Because every moment in a child's life is not just important but also vital to their future. Through the lens of hugging we empower the young generations to thrive and be unshakable by having them realize that their authentic self is enough.
Hug The Moment is not just a movement, we are an educational 501c3 non-profit whose mission is to create, engage and implement SEL (Social Emotional Learning) in schools across the USA. We provide the tools for them to to thrive both inside and outside of the classroom.
Hug The Moment journey began with a story book about the Hug Store. It is a beautiful tale of self-discovery that illustrates how life’s greatest gifts are closer than we think.
The story itself is inspired by Rick's daughter, a 5 year old Shana who, when asked for a hug from her Grandfather, told her Grandfather that she was all out of hugs and had to go to the store to get more!
Through Shana’s adventures, your child and you will learn more about self-awareness, self-reliance, and develop a greater understanding of affection and compassion.
In their own words
It All Starts With You
