March 30th is National Hug-A-Thon Day in South Africa! The event is being launched by the Variety Children’s Charity and will benefit their Water Relief Campaign, which aims to provide water pumps in schools without water. Singer Shaun V. is pitching in by providing a song called “This Love Could Be,” which will be the campaign’s theme song.

So how exactly will this event help the water campaign? It looks like funds will be raised mainly through the Hug-A-Thon stickers sold by the charity for R5.00 each, but that’s not the only good thing Variety is hoping to get from this project. Executive director Toni Gomes says,

A good hug warms relationships between people. That’s what the national Hug-A-Thon is all about. A hug has universal meaning of support, concern or just a way of saying “I’m here for you”. This is an ideal opportunity for all South Africans to unite and show support for each other and our country.”
