FreeHugEventsNZ's mission is to create more Connectedness, Acceptance, Love & Happiness, one hug at a time.

Hugs make you feel connected
Hugs greatly reduce stress
Hugs are a silent way to let people know they matter

In a country where physical touch is often not the norm, our love language or need of physical touch through hugs is often not met and although only a small part of loving a wonderful life, they are incredibly important.

We have a number of unhappy and stressed people within our community, not in getting their hug quota met.

Take a moment to imagine right now, how awesome you might feel getting a loving and meaningful hug? You will feel happier, calmer, less stressed, and more loving, that's from just 1 hug and you could get a number of hugs from different people at this and future events.

Our group of volunteers is made up of people from within the community who are happy to give hugs filled with love and compassion.

Imagine living in a city where we smiled and more often shared a kind word and a meaningful hug with a stranger or loved one...

We will be at the far end of the Harbourside markets near the Solace in the Wind 'Naked Man' Statue

Come and grab a hug, you will be so happy that you did.

Follow us on fb, all our events are posted there. (Auckland & Wellington)

If you would like to get involved and be part of a movement spreading love, kindness, compassion, 1 hug at a time, we still have volunteer positions available, get in touch today.
