Free Hugs At The Desert Ridge Marketplace

I found this nice video clip the other day and wanted to share it with you all.  It's got nothing to do with real estate, but in the spirit of the season, I just wanted to share something that made me feel good.  These two young men were at the Desert Ridge Marketplace offering free hugs.  It's a nice jesture!!

The Free Hug movement started a couple of years ago in Sydney, Australia by a young man who goes by the name of Juan Mann.  I had not heard of it before now, but apparently it's fairly wide spread, as he's been a guest of the Oprah Winfrey Show.  If you'd like to read more about it, Click Here to go the official Free Hug website.

Disclaimer: 1. The very end of the video contains some questionable language, so if you don't want the kids to hear it make sure they've left the room before the end of the video.  2. I have not investigated the website completely, so enter at your own risk.  It appears to be some type of talk show that these two young men produce on a regular basis.  Most of the topics appear to be fairly innocent, but I didn't get a chance to view everything.  Again, enter at your own risk.
