The Grit

Free Hugs | New Friends

Shot with iPhone

This is strange. I've seen these types of images online, but I've never seen it in action. It was the middle of the afternoon and these ladies were out offering free hugs. You would think that 3 attractive ladies would have a line down the block of men waiting to be hugged; not so. I watched as people walked by perplexed by their offer. I myself was skeptical, but I was intrigued by their energy. I walked up and asked if I could photograph them instead of getting a hug and one said "You can take our picture PLUS get hugged" Win / Win. I asked why they were doing this and one said "Why not, sometimes a hug can make someone's day." She was right, after the hugs, I felt happy and uplifted.
