The Free Hugs Campaign

Created on Wednesday, 21 August 2014 08:57

Free Hugs is the real life controversial story of Juan Mann, a man whose sole mission was to reach out and hug a stranger to brighten up his/her life.

In this age of social disconnectivity and lack of human contact the effects of the Free Hugs Campaign became phenomenal. As this symbol of human hope and affection spread officials tried to ban the campaign. Seriously. (!)

What we then witness is the true spirit of humanity coming together in what can only be described as awe inspiring.

Below you can watch clips from some of the Free Hugs Campaigns around the world and you can find many more on YouTube. In the spirit of the Free Hugs Campaign pass this on to a friend and hug someone! 🙂
