The Anne Marie D’Amico Foundation (AMDF) is a charitable organization that is working to support humanitarian causes that embody Anne Marie’s spirit to effect positive change. Spreading kindness, bringing awareness to the growing issue of domestic violence, and creating a world where women and children can live free of violence are our top priorities.
History of The Anne Marie D’Amico Foundation
The Toronto Van Attack took place on April 23, 2018. As a result of this hate-motivated crime, 10 people were tragically killed, 16 were seriously injured, and countless others were indirectly impacted that day. It is considered the deadliest vehicular mass murder in Canadian history. One of the victims whose life was violently taken was Anne Marie D’Amico. Inevitably, this horrific event left a permanent scar on the hearts of the D’Amico family forever.
The Anne Marie D’Amico Foundation (AMDF) was launched by the D’Amico family, in December 2018, as a way to honour their daughter and sister, and to carry Anne Marie’s legacy with them each day. Inspired by her character and in remembrance of her spirit, the Foundation will effect positive change by drawing on Anne Marie’s passion and practice for selfless acts of kindness, her altruistic behaviour, and her ability to give back with her whole heart.
