FREE: Valentine Hugs
A hug makes a difference.
Actress, Kristi Ray offers something free at Times Square, a place where you rarely find something free.
Her warm embrace and charming smile brighten up the day of many individuals who need and deserve a hug on Valentine’s day.
She said, “This world needs more kindness, more positivity, more selflessness, instead of sitting around complaining about it, I got some newspaper and glue and decided to brighten up my city. The idea was to pay-it-forward. Random acts of kindness go a long way. I'm hoping once I put a little magic back in their hearts, people offered that spark to the next person, and the next, and the next until there's a love epidemic growing from the harsh and busy streets of New York City.”
She lost count after giving 500+ hugs, but she felt pretty confident that those people felt the love.
I believe that most of us would agree on what Kristi had said, "All you need is love."
