The Free Hugs Campaign became famous, internationally in 2006 as the result of the following music video called "All the Same," on YouTube by the Australian band, Sick Puppies.

Free Hugs Campaign

Free hugs is a real life story of Juan Mann, a man who's sole mission was to reach out and hug a stranger to brighten up their lives.

While National Hug Day in January and the Free Hugs Campaign in July share many similarities, there is no actual association between the two.

This is great! I love hugs, from light one-armed hugs to big old bear hugs, they're all great.

While I much prefer real-life hugs in person, I also enjoy cyber hugs from friends all around the world. Who knows, maybe cyber hugs will become real hugs one day when I meet an e-friend in person.

      Hi Pat,

      This is great! I love hugs, from light one-armed hugs to big old bear hugs, they're all great.

      While I much prefer real-life hugs in person, I also enjoy cyber hugs from friends all around the world. Who knows, maybe cyber hugs will become real hugs one day when I meet an e-friend in person.

      Hugs!
