Hug a Tall Person

One new idea for every day in 2011. We're talking big, small, local, international, in action and on the drawing board. Here's today's -- what's yours?

Perhaps you know a few tall people.

Today, give them hugs.

As officially declared on Facebook, today is international Hug a Tall Person Day, meant for "all those tall people that feel left out and never get hugs because they're too tall! We need one day a year when we get hugs no matter what ..."

Don't worry short people, you'll get your day soon enough (May 31, to be exact).

Check out more details and officially join the party here.
