Finding Hope Children’s Book

Find Hope and learn about SIDS and safe sleep

Come along on a magical adventure with our mascot, Hope the Elephant as she learns about hope, hidden deep inside her heart.

This year, River’s Gift has embarked on a transformative educational campaign, collaborating with families across Australia to combat sudden and unexpected deaths of infants in sleep. With the launch of our maiden book, Finding Hope, we take caregivers and their children on a journey with our mascot, Hope the Elephant whilst sharing River’s story and education on SIDS and safe sleep.

“We need to educate people. We need to create behavioural change to save babies lives. Our book, Finding Hope, is the perfect tool to start this conversation.”– Alex Hamilton, River’s Gift Co-Founder and River’s Mum.

As Hope searches for what will fill her heart with hope, she discovers that it’s inside her all along. As families fall in
love with our character, you can learn all about SIDS, safe sleep and our story via the QR code in the book.

Bring a “little hope into your own home…” Purchase your Finding Hope Book and Hope Soft Toy via our shop!

Thank you for being a part of this journey.

Your journey with Hope the Elephant is just the beginning.

By practicing and sharing what you learn about infant safe sleep, you help extend a legacy of love and protection that began with a little boy named River. We hope you enjoy these special moments reading our book with your children.
