“Don’t feel sad for Stephen, just spread kindness in his name. I’d like everyone to hug for Stephen!
“Stephen believed in the power of positivity and kindness for the sake of spreading good. Good Gestures Day is the perfect way to keep his message alive. A hug can’t heal everything but it makes us all feel better.
“It’s a lovely way to remember him this year by showing how powerful it can be to try to make things better for everyone, no matter what you’re going through.
“We want as many people as possible to get involved and post their hugging pictures online. They could hug their granny, their dog or even a tree! It’ll put a massive smile on everyone’s face.” - Jane Sutton
