What is the Spread Hope Project?
The Spread Hope Project is a mental health advocacy and support campaign. Our mission is to literally spread hope to as many places and people as possible, to chip away at the stigma surrounding mental health and suicide. By making visible the message of Hope for those struggling with mental health conditions, we aim to erode the idea of mental health as a taboo.
What Do We Do?
Our first order of business is photos. Lots of them! Wearing Spread Hope Project merchandise, we take photos in as many places and with as many different people as we can. By visiting different cities, states, and even countries, we are spreading the message of Hope and support across the country and the globe.
Next up, merchandise. When it comes to spreading hope, we say the more the merrier! To help others participate, we’re creating Spread Hope Project merchandise and apparel. A portion of the proceeds of all sales will go to your choice of mental health and suicide prevention organizations.
How Can You Be Involved?
We want to connect with people. That’s what we’re all about – it’s how hope is spread, after all. We’re always open to suggestion for new photo locations, project ideas, and ways to Spread Hope. Have a school or university that wants to be involved? Let us know! Interested in your business or organization being featured? Reach out! Have a great Spread Hope campaign idea? We’re all ears! And or course, take photos. Lots of them. Create a handmade sign or poster or craft project with the word Hope if you’d like. And if you don’t have any swag, that’s perfectly fine too – a picture featuring you is fantastic on its own. So however you choose, snap a photo in a place where you’d like to spread hope, post it, and use the hashtag #SpreadHopeProject. We can’t wait to see it!
