FAMILY and friends of 14-year-old Dolly Everett have banded together to create the Dolly's Dream Foundation.

The new foundation hopes to prevent bullying and youth suicide after Dolly ended her life earlier this month.

The Dolly's Dream Foundation Go Fund Me Page has raised more than $40,000 in just a week and was started by family friend Helen Groves who says, "together we can keep Dolly's dream for a better world alive".

"In remembrance to Dolly, and to facilitate positive change for other young lives, the Dolly's Dream Foundation aims to provide support to charity groups through fundraising and promotion," Ms Groves said.

"An aim of Dolly's Dream is also to deliver information on mitigation of bullying, including cyber bullying, to school age kids.

"We believe that delivery of a first-hand account of cyber bulling and its affects, and information on management of such a situation, will be an effective means of deliver and will improve retention of information provided."
