International Day of Hope


We need all hands-on deck for hope. We are at a pivotal point in humanity, and if we hope for a better environment, economy, and life, we need to know ‘how’ to hope for these things. What we ask of all leading up to the day:

  1. Download and start teaching the Hopeful Minds Overview, so that all have an understanding of the what, the why, and the how of hope. Share all workbook images, so we start teaching each other, and tag us @ifredorg #HopefulMinds
  2. Record the song ‘With this Hope in My Heart’ and upload to by March 31st. We aim to release the song, on our International Day of Hope, May 1, 2023 with YOUR voices!
  3. Ask your mayor, governor, or school to issue a proclamation for hope and ask leadership to become a Hopeful City.

On May 1, 2023, we encourage you to host in person and online events. Some additional ideas for activation:

  1. Paint a health SHINE Mural to activate the Five Keys with a plaque: Happiness Habits, Stress Skills, Inspired Actions, Nourishing Networks, Eliminating Challenges.
  2. Launch a social media campaign on May 1st, with the key message that ‘Hope is Teachable’ and consider a five-day campaign. Download images here.
  3. Launch a Workplace Campaign
