Free Hugs

Last Saturday we started the “Free Hugs” project here in Veracruz Mexico. We got the idea from the “Free Hugs” clips that we found on YouTube. So we made some signs and five of us set out to give free hugs to people passing by or riding by as was the case for the bicycle cops. We gave about 400 hugs in total the first hour and a half with lots of tracts out and people receiving the witness.

We chose the waterfront walkway as our testing grounds as there are lost of people walking there late afternoon and early evening. When passing by on of the Mexican Naval ships that was docked and giving tours the Officers onboard called us up for their hugs, so they got hugs and we got a free tour of the ship.

I made a FREE HUGS t-shirt for myself and when I wear it people freak out. I now sell it on Ebay. It is a blue shirt with white Free hugs lettering (very approachable), it looks like the free hugs sign. Check it out and help spread the love. Thanks FREE HUGS TO ALL
