What is the campaign and how did it start?
This campaign is something that was started as a charity project for Deborah E after her album was released by Seaside Records.
It is an effort to share love for other humans and especially to encourage others that they are valued and deserve love.
There are so many people in our community that did not grow up with love and validation and need that extra boost. The idea is that it does not take that much effort to attempt to encourage others every day and that a goal of five people, with five hugs or five affirmations, is not too high of a goal for anyone to add to their schedules, no matter how busy.
Before we watch the campaign video, a quick word from two of our sponsors:
Snack Without Guilt - Your taste buds have never had it so good! 100 Healthy Raw Snacks & Treats (affiliate link) is the definitive guide to good-tasting snack foods that only sound like they are fattening.
Now, from Ileane Smith and her expertise:
Now, for our campaign video:
Through her experience, in life and as a musician, Deborah found that people have a desire >> “I desire to not be forgotten.”
If we extend that desire for oneself, it is a statement that goes like this >> “I desire to not have others forgotten.”
5 Hugs a Day addresses those desires, by encouraging a slight behavioral modification (or addition to one’s life). This modification helps to enrich our own lives while enriching others’ lives.You may also listen at Deborah E, Jazz Singer
As We Go Forward…
So, what is it that you are going to do to make a difference? Do you think five hugs (or five happy thoughts) are possible?
I think so! It isn’t exactly a tall order, now is it. So, it looks to me like nothing is standing in your way and you can get started even today, eh? See you in that next positive thought (or hug) coming your way!
