Posted March 22nd, 2009 - 5:12 pm by from Niteroi, Brazil (Permalink)
Yesterday, 21th March (I know it's a delayed message...but....) we've been experience a true one CS Day in Niteroi with the CS gang over there. First, a nice trekking around the Rocks in the Itacoatiara beach, and then, we've been chillin' out and relaxing for a while on the beach too, then, we've ended up celebrating with some folks the Free Hugs Day (CAMPANHA DO ABRAÇO, not Abraços Gràtis, for Christ sake...).....a kind'a of little get together with an unforgettable barbecue prepared by Gianluca and his crew (Vinicius, Claudia, Mélanie, Tiago Ney, Alessandra and etc.).....(awwwwwwwww)....
So, i hope you've had great moments yesterday around the globe folks...like we've had.... :D
Happy Free Hugs Day to everyone!

Algumas vezes, um abraço é tudo que se precisa. Esta é uma estória da veridica de Juam Mann, um homem cuja única missão era se aproximar de um estranho e abraça-lo e assim alegrar essa pessoa.
Nessa época de falta à conectevidade social e contacto umano, o efeito da Campanha do Abraço se tornou fenomenal.
Propague essa campanha, passe-a a um amigo e abrace um estranho. Se você fizer isso a uma pessoa, já é o bastante... =)

Sometimes, a hug is all what we need. Free hugs is a real life controversial story of Juan Mann, A man whos sole mission was to reach out and hug a stranger to brighten up their lives.
In this age of social disconnectivity and lack of human contact, the effects of the Free Hugs campaign became phenomenal.
As this symbol of human hope spread accross the city, police and officials ordered the Free Hugs campaign banned. What we then witness is the true spirit of humanity come together in what can only be described as awe inspiring.
In the Spirit of the free hugs campaign, pass this to a friend and hug a stranger! After all, If you can reach just one person...
