Time for giving

What are these 2 young ladies up to? Not protest, for sure!
see for yourself
ok, the photo was crappy, the sign reads Free-hugs. Their action didnt seem perculiar to me, 'cos I first read about it at Barcelona DP.
At the time of the photo, I didn't see anyone coming forward for a hug though. Anyways, bless the two for having the courage and put the cause into action. Never underestimate the power of hug, someone will surely benefit from it. Let's see if i'll bump into them again today. Fingers crossed!

Find out more about

ps. am finally up to date with my post...cant tell you how relieved I am!

I hope you'll let us know if you find out anything more. I'm curious!

This whole movement tickles my fancy! Looks like fun, too. I guess it depends on who's doing the hugging.

mon anglais etant leger leger, j'avoue ne pas tout comprendre avec cette histoire de 'free-hugs'

my English being light light, I acknowledge not all to understand with this history of “free-hugs”

Carlos said...

I would have given them a free hug myself. I wonder why no one accepted the offer.

I am agree with you. But perhaps the problem is what we give?
Consumism is eating Christmas.

Hugs from strangers are not that important in every day life to me. However, when I have a difficult spot in life (for example when a loved one pass on) I benefit tremendously from every hug received. Bravo for these ladies.

Zsolt, you are right!!
in shanghai, there is an organization in shanghai, we called it "bao4 bao4 tuan2"(抱抱团),in literally, bao4(抱)=hug,tuan2(团)=organization. the members in it just do the same thing as the 2 girls in this shot:free-hugs. But I have no chance to meet them...:P


Kris said...

i was on a bus . unfortunately we didnt have time yesterday to walk that street as we were busy shopping :s

i agree with you too. I admit that i'm lost in the materialistic of christmas rather than the spirit :)
