I wrote briefly about the Free Hugs movement in one of my previous posts, but wanted to expound on it a little here.
Free Hugs was started by a gentleman, named Juan Mann, and the Free Hugs website states: Sometimes, a hug is all what we need. Free hugs is a real life controversial story of Juan Mann, a man whos sole mission was to reach out and hug a stranger to brighten up their lives.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 spread accross the city, police and officials ordered the Free Hugs campaign BANNED.

I would encourage you all to give Free Hugs a try! Be it in a formal setting or informal setting. Perhaps you can be the vessel to change a person's day because you took a moment to give a "Free Hug". If you would like to watch the Free Hugs video, click HERE!
A friend of mine has a button maker, and I'm gonna see if she will make me some Free Hug buttons. So, Matt D., if you want one, just let me know and I'll send one your way.
