Dominique Savage, M.Ed., Founder and CEO of Educated Mindz Authors a Book for Children to Help with Grief from Loss of Loved Ones: 100 Journeys of Hope

In a flourishing environment, the adults in the community are to aid and protect the children as they navigate life and learn to adapt through their experiences.

100 Journeys of Hope is a movement launched by Dominique Savage, M.Ed., founder and CEO of Educated Mindz and author of “Darla Misses Daddy”.

Darla is a little girl who loves going to school, playing with friends, and spending time with her family. Darla really enjoyed spending time with her father cooking, playing, and riding in the car. One day Darla's father passed away and this saddened her because she loved him very much. Follow Darla's experience as she struggles to learn how to grow up without her dad no longer in her life.

Dominique lost her father at a young age and has personally lived through the challenges that comes with grieving and making her way through life without a significant loved one. She was able to recognize the need not only within her own personal experiences but also within the classroom, for a resource of awareness such as this book. It is her purpose and duty to use what she knows to create a solution and a resource for success and resolve.

100 Journeys of Hope

The goal is to get the book into more households, libraries, and organizations that have direct interaction with the children who need it the most. We are also encouraging parents to join the movement and get books for friends because even if a child isn’t dealing with grief directly, this book can help them better understand their friends who are, and the conversations can be had comfortably. Knowledge is power and if this movement can impact 100 journeys by welcoming hope through awareness, we are here for it!

Wholistically as an ECE Coach, Provider, Community Leader and Author, Dominique is changing the trajectory of the environments that consistently mold our youth and enriching the leaders that are in control of their day to day care, therefore, she is transforming communities as a whole, and essentially investing into the future of humanity.
