Who needs a smile today?

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

In the Spirit of the free hugs campaign, PASS THIS TO A FRIEND and HUG A STRANGER! After all, If you can reach just one person...

I wish that fellow was here.

I could use a hug.  I smashed up my van yesterday.

I don't think I would hug him, but then again I probably wouldn't hug anyone over the age of 8 that I didn't know.
Thanks,

I only read the post at first and didn't bother with the video as I too was thinking " errr ... don't think I would ever hug a stranger !" but came back and decided to watch the video anyhow , don't know if it's the hormones or what but I am crying ! I loved watching all the people get super excited and running at eachother to hug . I cannot believe it was banned !?!?! And that girl at the end tried to hug the officer anyways  :'(

that is perfect. I could use that everyday. Everyone needs to know that someone cares.  :'( It's a feeling like no other when you know that.
