Created by the “Hugs for Health Foundation”, the Hug day is always celebrated today, June 29th. Each year people who celebrate this holiday and want to give their support, go out and give hugs at senior citizen centers, hospitals, on the streets and other places.
The main focus is to provide some cheer up, warmth and love through hugging. The target group is mostly elderly, sick and invalid, lonely people and anyone who feels they need love and interaction.
Hug Holiday Day encourages us to give hugs to those who need them, and according to the foundation that created this holiday:
” Hug Holiday is founded on the premise that hugs, friendship and volunteer support are vital components of the overall senior care plan.”
The world needs more love and happiness, so why not mark this day in your calendar and support it by:
- Giving hugs to those who need one
- Joining Hugs for Heath
- Making a donation to this or another group
Happy Hug Day!
