The 1st Annual Hug-a-thon took place throughout the metro Denver area. Small in number, big in heart was the theme for the day. Hugs were shared with hundreds of people as Hugs Members pioneered into various communities opening hearts and building smiles. Into parking lots, parks, and stores we could be found. Lines had developed to receive hugs—no one was turned away without a hug, a “Give a Hug” sticker, and a smile. We received invitations to share hugs at other locations. Even Denver’s Channel 4 News wants us to keep them posted of our events so they can help get our message out and recruit more participants.
What a great impact, for Love DOES Win!
