HUG Help Uplift Goodness

Meochia Thompson's avatar Meochia Thompson

HUG means Help Uplift Goodness. Many people are depressed and suicide rates are up because of loneliness, bullying or not fitting in. We need more loving embraces and support. Science proves hugs help us live longer and feel better. We lose are humaness when we forget we need each other to survive. Never underestimate the power of the human touch! Follow the arrows to receive a warm HUG on the HUG stage, it is a "safe space to embrace" and everyone's invited on it. On this stage, all people are equal. It's a 16 ft by 10ft retractable, wooden, aluminum and steel structure with a canvas roof to protect against the elements. It's painted bright red to symbolize love and oddly shaped like hugging arms. I wrote the poem on the back called, "Love Looks Like". It's also in Braille. This space was made with thought and love for all. Come HUG, sign it, enjoy performances on it, take pics & tag #hugcitygr. Get a shirt and join in, some proceeds will go to We all need to HUG!
