Gimme a hug!

I was leisurely walking to work this morning and lo and behold, a huuuuuuuuge group of young people in the same t-shirt, with some posters. Hmmm, a protest?

Nope!

They’re dispensing hugs, lots and lots of hugs. Lots and lots of free hugs.

Free hugs volunteer

Organised by SpunOut.ie, they’re trying to raise awareness and promote positive mental health and wellbeing. Hugs 4 Health. That’s what they’re saying. Afterall, it’s the basic of human touch that keeps us warm and fuzzy, happy and accepting. I’ve got a few hugs in the process of it of course. ;-)

So if you are at around St Stephen’s Green area today between 9.45am and 12.15pm, go on, get some hugs. It’s good for you!

Ps: there’s a photocall at 12.15pm and Ray D’Arcy will be there, so if you have long dreamt of hugging him, this is your chance… :p
