Get a hug… give a hug!

Hugs are an essential part of being human. They are comfort, connection, reassurance and love. They are a welcome, a beginning and an ending, and they make us feel good.

This pandemic has left a big gap where our hugs used to be.

We’ve been noticing all the hugs we’ve missed, and all the hugs we’ve had to hold back, and we started thinking… imagine if you could take those hugs suspended in time and send them across the world.

And so we invented The Hug Generator.

We have been collecting tiny hug stories from people across the globe, and storing them here in The Hug Exchange. Together they make up the world’s biggest growing collection of hugs.

Our Hug Generator will share with you a hug in words described by another human somewhere in the world. It might be a story, a memory, a poem, a feeling or a description of a hug. Get your hug moment by clicking the button below.

Once you’ve received your hug, you’ll be given the opportunity to write your own hug story to be added to our ever-expanding generator and sent to others.

Share your hugs. Change the world.
