Next Meetup

Chip in and lets meet up
Hey everyone. We are glad you are a part of this group. And we expect to have many more awesome successful events for you to meet other people and give high fives, free hugs and many other types of events to connect people. If you want to see this group grow we will need your help. Meetup has changed the way the groups work. It used to be that group leaders would pay 20.00 a month for up to three groups. I have paid that for the last couple of years. NOW it is 20.00 PER group. So this has tripled the price per month. Being a small business owner I am unable to cover the cost for this group myself. If you have had a fun time at previous meet ups or want to have fun at future meetups please hit the "chip in" button on the left side of the groups main page. Feel free to donate any amount from 1 buck to whatever. I can do a 6 month plan at 14.99/month which is what I would prefer to do. Let's chip in and move forward. I also want to remind people that if you are inspired to host a group meet up I encourage you to talk to me about putting it together. We are over 100 people so I imagine a few of you want to host something at your favorite location in the city that needs some love. We are a group of people spread out over all of NYC and NJ so no location is off limits. Hope to you soon at the next event. Sincerely, Wade & Sunny

    What we're about

    Gather with a warm group of people to share positive messages of happiness, love, acceptance, and togetherness within public spaces. Its amazing how something so simple can be so profound. You'll be amazed at how people passing by, total strangers, respond and interact very positively with the messages. People pose for photos, stop for a chat to ask what we're about, or just give a warm smile or laugh while passing by. Messages are hand painted/drawn onto signs made by each individual or small group and generally include messages like, "You're beautiful!" "I love it when you smile." "Follow your love, follow your dreams." "Free hugs." "You are love." You get the point. We'll meet in different locations around the city where there's a considerable amount of space and foot traffic. We'll meet and share a moment of silence or meditation before and after the event to open and close. We'll start with around hour long meetups. Hindu, Christian, Atheist, Buddhist, Jewish, Muslim, people from all religious faiths and from no religion are welcome to gather in community to share these secular positive messages. It's a really nice way of meeting other like minded positive people around the city and I guarantee it will leave you feeling happier and more connected. Artists, street performers, musicians, bankers, yogis, lawyers, burners, Moms, Dads, Kids are welcome to creatively explore with us ways to co-create positive vibes and smiles at these events.
