Your diary is full? Don't worry you can still help the children by sharing this event and also following this link:

The first grassroots cause associated with Hugs for Change is the Yellow Butterflies Foundation, or Fundacion Mariposas Amarillas (FMA), a small organisation for slum children and families in Colombia. Set up by OSCAR CORTES, who himself was a homeless child in Colombia, the centre provides services and supplies on nutrition, education, and childcare to families in under-served slums and is solely made possible by the hard work of local and international volunteers and donors.

Bring your spare change for the raffle prizes, and be prepared as you will want some hugs, and you might win at the auction!!! Maybe you'll join us straight from work and need a little more than a nibble - you will find a delicious menu available to buy from on the night.

Thanks to the generosity of our venue 'The Apartment" who have kindly offered a percentage of any additional purchases at the bar so it is effectively cocktails for a cause!

Hugs For Change is the brainchild of Melbourne resident, NATALIA DEWIYANI: " Every dollar donated for a hug goes towards my lifetime goal of being able to donate a million dollars to charities by sharing one million hugs." Hugs For Change creates a space for people to reconnect with each other through the simple act of hugging. Focusing on grassroots causes, providing access to water and education, raising awareness of social heroes around the world, Hugs For Change delivers on its mantra one gold coin and one hug at a time.
