HugTrainUSA is a two week train trip around the US to spread happiness, joy and raise funds and awareness around mental health.
HugTrainUSA’s purpose is to spread happiness and good feelings during the holiday season and make people feel that they matter. The train ride also provides a forum for creating discussions and awareness about mental health.
The HugTrain concept is the brainchild of Arie Moyal. Arié has a degree in psychology and has dedicated his life to bringing about a thriving, empowered and united society.
The specific goals for HugTrainUSA 2012-13 are twofold:
- Grow the HugTrainUSA community to include as many people as possible- on as many social media channels as possible, who will help promote good mental health and/or will be coming to one of the train stops to receive a hug.
In the past 3 years, Arie traveled near and far to give people hugs and raise awareness about mental health. He has hugged hundreds of people and looks forward to hugging even more people this year!
