Field for Hope is a project that seeks to eradicate the stigma of depression. In 2012, fifteen global nonprofits (listed below) are planting 1 million sunflowers around the world to symbolically re brand this very treatable disease. These sunflowers honor the 350 million people living with depression, 75% of whom are untreated due to stigma.
You can find out more information about each via their website address. Each organization plans to use the funds to continue their work on destigmatizing depression through education, outreach, and support in their perspective countries and locations. If you would like to donate, you can do so, right here on this CAUSES page or by clicking https://app.etapestry.com/hosted/InternationalFoundationforRes/OnlineDonation.html
