$150 donated
Given by 3 generous donors in one year

Help me provide free resources to parents inside prison so they can grow & maintain healthy & loving relationship with their kids.

I started a website called The Opal Place ( that provides my Free resources to families with a loved one in prison, Corrections Staff, Teachers & Guidance Councillors, Chaplains, Social Workers & anyone else who has contact with parents inside prison or their awesome & courageous children.

You see - I know first-hand what its like to be a scared kid in foster care & I know what its like to be an anxious parent inside prison trying their best to parent & guide their child from behind-the-wire.

What I've learnt the hard-way is that a traumatic child-hood will affect your adult-hood & then in-turn your own children. Having survived my child-hood, addiction, mental health & prison I wanted to use my voice, experiences & passion to help other people like myself in The Opal Community.

I have struggled to write a huge resource for parents in prison and their children & youth. The resources goal is to inspire both the Opal parent and their children and to empower & educate themselves & of course to help entertain! I am also respectful of the huge diversity of faiths in the Opal Community & do my best to make it a place that is welcome to all.

My goal is to help empower Opal parents any-where in the world so that we can find & create solutions for ourselves to end the endless cycle of apathy, crime, addiction & hopelessness - so that our children can be set free of this cycle. Please read more on The Opal Place (
