Today is “World Hug Day,” and Bellingham jewelry designer Wave Redfish, known around the community for giving away carved stone hearts, is asking the public to gather for a group hug this afternoon at 1.
The mass hug is a way for people in Bellingham to contribute to making the world a better place to live and love.
Redfish says he discovered the hug concept while visiting the web site www.worldpeace.org.
He also says that hugs are infectious and create a bond that can have a positive effect on how people treat each other on a daily basis.
The event will take place on the back lawn of the Bellingham Public Library.
