BENEFITING: Mental Health America
HugTrainUSA's annual train ride around the US, to raise funds for Mental Health America, is set to depart from Greenville, SC on Dec. 26. The 20-stop, 2 week train tour aims to raise awareness about mental health and spread happiness and joy- via a hug. "Mental health is important to everyone and the holidays are a tough time for a lot of people," says Arie Moyal, the events founder. "People cannot travel to see family and friends. But they do enjoy receiving a hug- even from a stranger." Arie's goal is to raise $20,000 this year, in memory of his friend Trey Pennington.
