Free Hugs - Summer of '13










Let's celebrate summer by sharing free hugs with the people of Stockholm!

The idea behind Free Hugs is simple: a random act of kindness. Everybody needs a hug from time to time. Just bring a sign and your best mood ever... And start hugging!

We'll meet at 1 pm to prepare and socialize. Bring cardboard or whatever you prefer making your sign from, or why not make a free hugs t-shirt? After about half an hour we'll make our way to hug the people of Stockholm. We'll end the event at some nice restaurant with some food together... :)

Here is a video to get inspired:

Since I put this up in other forums, I need to make sure we don't get too many. Therefore, please message me(Erik Anell) on Meetup or on my phone with your Meetup name so I can confirm your attendance. I will then send you the place where we meet up. My phone number is [masked]


Feel free to bring one or two friends to the event...

Hearty hugs,

    Since noone messaged me, there is still space left for free hugging! We'll be meeting up at park "Fatbursparken" close to Medborgarplatsen tomorrow. Bring a cardboard and a smile and come meet us there tomorrow! :)

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
