HugTrain is an initiative that is actually crucial in these very tumultuous times. Not only does it address the increasing trend of loneliness which is causing epidemic-level health issues on par with obesity, but it also helps to reduce our aversion to vulnerability, which is the underpinning of society’s most pressing issues, by showing people the value of letting their guard down AND it shows people the power they have to change the world with even the smallest of actions.
How? By taking the simplest of actions and bringing it to as many people as possible during the loneliest, most stressful time of the year.
Every year since 2009, HugTrain travel across North America by train offering hugs to whoever requests one.
But without help, I cannot go on. I have had to cut ties with my major backer who also provided a way for me to raise money without getting kicked off disability and so the future of HugTrain is up in the air.
If you believe in this kind of thing I really would appreciate your help or your help finding help.
