This Indigenous Woman Stood Blindfolded And Asked Strangers For Hugs

You might need some tissues for this one.

1. A video was posted this week, showing a woman named Jasirah blindly putting her faith in humanity…literally.

2. Armed with a sign, she stood on a beach and asked for hugs from complete strangers.

3. There were some big group hugs…

4. …and some teeny tiny hugs.

5. It’s pretty great to watch some people’s reactions.

6. Especially in light of this statistic shown in the video.

7. Keep on hugging, Australia.
