Give a Hug Today
Hugs are often the first step in the process of healing. Not every hardship can be avoided, but a hug can always be given. We’re on a mission to facilitate the largest group hug ever by engaging community members in giving tiny reminders of hope, love and safety. Check out our projects below!

We can’t prevent every kind of traumatic event, but we’re taking steps in the areas we can. Natural disasters happen and, while we can’t stop them, we can promote safety and weather preparedness to prevent a natural disaster from becoming any more than just that.
