Free Hugs

Free Hugs

FREE HUGS...The best gift you could ever give someone for free. Whether it is helping someone cope with sadness or celebrating with someone, a hug can always make a person's day. Many people would laugh when they first hear about a campaign for free hugs. The truth is that everyone experiences a positive or negative moment everyday of their life. It has grown throughout society that affection can be embarrassing and if someone needs a hug, they will not ask for one. When this campaign was first started by a gentleman named Juan Mann, he went out into a random city with a sign stating, "FREE HUGS." People would walk by giving him weird looks and laughing at him. Finally someone stopped and gave him a hug. After that others hugged him and eventually others were carrying FREE HUGS signs. The power of a hug could truly make someone's day or even save a person's life. You may not believe me now, but once our video is created people will see that a kind gesture like a hug could help someone in desperate need. Hugs are always great when celebrating an occasion or seeing someone you know, but what about the sad times. Everyday someone deals with stress at school or work, depression with obesity, drugs, or an illness, and even thoughts or actions in regards to suicide. These are very strong and negative feelings that can really affect someone on the inside. Not everyone has the money to get help or buy things to make them happy. However, one thing that can truly change a person's life and will cost no money is a FREE HUG! So start a campaign of your own and change the life of a person by giving them the best gift of all....a hug!
