Global Hugs Weekend 2024


Join us this weekend for a heartwarming celebration of love and kindness with Global Hugs! This simple yet profound gesture has the power to uplift spirits and spread joy far and wide.


It all started in January 2008 when I took a leap of faith and offered free hugs. I was a bit apprehensive at first, especially about embracing strangers. But what I discovered was truly magical: the transformative power of a hug. The smiles, the gratitude, the connection—it was all so incredibly moving. From that moment on, I was hooked.


Since then, I created Global Hugs Weekend, and we’ve shared the love in seven continents, 45 countries, and 36 US states. Even Desmond Tutu joined us on two occasions!


But it hasn’t always been easy. For every yes, there have been countless no’s or non-responses. Yet, through it all, the impact has been immeasurable. Hugs have a remarkable ability to make people feel seen, heard, and valued—qualities that are more vital than ever in today’s fast-paced world.


That’s why I’ve launched the Million Hugs Mission—to showcase the incredible LOVE and kindness around us. With over 70,000 hugs and counting, we’re here to make a difference, one hug at a time.


But we can’t do it alone. That’s where you come in. I invite you to join me this weekend to spread love and positivity in your community. Whether you organize a public event or simply share a hug with your loved ones, your actions can brighten someone’s day, and change lives in ways you never thought possible. And it will have a wonderful impact on you, too.


So, will you join us? Let’s make the world kinder and more compassionate—one hug at a time.
