An interesting website that I have found. I'm sure it sounds a bit silly but sometimes the small things can make a big difference.

In my class every Friday, we dismiss in an unusual way. Normally the kids just roll on out, but on Fridays, they get to make a request. They can request a hug, handshake or a bonk on the head. I know it is only anecdotal but I do marvel at is how the requests change from week to week. People really do just need a hug out of the blue.

    Yeah, I haven't hugged anyone for about a year or more - probably 5 years if you don't count family. I have very little physical contact with people and I often feel the need for a hug but the girls round my way are ugly as sin so I choose to avoid it.

    I am a great hugger - although hugging a stranger is not that comfortable for me. Only some men can hug properly so I tend to stick to girls. Not sure if this free hugs campaign would be beneficial to me!
