Finding Happiness with Bryan Temple

shadow Jan 13

Bryan just wants to do whatever he can to put a smile on peoples’ face. Sometimes this means simply going to Campus Martius and offering free hugs. In 2012, Bryan came across a Facebook group led by Holly Smee. It was Kindness Day and they became inspired to perform random acts of kindness for people across the globe, not just locally. Bryan had an idea to have family and friends come together to pass out free hugs. A bunch of people came up to the group to tell them all they needed was a hug and how much it meant to them. People were in tears saying it was perfect timing with the struggles of the holidays. Bryan says, “When you feel the embrace of a complete stranger, somebody that you’ve never met, and you know that you made their day, it makes your day too.”
