Free Hugs? A Worldwide Movement!

Back in 2007 I stumbled on a fantastic video on the Free Hugs movement, original post is here. Until today I didn’t realize just how widespread it was. So what I have done is consolidated as many videos as I could find, into this one post. These videos were the first thing I watched this morning, a good way to start with a smile. So here is what I’ve dug up so far… I’m sure I’m missing some, but you get the scope of how BIG this movement is…
