Pledge to Plant and Earn an iPad Mini!

This has been an exciting week for our mission! This past Monday, President Obama hosted the National Conference on Mental Health at the White House and sparked a national conversation around the issues faced by the mental health community.

Now is the time to harness this momentum by sharing our Field for Hope "Pledge to Plant" message with everyone whose attention might have been captured by this national debate. But we need your help!

To thank you for sharing our "action" we have created some exciting incentive levels for Pledge to Plant with prizes including Lowe's Home Improvement gift cards, Netflix memberships, magazine subscriptions and even a brand new iPad Mini!

There are a limited number of prizes available and the incentives only run through June 30, 2013, so you will want to get started sharing right away! We have tips and tools already created for you at

If you've already been hard at work recruiting people to take the Pledge don't worry; all activity up to this point will be counted. Check out our complete list of incentive levels, along with eligibility requirements, here:

With your help, we can make our symbol of light and hope shine even brighter for the 350 million worldwide living with depression.
