(WCBD) — An organization founded in 2015 is aiming to bring awareness to PTSD by showing love and kindness to others, ‘one hug at a time.’

That’s the mission of The Human Hug Project. It was created by three veterans who experienced PTSD, and seek to help others cope with the disorder. Their goal objective is to travel across the country giving out hugs to veterans at VA Medical Centers and anyone else in need of some simple kindness.

People with The Human Hug Project has hugged more than 20,000 people in 13 states, including the nation’s heroes, their loved ones, and staff at more than 30 VA medical facilities across America.
