We heard a lot of amazing Father's Day hug stories. Here is one of our favorites.

A Father's Day hug 6 years in the making

Following the 2010 Haiti earthquake, his father made the tough decision to send Joe and his sister to live with family in Boston and have a shot at a better life. While Joe didn't speak any English when he arrived, he learned quickly and he has thrived.

This June, Joe not only graduated from high school, he was also his class valedictorian. His parents came for the ceremony, marking the first time he has seen his dad since leaving Haiti. It also marks their first Father’s Day together in 6 years — and they have a lot to celebrate.

Joe has been accepted into Mass Art to study architecture in the fall.

  • Why hugs?

    Routine massage isn’t the only thing that can improve your overall well-being. Research shows that hugs can, too. They can boost moods, increase circulation, reduce stress, and more.

  • Share these amazing benefits with Dad

    To participate, you simply pledged to hug your dad this Father’s Day and share it on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram with #HugDrive.

    those with arthritis

    Arthritis Foundation

    For most, a hug is a simple gesture. But if you have arthritis, chronic pain can make a hug very difficult. So for every pledge we received, we donated $1* to the Arthritis Foundation to help fund research.
