Melissa first met Denise Morcombe in 2014. As a result of that meeting she returned to her home region and contacted schools and local businesses so they could be involved in Day for Daniel.
Since 2015 she has been a Day for Daniel Ambassador, getting schools and businesses in her NSW South Coast community involved in this important child safey event.
As the 2015 Ambassador she worked with the Australian Federal Police to bring the DMF Safety Truck to the South Coast for the first time, where the head of the National Missing Persons Coordination Centre Rebecca Kotz delivered safety talks to over 2000 students on behalf of Bruce and Denise Morcombe.
This tour visited schools from Batemans Bay south to Pambula and everywhere inbetween.
