Sometimes, a hug is all we need.
Free hugs is a real life controversial story of Juan Mann, a man with a sole mission of reaching out and hugging a stranger to brighten up their lives.
In this age of social disconnectivity and lack of human contact, the effects of the Free Hugs campaign became phenomenal.
As this symbol of human hope spread across the city, police and officials ordered the Free Hugs campaign BANNED. What we then witness is the true spirit of humanity come together in what can only be described as awe inspiring.
