Hi stranger, here's a hug for you!
Volunteers from the Singapore Kindness Movement giving the public at Orchard Road free hugs.

A small stretch of Orchard Road in front of Ngee Ann City turned into a "kindness zone" yesterday when passers-by got free hugs, high fives and balloons from strangers.

Several shoppers even got a little reprieve from the afternoon sun when some of the 20 volunteers sheltered them with umbrellas.

The two-day event, which ends today, was organised by the Singapore Kindness Movement.

It aims to encourage people to be kinder and friendlier to one another.
