    I think I would love to do something like this at a street fest this summer.
    Who's with me?

    When was the last time you hugged someone?

    And wouldn't it be great if we all hugged a new person each day or even once a week?

    I think this is the most wonderful thing I have seen. It really brought a tear to my eye and it would be great to see something like this happening. Thanks for brightening my day! icon_smile.gif

    For those that haven't seen the original (very sweet):


    There's a whole Free Hugs movement for those interested. And lots of videos contributed from different places.

    Thanks soooo much!!!!!!

    OMG that made me smile and cry at the same time.
    That is soo sweet. Its surprising how much a hug can
    do for people, the embrace and warmth of someone's
    heart has such healing qualities. I totally need a hug now.

    I'm DEFINITELY going to do this someday with a team of people.
    Who's in on it with me?

    It'll be a hit at the Gay Pride parades, for sure.

    Very nice indeed... I'm glad not everybody looked at this with suspicion.
    You can tell they enjoyed it!

    At my school on every Friday there's people that advertise free hugs. Also a student dresses up as a super hero, known as the Happy Friday Guy, masks himself in like a blue mask with goggles..goes around on a scooter wishing everyone a happy Friday.

    that's been brought to a stop at Canadian conventions because of a few cases where it was part of organized theft. It's a shame that one can ruin something intended as good will to many.

    Wow, I feel like an emotional mess today. This made me feel so warm but I find myself crying a little at the same time. I am sending your All Hugs!

    I see them often in Amsterdam, they're great.

    I am shy, so I wouldn't offer free hugs myself.
