Photo by myself at Union Square, at 14th Street and University Place.
I was greeted on Sunday by a young fellow who was giving out free hugs. He and a small group of people held 'Free Hug' signs, as part of the Free Hug Campaign. I've seen free huggers before in Union Square many times.
The Free Hugs Campaign began as a 'random act of kindness' in Australia in 2004. It has since become a movement that has traversed the globe. The Free Hug Campaign forum page lists news from free huggers on every continent.
My free hug and this fellow's good humor brightened my day. I hope he brightens yours.
A great big grin from my hugger.
