WHY AM I ON THIS MISSION ?
My name is Billy Park. I am a father of two girls. I am trying to give them what every parent wants for their kids, a kinder world.
Last year saddened by all the division in our country I started a this movement The goal was simple, shrink the divide one huggable American at a time. Over the past year I have handed out thousands of buttons in dozens of states, talked to every mindset you can imagine, and hugged more people during 12 months than I have my whole life. However the most fulfilling part by far has been standing on a street corner offering complete strangers a button and an open ear. Sometimes we would chat for thirty minutes or more. Having a conversation with another person you know nothing about really is magical. No preconceptions or labels in your head reveal the true humanity of a person. I want all to experience that feeling. So I started a mission to do just that.
