Budgewoi Tree Of Dreams

The Tree of Dreams® is an annual campaign to raise awareness of suicide prevention on the Central Coast. The campaign works towards heightening awareness of the impact of suicide, and increasing conversations about preventing suicide.

An Annual Community Event in its 5th year, our Budgewoi Tree of Dreams founder Kylie Skinner (Owner of Peachies Hair Studio Budgewoi), began this Tree of Dreams Journey after losing an unforgettable friend to suicide. Never wanting Sarah to be forgotten Kylie created this annual community event to bring together the locals to assist the Iris Foundation, to fund local schools and organisations to support and educate children with tools in the shed to overcome any problems along their journey in life.

TO BE HEARD!    "IT AINT WEAK TO SPEAK"

On the 5th December 2020, we will adorn the tree with hundreds of messages of: 

HOPE – STRENGTH – REMEMBERENCE – SUPPORT

Collected from people across the Central Coast.  The Tree has become a memorable tribute to those we have lost, but also a positive display of hope and support to remind us all to encourage life and reach out to each other when times are tough.

We invite you to purchase a tag for $5 and send a little message of hope, dreams, memories or tributes to lost ones, these messages will be displayed on the Tree. 

Donations of any amount are also welcomed, if you need a little help writing something for a tag, please don't hesitate to ask us to write something on your behalf.

Please help Kylie spread awareness!  Thanks Legends!
