Serial hugger

22Oct06

Free Hug campaign – Founder Juan Mann.

Is this a viral advertising for Sick Puppies’ new CD? Nope. Just a random act of kindness.

An insprirational video for some, a laugh perhaps for others.

I am a hugger, because of the culture I was raised in. I’ve noticed the difference in people and in relationships when there is “hugging involved” compared to a high five or a lame wave. I respect those who are conscious of their bubbles but it’s not that bad when they are broken by a hug.

“But his efforts to spread the love became a little too popular for some people’s liking, according to a blurb on the YouTube video, which said: ‘As this symbol of human hope spread across the city, police and officials ordered the Free Hugs campaign BANNED.’
Undeterred, Mann collected more than 10,000 signatures on a petition he presented to the City of Sydney council. Demands for a halt to the hugs petered out shortly after, and the end of the clip shows Mann hugging an official.” :: source ::
Hope this video made you smile [you know it gave you a warm/fuzzy feeling inside].

Oh and one from me [cyberhug].
