Hug it out!

Celebrating National Hug Day with some adorable photos.

Today is National Hug Day! It may not seem as important as other awareness days, but hugs are very important to children. Genuine affection from peers and family members promotes high levels of self esteem, positivity and strong self worth.

Make sure you let your loved ones know you care about them today too!
