David Hale Sylvester is arrogant.
How arrogant?… just arrogant enough to believe that he can change the world: one hug at a time.
And, why shouldn't he be arrogant...just a little bit?
Since losing a lifelong friend in the tragedy of September 11, 2001, David has done the the unfathomable by traveling throughout the planet and hugging over 250,000 people!!
To many, the experience of just engaging that many people would be overwhelming but not David, or Big Dave as he is known to his friends.
Big Dave is fueled by meeting people because he has discovered that there is a nourishing kernel of happiness, warmth, understanding and wisdom deep within each embrace.
These kernels drive Big Dave to give service at hospitals, shelters, schools and other charities around the world.
...in fact, he’s probably somewhere smiling, hugging and high-fiving someone as you read this.
Go find him and get a Big Dave hug:)
