I have taken the time to read through “Red Chocolate Elephants” and what a wonderful book. So easy to read and very colourful. Aimed at children in a way that they can understand and relate to.
We will certainly be utilising it within our organisation. Sometimes staff are very confronted when working with children who have lost a member of their family to suicide. This can either be an immediate family member or extended family member. Either way it hits hard.
We have worked with, in the past, and will I guess in the future, children who have lost a parent, sibling, grandparent, aunt or uncle. This has been due to depression and/or domestic violence that has escalated beyond what people can handle.Read More
We chose to do this event to be apart of the happiest 5km on the planet, which is definitely is but also to raise funds and awareness of those who are bereaved by suicide.
All funds raised will go to our projects to support people bereaved by suicide.Read More

WINGS of Hope recently received funding from St George Foundation to provide the Red Chocolate Elephants DVD/book postvention resource to the Riverina Region (NSW).

Isn't it good that I got to meet you,
Isn't it sad that you had to go,
Isn't it good that you got to love me,
Isn't it sad that you left me so,
Isn't it good I remember your beautiful face,
Isn't it sad that you won't grow old.
