"Hope Alive 425’ is a non-profit organization started by Ginine Emily, partnering with the band Chasing Oz. We are singers, songwriters and musicians who have banded together to bring hope to a hurting world through music, mental health awareness and God’s love & community. We want to start a movement; to take the stigma off mental health issues and give folks a safe place to talk about it.


Hope Alive 425 is a NP that has partnered with the band Chasing Oz and other PNW artists. We wish to bring hope to a hurting world through music, mental health awareness and community. Our next fundraising event (Rock 4 Life Concert) is June 23rd starting at 4pm at Mukilteo Foursquare Church (4424 Chennault Beach Rd, Mukilteo, WA, 98275).

We are also joining the community of nearly 250k people walking in hundreds of cities across the country in support of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention's mission to save lives and bring hope to those affected by suicide.


Depression does not discriminate. Suicide occurs across all demographic groups. It is the 10th leading cause of death right now in the United States. It seems just about every person I meet, has either lost one or more close ones to suicide, or they themselves, suffer from depression and loss of hope.

Let’s put a stop to this! Let’s band together, stand strong, speak life and save lives! Sometimes all it takes is a kind gesture, a caring touch, an ear to softly sit and listen to someone hurting.

At a very early age, I looked through eyes of darkness. I didn’t understand it. I didn’t know why I felt the way I did, why I had thoughts of dying, how to talk about it or who to talk to. Most importantly, I didn’t know how to feel better. I suffered alone for so many years. I felt shame, guilt, complete aloneness. I closed myself off from the world, trying to turn off the pain in many destructive ways. I called myself ugly, stupid, a failure. I didn’t have a bad life. I had 2 parents who loved me, a roof over my head, food on the table. Why did I feel this way?
