Everybody Needs a Hug: Get Closer

Man in cartoon bear suit hugging

Get Closer (click for video)

This video is guaranteed to move you. Pro Infirmis put a man in a cartoon bear suit offering free hugs to see how people would respond. The hugs are very sweet, but it isn’t until the end that you find out that the man in the bear suit has a disability. The point is that there is a tendency for people to look at those with disabilities differently and keep some distance. Instead, we should get closer.
