HUG TOUR

Last April, Lauree Ostrofsky, a Bethesda life coach, decided to embark on a tour to teach people to "hug like they mean it."

She started in April in Washington, D.C. with the intent of emphasizing the importance of showing appreciation for one another, WUSA reports.

"I realized people wanted this more than I knew."

She tweets her whereabouts and if people are nearby, she'll stop and hug them.

The tour, she told WUSA, has changed her life.
