Gratitude Wall

We could not do all of our wonderful work without the amazing partnerships and support from the following individuals, companies, and organizations. It is their generous gifts, product donations, cause-marketing campaigns and in-kind media support that help us to share our message. 

Our message is one of hope: hope is a universal right that is critical, teachable, and available to all. For more information, see the BBC coverage of our program on Hopeful Minds, and, if you haven’t already, check out the new updated Hopeful Minds curriculums, available for download or purchase at

Please do share our work, and support our generous donors below.

Founding Sponsor

We would not be here without the generous support of The Mood Factory, who dedicated the first nationwide cause marketing campaign to our organization. It was done at a time when mental health was highly stigmatized, and a great risk for the brand. Yet the product was a success, and the seed funding helped us create what is now Hopeful Minds, a global program aimed at teaching the “how to” of hope.
