Special Post: Cuddles For Charity Beijing Edition

Cuddles Around The World, Raise Money for Cancer Research UK - in Beijing, China
(The Cads and Bounders)

So me and my irish friend Paul Clarkin went around Xidan in Beijing on a cold February day, giving out hugs to people on raising money for the Cancer Research UK.

Being Chinese myself I knew that the majority of the people in China don't really use hugs as a greetings, so we knew this would be a tough challenge. However the result turned out to be pretty amazing and fun at the same time!

Here I've made a 2 mins clip with the cuddles we had, hope to encourage people all around the world to give hugs wherever you are, record and send your video to The Cads and Bounders who organised this event: Raise the target amount of £10,000 and kick cancer in the nuts!!

  1. love it! what amazingly warm energy on that cold day! I love how the split second of confusion on some of the people turns to , "well, ok, I'll try it" and then they are so happy that they did.
