing “Dead in Bed” syndrome”.

When making your donation make sure you indicate the celebration occasion and include the full name of the person you are celebrating, as well as their mailing address.

We will mail your honouree a special handwritten card letting them know about your gift (this notification will not include your donation amount, just your name). You will receive a tax receipt and your donation will be fully tax-deductible.

It’s my party …

If you’re special occasion is coming up and you would like to encourage friends to make a donation to the DANII Foundation in lieu of gifts, first of all, THANK YOU!

One of the easiest ways to ask for donations to be made in lieu of gifts is to include donation envelopes with party invitations. Please call or email us to order your donation envelopes.

WORKPLACE GIVING

Workplace giving is a simple and effective way for individuals to make regular donations to the DANII Foundation through automated payroll deductions.

Employees

Workplace giving allows you as an employee to make a regular donation off your gross pay. Your employer sends your donation to us in one lump sum along with other employees’ donations. You can easily claim a deduction for donations in your annual tax return off the information provided by your employer on your employee payment summary. It’s a quick and easy way for you to support the DANII Foundation, and because we receive your donation in a lump sum and don’t need to send you an individual tax receipt, it’s also quick and easy for us to process.

To enrol in workplace giving contact your payroll or human resources manager to find out about your company’s program or for more information please contact donations@danii.org.au.

Employers

The DANII Foundation is proud to be supported through workplace giving programs at companies and organisations large and small, throughout Australia.

Establishing a workplace giving program engages your employees and demonstrates your commitment to corporate social responsibility. A program is easy to set-up and is a simple, efficient way to support your employees’ desire to give back to their community. In addition, implementing a matched giving program – whereby the company matches all or a percentage of employees’ contributions – is a powerful incentive, bringing employees together and boosting morale as well as substantially increasing your combined support.

To learn more about the DANII Foundation workplace giving program, or for information on establishing your company’s program, please contact the Donation team anytime on +61 (0) 418 465 245 or email donations@danii.org.au.

Important information about workplace giving can be found on the ATO website (including their Guide to Workplace Giving).

Donating $20 each pay period through workplace giving will cost you only $13.70 and the DANII Foundation will receive the full $20.**Based on a marginal tax rate of 32.5%.
