“Making the world a more loving place, one hug at a time…”
Welcome to ihug! This little button was created to get more people talking about hugs, asking for permission to hug, and saying that it’s OK to hug them.
The research has been done to prove that we need human contact to thrive. A simple hug is a way to connect with another person, heart to heart, in a way that refreshes and re-energizes us.
“We need 4 hugs a day for survival, eight hugs a day for maintenance, and 12 hugs a day for growth.” – Virginia Satir, Noted Family Therapist
When you wear an ihug button, people will ask you what it is. When you tell them it is a message to the world that you love to hug and be hugged, what do you think will happen? How could that conversation not lead to a hug? Our vision is that millions of people all over the world will soon be wearing ihug buttons and getting their 12 hugs a day, (or more!). Click one of these links to order your own ihug buttons today – be sure to get enough to share with others!
You deserve your share of hugs! We hope this little button will help you get (and give!) them.
