Hug Someone Campaign
A percentage of proceeds from each Hug Box gift order and the Hug Box brand products (to come) will fund the Hug Someone Campaign. Each fiscal year we pick a local nonprofit organization t donate and/or to deliver hugs and Hug Boxes to someone who needs a hug.
On March 26, 2021, an EF-4 tornado wiped out a section of neighborhoods and businesses in Newnan, Georgia near Newnan High School and Historic Downtown Newnan area. The community came together quickly with many ways to help those affected. Being a gift business, we decided to create Easter Hug Boxes for the local kiddos directly affected by loss. We sent off 150 Hug Boxes to our local nonprofit Hope Global Newnan. Hope Global Initiative of Newnan is a community development corporation that provides comprehensive and holistic services and programs for the disadvantaged and underserved children, youth and families in communities, locally and around the globe. Our desire is to provide a central location that offers programs that include education, workshops, leadership and character development, mentoring, and recreational field trips. We believe that we should help people develop their skills rather than focus on their deficits. We believe that if a sense of individual responsibility is established the community at large can do life together with a sense of pride and accomplishment. Only then can we nurture, support, strengthen and transform communities by building strong families and healthy, safe neighborhoods.
