This project started from my own personal goal to collect 1 million hugs in my lifetime.
I have hugged many people before I started capturing photos with the people that I hug. One day, my friend joked that if I collect $1 a hug I would be a millionaire.
Great idea! I can become a millionaire!
But, I want to be a a different kind of millionaire – The Collective Kindness Millionaire.
I want to prove the world that every bit count and you can be part of something greater.
I invite you to be part of ONE MILLION HUGS project and be a Collective Kind Millionaire together! 🙂
LET’S HUG THE WORLD!

It was an experience to present without laughter. Apparently, they are filming next door. Alas no group hug this round to keep the noise down. Nevermind, because happiness is more than just hugs and laughter. It is the essence of your soul. I had the opportunity to hug more people instead. Thanks for the hugs everyone 🙂 My message is to bring humanity into work, to create genuine connection between staffs and patients, and most importantly to be a happier person. When you are happy, you have more patience to face challenges at work. I'm glad at the end people still come up to say they love the presentation. Even if I had to curb my enthusiasm and energy in half. 05.06.17
D716: BEAUTIFUL STRANGERS These beautiful strangers excitedly read my shirt out loud ,"Free hugs" You can guess what happened next. I asked if they want to do a video with me and share positive vibes with the world. They make my day. There is still a whole lotta kindness in this world. Their messages bring faith to humanity. 31.05.17

D695: POST PRESENTATION GROUP HUGS AT Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre Bringing happiness to the work place. I hope everyone is reminded to bring humanity at work : to treat patient as people not number. To proactively decide to be happy. Happiness starts with you. If you can be happy at work, life will be even more enjoyable. After all, we spend most of our time at work. The best part of presenting is getting these hugs afterwards 🙂 Thank you for your kind words, love and hugs. I receive them with gratitude. 09.05.17

D652: WHEN YOU GET 45 HUGS IN A DAY No group hug post presentation today. But how lucky am I that 37 of the new staffs were patiently lined up for a hug? This is my first longest hug line to date. How adorable 🙂 It's a great opportunity to hug the team who work behind the scene from the engineers, the researchers, the scientist. I wouldn't have seen them otherwise. It humbles me to hear they are inspired to take on the positive vibes in their life. A reminder to create a connection, a hug, a sense of humour and laughter to create an amazing experience for the staffs and cancer patients. I got more videos to upload too. Even got a bonus hug from staffs members who used to look after me on my way out. 03.04.17
It beams my heart when someone ask for a hug. Then I remembered I was wearing my free hug t-shirt 🙂 ... See MoreSee Less
D643: SATURDAY HUGS ADVENTURE It makes my day when someone spotted my free hug t-shirt and ask for one. Loving to finally hug the vivacious Jewelchic - Megan Castran and her vivacious tribe. And ending it with a birthday hug for Madeleine Bull! 🙂 Hope everyone have a huggable weekend 🙂 24.03.17
D282: LOVE IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING - Grazyna #sixwordwisdom I went to the Cathedral for Good Friday with Kim and another friend Teresa. As I'm about to exit, a stranger smiled at me and I smiled back. Then, I motion forward to hug her. After all, she seems so huggable. We hugged and she proceeded to tell me that she's on remission for cancer. I replied, "Me too." We swap our cancer stories as we introduced our name to each other. She told me how she was in a war. Fascinating, how you can met a random stranger, heard their struggle and had a great laugh. Teresa and Kim thought I knew her and I said,"Nope." Teresa can't stop laughing and said to me, "I don't talk to strangers." I gather a little lady on a walker can't do me harm haha. Do you talk to strangers? 25.03.16
D638: WORLD'S HAPPINESS DAY Today is UN International Happiness Day. I was invited to speak at an event initiated by Action for Happiness Australia. The energy in the room is amazing. My principal is to evaluate your rule of happiness. Simplify it. Make it easy for you to be happy. My new rule of happiness: I am breathing. I am happy I want to bring this message to corporate world. PS: The spiral group hug is the best 🙂 Thank you everyone for your love. 20.03.17
D626: HOW TO BE AN IRRESISTIBLE HUGGER Helma confessed that she doesn't hug a stranger. But today, she hugged us. And, she have a very important message to share. 08.03.17
The face of kindness : Melissa.
This morning, I called Print Locker Custom T-shirts to change size of the t-shirt I ordered. I'm planning to wear it this Friday. I was meant to pick it up in 4 days but the woman on the phone said she'll get it done today. Before I hang up, I asked her name. "Melissa," she said.
I walked in and I opened my arms for a thank you hug. She probably wasn't expecting hugs from a stranger but she gave me a warm hug anyway 😂
Then, she said,"I printed on both sizes just in case." She gave it to me out of kindness. Later, I found out she owns the business.
What a blessing to receive kindness today. It warms my heart. I asked her if we can have a hug photo.
So many kind people in this world. They are everywhere 🙂 ... See MoreSee Less
The best kind of hug from a stranger that you could ever get. Meet Louboutina, or Loubie, a golden retriever who’s become world-famous for her doggy hugs.
