A Little About Free Hugs:

Free Hugs is an incredible experience! It’s one that requires courage, trust and vulnerability. When you put that out into the world, it’s scary but also incredibly fulfilling.
Sometimes people can go throughout their day without anyone noticing them, feeling unimportant or simply down. Notice how it feels to have a stranger just smile at you? Now imagine that combined with a warm hug (or high five)!

P.S. Rainy days do tend to put a dampner on the experience, especially for the mighty brave huggers. So in the spirit of keeping this a fun event, we are likely to postpone on seriously wet days but cloud doesn’t scare us away!

If you’d like to buy a shirt they are $20!
