Re: Free hugs.......???

Right....here is the plan:


Do a dry run in Zug (including a few beers at Pickwicks). We need 5-10 people minimum. Date wise, i am thinking Saturday 2nd September.


Then main run in Zurich. We need to find a company to sponsor us, i.e they donate 1CHF per hug to a charity. For this we will need as many people as possible.

Any thoughts or suggestions welcome!!!

cheers

We first need to establish which charity this will go to...also, let's sit together and figure out what companies we will ask. I meanwhile, will do a letter for request of sponsorship.

Re: Free hugs.......???

Cancer Reasearch would be my preference. I think across the board most people know of someone affected by cancer.

Maybe even something more specific like Men's Tesicular Cancer (which does not get enough exposure IMO)

Don't matter to me...general cancer research would do it for me though.
