How to spread hope and happiness: Free hugs


Yeah it’s kind of cheesy. Yup, you have probably seen it before. But a reminder every once in awhile of how easy it is to spread a little hope and happiness is a good thing. We are all so wrapped up in our own worlds. We are all so afraid of each other and mistrusting of each others intentions. Sometimes just letting that all fall away and freely giving a hug is a healing thing.

So watch this. Tear up a little and feel a bit silly for it. Then go give someone a hug.


Juan Mann’s video has inspired an entire movement. Search your favorite video site for “free hugs” and you’ll see how this one simple act has spread.
