Free Hugs!

Juan Mann founder of the "Free Hugs" movement

This video makes me happy. Juan Mann is a guy whose sole purpose was to brighten up someones day, because it's true what they say, sometimes all you need is a hug. You can find him every Thursday in the Pitt Street Mall, Sydney (Australia) from Midday.

Este video me pone feliz. Juan Mann es un hombre cuyo objetivo fue el de alegrarle el día a alguien, porque es verdad lo que dicen, a veces lo único que necesitas es un buen abrazo. Lo puedes encontrar todos los jueves en el Pitt Street Mall, Sydney (Australia) desde el mediodía.

This is one of the most viewed videos on youtube:

After this came to be, many people around the world decided to follow the example of Juan and
started doing it themselves in their own countries.

Luego de que esto sucediese, muchas personas alrededor del mundo decidieron seguir el ejemplo de Juan y comenzaron a hacerlo ellos mismo en sus respectivos países.

Wauw, I think this is so cool, such a cool thing to do. It would be perfect for making a statement, like worry what people think of you cause the way you look (tattooed, shaven head, weird clothes) get a free hug, so cool! Thanks for sharing!

Raiment Urbane dijo...

Thorofasius:Yes I agree with you & you're welcome ;).
