WATCH: Healing PTSD One Hug at a Time

The Human Hug Project is made up of three people with three different lives, but all face one obstacle- PTSD. Together, they are the Human Hug Project. Ian Michael is a veteran of Operation Iraqi Freedom. Gino Greganti is a veteran of Operation Enduring Freedom. Erin Greganti is a Marine Corps wife who experienced war and its aftermath at home.

The Human Hug Project is using their own experience with isolation, anxiety, and depression to help other veterans cope with theirs - all through the healing power of a simple hug. Their objective is a simple one: to travel across the country giving out hugs at VA hospitals. Human Hug Project has visited more than 20 VA facilities, but are aiming to hit every VA in the country and have a gofundme to help them accomplish that!
