The Free Hugs Campaign
Have you heard of the Free Hugs Campaign? It's incredibly cute, fantastically endearing, and so full of positive energy that it brings a smile to even a hard-hearted cretin like myself. :)
According to the official site:
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 disconnectivity 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.
I absolutely adore this idea, though a quick SWOT analysis (I can't help it) shows some fairly gaping holes in the strength of an extended campaign.
