Our National Good Gestures Day event was held in Market Square, Sunderland town centre on Saturday 10th May.

Our event was so much fun and I even feel like I've made some really wonderful new friends! We tend to be too suspicious of each other these days which is why I believe this campaign is so great - most people are kindhearted, we just don't get the chance to show it!
Feedback from members of the public was great! You can read some of these comments below:
'I think it's a great idea! All this positivity is bound to be uplifting and it can lift you out of any situation. Someone could have been walking around with the weight of the world on their shoulders and out of nowhere they've gotten a free hug from a stranger. How could that not cheer someone up.'
'I think it's lovely to look around and see all these bright T-shirts and young people, making others happy.'
'I've never heard of this before but I think it's a nice idea!'
'It's great! You all look so cute in your T-shirts hugging people and fist bumping them!'
'You've made my day!'
