About Tree of Dreams
We can all take part and show our support.
Share You Message of Hope
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Tree of Dreams campaign will not include a public gathering this year. However, tags will be available onsite at Wyong Milk Factory until 10 September. Iris Foundation can also place messages of hope, support and remembrance in the Tree of Dreams on your behalf. Simply email your message of 20 words or less to firstname.lastname@example.org.
A Suicide-Safer Central Coast
Iris Foundation acknowledges the impact of suicide in our Central Coast community. Through generous donations Iris Foundation can continue to facilitate programs and campaigns which reduce stigma, connect people, foster hope and build resilience – as a means to reducing the risk of suicide. Your donation is valued.
In 2019, Iris Foundation was proud to host the inaugural River of Reflections event as part of the annual Tree of Dreams awareness campaign.
A crowd of around 100 local people gathered on the banks of Wyong River on September 8. Many wrote messages of hope, support and remembrance on lighted lanterns, which were then released to float peacefully down the river. The group took the opportunity to reflect, talk together, share snacks and hear from speakers with a lived experience of suicide.
Iris Foundation would like to thank local filmmakers Mel and Gerry of Films4Change for their work on our amazing event video.
