If you want to feel really good for a few minutes - maybe even shed a few happy tears - PLEASE watch this video. The campaign has spread from Mexico to Peru to Barcelona etc etc.

A big free hug from me!

I watched this and then showed it to my mother. She called my two brothers into the room and after we watched it we all gave each other hugs. It really does make you feel good. Thanks!

As I arrived yesterday from a three weeks visit in India I wish I could hug ALL the beautiful children living and dying in the streets of that country.

It's a beautiful thing - I had a free hug in Sydney (Australia) a couple of weeks ago. I had seen it before and been too shy, but after I did I smiled all day.

What a wonderful, spontaneous celebration! It makes me sad to think of all of the lost opportunities we have all had to be supportive, to help, to express empathy, to express love and understanding that we have lost simply because we do not have the courage to walk those very few steps to our brothers and sisters and say "I Care. I Love you. You matter to me. Your pain is my pain."..... This video might help us all on this journey...

Bravo for this!
