What you need to know about HugTrainUSA

Here are a few things people have been asking about HugTrainUSA:

 

What is Hug Train ?
The purpose of Hug Train is to go on a Journey Bringing Love, Hugs, and Support at a MUCH needed time of the Year –
The Holidays…
Hug Train is also about raising awareness of Depression and Mental Health.

Why are you doing this during the holidays? Aren’t people too busy?
The Holidays can bring up a lot of stress, high emotions and for some major depression and even thoughts of Suicide –
Why ???
People often take for granted that EVERYONE has Families, Friends, and Places to go during the Holiday Season-
This is NOT always the case…Many do NOT see any family during the Holiday season for various reasons:
-Divorce
-Separation
-They don’t get along with their family
-Their family is so dysfunctional is not healthy to see them.
-Conflicts
-Poverty or other financial constraints
-Homelessness
-Etc…
