I happened upon this video about The Free Hugs Campaign in Hollywood; it featured the classical song “somewhere over the rainbow” sung Israel Kamakawiwo’ole his melodious voice captured me and stimulated my curiosity about The Free Hugs Campaign.

I searched YouTube and I found dozens of  International Videos for The Free Hugs Campaign.

Scroll down and you will find a small number of these inspiring videos.

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

As defined Wikipedia:  A hug is a form of physical intimacy that usually involves closing or holding the arms around the neck or waist of another person…

I would like to address this in another post. Until then, here’s a compilation of The Free Hugs Campaign International Videos. It is worth noting the cultural differences in the receptiveness to being hugged.
