Road rage. Armed robbery. Police standoff at a Clearwater motel.
These crime activities were reported just this week in Clearwater.
What's the answer to these societal problems? A hug. A group hug.
Welcome, Group Hug Clearwater. This new, glass-half-full group is encouraging people to be nice. It's that simple.
You don't have to hug a person either. "HUG your favorite palm tree, restaurant, library, aquarium, etc.," according to Group Hug Clearwater's Facebook Page.
This old-fashioned concept may be just what Clearwater needs. What do you think of the idea?
The Facebook page of Group Hug Clearwater encourages folks to upload and post their group hug photos.
This is a "celebration of the people, places, and things that make Clearwater great," according to Group Hug Clearwater. "By hugging them. Literally. "
The promotion is being sponsored by www.canvaszoo.com. Similar group hugs have been sponsored elsewhere in the U.S. and world.
