The HOPE Bank: How donating hope is like donating blood

Blog Header (1)

Did you know that we all have two different kinds of hearts?

Just as your physical heart pumps blood through your body, your emotional heart sends your feelings throughout the world.

Where the physical heart needs blood, the emotional heart runs on hope.

Everybody knows the process of donating blood.

But fewer people know what to do when an emotional heart isn’t properly circulating.

Though we see the effects manifest as depression and anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) can also lead to social isolation and withdrawal, mental illness, and even suicide.

What’s more is that many people suffer from broken emotional hearts through no reason but misfortune. These include trauma victims, family and friends of those who have died in mass tragedies, first responders, overworked and exhausted healers, and everyone who has been affected by a natural disaster.

However, just blood can be donated to help heal a physical heart, hope can be donated too.

How does this work?
