A virtual hug is better than no hug at all
This project was built in conjunction with LifeCouldBeBetter.com. The brainchild of Kate Hudson, HelpHugJapan.com is built upon the feel-good-ism of giving a virtual hug via "liking" on facebook. With a little math it was figure out that 492,800 likes would equal one gigantic hug around Japan.
It doesn't involve money. It's the thought that counts. Send some hope over there; they need it. Virtually hug Japan here...
But don't forget that they need donations too...the second part of this project was to bring awareness of three great charities: For the people - American Red Cross; for the soldiers helping - Soldiers Angels; and for the animals - American Humane Society.
