One group is on a mission to heal through hugs. The Human Hug Project is making the rounds to every VA hospital in the country to give every veteran a hug. Started by 2 veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder and a military wife, they say they believe the power of touch can do a lot to help suffering veterans cope with their symptoms. Their story was featured by HooplaHa, which highlights people doing good things in the world. So far the Project has been to more than 30 hospitals.
