Dearest darlingest friends ‘o mine,

It will come as no surprise to you, that I’m part of a global ‘Hug Campaign’ sponsored by GISHWHES – a Guinness World Record attempt to collect at least 100,000 images of people hugging…

and I need YOUR hugs! (by 3pm central time on Sunday, August 18, 2013)

All you need to do is

  1. Take a picture of you (or someone you know) hugging someone else WHILE one of them holds a note with a message for the world. The message can be anything you want to say, even if it is simply a drawn smiley face. I put “Hugs make the world go round” on my sign…but you can put ANYTHING you want.
  2. Get the details on the Hug Campaign and how to upload your image (so it will count towards this Guinness World Record).

Don’t hesitate to let me know if you have any questions.
Happy Hugging!
