Don’t Worry About it, Hugs are on the House

Torontonians aren’t that cold, even if we have to be given a reason before hugging a stranger. If you’re tired of handing over cash every time you simply want someone to gather you in a warm embrace, or you’ve collected so much money from selling hugs that you want to do some charity work, then luckily for you the Free Hugs Campaign has unofficially deemed September 10 International Free Hugs Day (one of many). It’s the one day across the world when hugging passersby without charging a fee will not be ridiculed. Paris. London. Seoul. Copenhagen. Hong Kong. Come on, Toronto, everybody’s doing it—join the global cuddle movement!
