PF VOLUNTEER: Do You Need A Hug?

Hosted by Carol and Tony
From Positive Focus

This Meetup is past

7 people went


(PF Power of actions series event)

Note - through the winter months we will be shortening the time and starting hugs at 2:30PM.

Do you need a hug? Join us on the 1st Saturday and 3rd Sunday of the month for Positive Focus' FREE HUGS.

What to bring: An open heart, a fun spirit, and a sign that says 'Free Hugs'. We will have extra signs too.

What to do: Smile, be inviting, open your heart and arms and allow people to come to you. It is our intention to spread kindness through a smile, a high five or a hug while allowing people to walk by who aren't ready for a hug. If you are unfamiliar with the free hug movement watch the original video here.

Not a hugger, but want to join us? Hugs are so powerful and I would hate for you to miss it from fear of hugging a stranger. Come watch, come take pictures for us...but COME.

Suggested donation: $5 donation to help us keep spreading global positivity. It's not required to participate, but it is appreciated.

NOTE: Rain, snow or shine we are out there, but the hugs may not last two hours. So be there at the start or we may be gone. Excessive weather conditions might force us to cancel in which we will email morning of the event. :)

    Dress warmly as we're outside but I think you are going to love it. I usually get there right at 2:30 but if for some reason you can't find us, my cell is 312.636.1432. Big hugs
