The Free Hugs Project - Ken E. Nwadike, Jr. posterSTATIC is proud to present The Free Hugs Project: An Evening with Ken E. Nwadike, Jr., Inspirational Speaker and Peace Activist, on Thursday, February 22, in the HUB Ohio Room. Doors will open at 7:00 p.m. and the event will begin at 7:30 p.m. This is a FREE event, and is open to the entire IUP campus community.

The event should prove to be a meaningful event for everyone, and quite relevant given that February is Black History Month and the work done with the Diversity Action Plan by the President's Commission on Diversity and Inclusion.

According to his official biography, “Ken E. Nwadike, Jr. is a peace activist, video journalist, and YouTube personality best known as the Free Hugs Guy online.  Nwadike is the founder of the Free Hugs Project, which produces motivational videos to spread love, inspire change, and raise awareness of social issues.  His ‘Free Hugs’ videos have reached hundreds of millions of views on Facebook and YouTube.  As a former homeless student athlete, Nwadike overcame many challenges to now owning Superhero Events – an event production company that raises funds and awareness for homeless teens.”

STATIC will provide attendance vouchers to all individuals at the event.  For more information, please visit the STATIC website or Twitter page.
