On the first weekend of each month I give free hugs to strangers downtown Guelph, ON Canada. I have given and received over 700 hugs from people that I do not know but people who have shown me love. I know that I am spreading kindness in my community because the people that I have hugged vow to share more hugs with others. Kindness is contagious. Once we get that hit of “feel good medicine” we want to keep it going. I encourage you to hug more. Together we can reduce the stigma that surrounds hugging strangers. People need love, kindness and hugs. Hugging just feels good.
This is so great Cindy! Thank you so much for sharing and keep it up!
