Our friend Vince Marx is at it again :-)

Do you remember Vince?  He is the one who collected hugs to bring to some of the areas in Japan that were seriously affected by the Tsunami.  You can follow his story here…. After the Darkness

And now he is focused on organizing Free Hug events all over the world in honor of World Peace Day.  So far he has confirmed events in 31 Cities all around the world – from Brazil – to Egypt -to Japan – to India – and even the USA :-)

Are you feeling the pull to get involved?  We hope so.  Can you imagine being part of a day where people all around the world are sharing hugs in celebration of World Peace?

Watch the video – and as you are inspired get in touch with Vince to learn how you can organize your own invite..

And even if that’s not your thing – how about leaving Vince a message in the comment section below to let him know how his work is inspiring you…

Think I have to go hug someone :-)

Loving Life

    I want to thank Cyndi for publishing this on Evolution Ezine.

    This event has grown so fast — beyond my wildest dreams! We now have over 850 people involved, 34 cites in 17 countries, spanning 6 continents! I am in awe. I think it’s because it is such a simple thing to do. It just takes 1 person holding a sign and 1 person holding a camera. That’s how I got started, and one thing led to another. I would love to have you join the event by doing this in your city on Sep 21 (International Day of Peace). Then you can send me a video clip, and I’ll put it in the next peace video. I hope to have the next peace video out sometime in October.

    Check out my Facebook event page for more information and updates.

    Peace, love, and hugs to all,

    Vince

    I also encourage everyone to pass this Evolution Ezine link on to your friends.

    I want to spread the message to EVERY city in EVERY country that “We all the people of the world agree, that peace should become a reality…” (from the lyrics of Beverly Graham’s song “Salt of the Earth.” She’s awesome.

    Peace!

    I would love to do this. I will be in Milford Mass on Sept.21.
    Will you please tell me how to go about doing this and any details I may need to know like do I need a permit or license to do this and is there a certain time to do it? Do I make my won sigh?
    This is such a great idea. It brings tears to my eyes every time I watch one of the videos seeing all that love and acceptance.
    Thank you for starting such a loving act of kindness and love.
    Yours in Love and Light

    Thanks for the comments. When I did my first hug event, I felt a connection with the people I hugged. Later, I found myself “missing” them. It is interesting. When you hug a stranger, something happens that gives you the feeling that the person is not a stranger, but a member of your larger family.

    My first event was “Free Christmas Hugs” in Shinjuku, Tokyo. The “1 True Spirit” theme came about from the idea of sharing the “true Christmas Spirit.” I started learning how to edit videos and one thing led to another.

    That whole process was amazing, too. Having never made music videos before, I found myself “watching” them come together like magic as I manipulated the clips on the screen. I always seemed to have the right clip for the song I was using. For example, this video has Fernando Moinho giving hugs on a beach. Well, long before I even knew Fernando, I had planned on using my friend Beverly Graham’s song “Salt of the Earth” which has the line “breath of the sea” in the chorus.

    I absolutely believe that there is “1 True Spirit” guiding our lives — if we are willing to watch closely and sometimes step beyond our comfort zone.

    Congratulations on the success of your efforts. When I spent a couple of months in Japan almost 46 years ago, we learned that it was an absolute “No No” for males and females to hug in public. From your video it looks like the younger generation has loosened up somewhat, though I suspect that it is still difficult for many to break an old cultural barrier. This same barrier exists in many world cultures, so don’t be discouraged if people in some countries are not so eager to hug. Wishing you the best of luck with this great venture!

    It is true that hugging is not part of the Japanese culture. I think that’s why no other cities in Japan have signed up, yet. It seems to be more okay for a foreigner to give hugs in Japan than a Japanese person. However, it seems to be okay to hug a foreigner even if you are a Japanese person. But, yes, the younger generation has loosened up a lot. You’ll notice most of the hugs are with the young people. By the way, we now have over 1600 people signed up on Faecbook, 50 cities, 24 countries in 6 continents. Check out my website for a complete list.
