Global Day For Hope - Planting Awareness #HOPE2015 #PLANTHOPE #iFred



A recent study shows that 1 in 9 kids attempt suicide before graduating high school. The good news: this is preventable, and there are ways to help. The International Foundation for Research and Education on Depression (iFred) uses their Schools for Hope to teach parents, teachers, and students how to fight the leading predictor of suicide-- hopelessness.

This year iFred is starting the first annual Global Day for Hope, this Saturday, May 2nd.  They would like to invite people from all over to spread awareness about depression and how to get help when you need it. Participation is easy! Just wear yellow (the color of joy and happiness) and/or plant a sunflower (or many) for yourself or with friends to take part in this celebration of HOPE!


Don’t forget to share your enthusiasm with your favorite social media sites! Post, tweet, or instagram using #HOPE2015 and #PLANTHOPE. Don’t forget to tag @ifredorg and check out how other people are using this day to shine a positive light on depression and battle the stigma and hopelessness people face every single day.

Check out their facebook event and the Global Day for Hope map to see where sunflowers are being planted for the cause. Together we can work to help those with depression find hope.
