One year since Baden-Clay verdict, kindness movement grows

TOMORROW  marks one year since Gerard Baden-Clay was convicted of murdering his wife Allison and dumping her body at Kholo Creek.

It comes as Allison's family and friends announce they will continue their Strive To Be Kind Day on Friday July 31 for the third year since she died.

Allison is believed to have been murdered at her Brookfield home in April 2012 while her children were sleeping nearby. Her body was found about 10 days later.

The Queensland Court of Appeal will hear her husband's appeal against his convictions on August 7.

"Allison had a generous nature and kind soul and was loved by all who knew her because of her gentleness and loving nature, her character was impeccable and her actions always displayed love and kindness in all that she did," a media release sent out on Monday read.

"Allison's gift to the world was her kindness and she always put others before herself. Her kindness touched the lives of all with whom she came into contact and she would want everyone to be kind to others by performing small acts of kindness to make a difference in their everyday lives."

Former golden girl of Australian swimming Hayley Lewis is ambassador for Strive to be Kind Day.

Allison's family and friends also thanked all the new schools now on board with the special day including Moreton Bay College, Coolum State High School and Lowood State High School.

To get involved in Strive To Be Kind Day, buy a yellow ribbon, wear yellow, do an act of kindness or make a donation to support children experiencing hardship.
