The end of financial year is a busy time for most of us and this year WINGS of Hope has had its busiest yet. From more volunteers engaging with us, increased awareness of Red Chocolate Elephants and fundraising activities that will assist with future projects.
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).

Thank you for subscribing to our newsletter and staying in touch! There is a lot going on with WINGS of Hope projects well underway and more news in stall. Our Acting President, Wendy McWilliam was appointed in November last year and is currently soaring through a major campaign to place copies of Red Chocolate Elephants in the Riverina (NSW) region this week.
Our project coordinator, Jodie Streckeisen has been with us for a year now – so congratulations Jodie and our sincere thanks for all of your tireless efforts and detailed work. Without you, we would not be able to implement our projects and Wendy wouldn’t be able to ship all those copies of RCE to the Riverina.
James Baudzus has recently accepted a position of grant coordinator and has been a huge help in achieving success with the St George Foundation grant.
Thank you to Leigh for her everlasting enthusiasm and marketing expertise with our projects. Lastly thank you to Steph for her generous commitment to our administration, secretarial role and record keeping.
We look forward to sharing events, fundraising ideas and new projects we have planned for the year.Read More
