Website lets strangers offer hugs and positive messages for when you're feeling down

If you’re having a bad day and need a boost, then help is just a click away.

A website is offering people hugs and positive messages from strangers in a bid to cheer them up.

It claims to be the ‘nicest place on the internet,’ where happy people have signed up to spread their positive thoughts and feelings to those who are feeling down.





Record a hug or a positive message using a video camera on a computer or smartphone.

Upload the hug to YouTube and email the site a link. This is how all positive videos are added to the website and its YouTube channel.

Alternatively, people can send the website a download link from a site like WeTransfer or YouSendIt.

In the email to the website, posters can offer some information about themselves such as their name and location.

The appropriately named site,, lets people post videos of themselves blowing kisses, offering hugs and leaving messages to lift visitors’ spirits.



The ‘about’ section of the site reads: 'Having one of those days? Yeah, been there too.'

‘And sometimes, a little pick-me-up is hard to come by. So come on by to turn the sad into happy and the happy into a celebration. Cause this is a nice place to visit on days like today.’
