We often feel like little wheels, part of a big machine we can’t influence. Sure, we vote once in a while but, most often than not, we feel helpless. Just to retreat to our family and friends. Create our own life in our small circle of loved ones.

It doesn’t have to be that way.

Take Juan Mann. An Australian who started a campaign offering free hugs to try and bring humanity back to Sydney. He didn’t have money. He didn’t have a lobby. He just had an idea built on emotion. That’s all you need when you want to make the world a better place.

Some movements just start with a hug. Give it a try, will you?
