Your Hugs Build a School

Hugs are the best -- they're so comforting and warm. Aw, I could use one right now, just thinking about them. And now, your hugs can build schools. Whoa, what? It's true! Hug it Forward is a non-profit that empowers communities to work together to build "Bottle Schools" out of wasted trash bottles (here's a video of how that works). So when you give a hug and tell the recipient about Hug it Forward, you can track that hug on their website and Hug it Forward's sponsors will donate $1 for each hug to fund a Bottle School.

Ten thousand hugs equal one school. Cool right? And also kind of a good excuse to hug your crush. You know, for charity.
