New Hugs Chapter in Florida

Julian is an 10th grade student. Julian is currently on his school’s basketball and tennis team. He is compassionate and a great friend to all. Julian is really enjoying learning about motion graphics at school and learning about the motion video industry. He also has a little business where he sells sneakers and does pretty well! He spends his summers divided between sleep away camp in New York and at the beach in Ocean City Maryland.

Gabriel is an 8th grade student. He works hard in all of his academic endeavors and loves all sports, particularly football and basketball. Gabriel is currently on the the football team and soccer team at school. When Gabriel is not actually out on the field, he can be found watching football and participating in his fantasy teams. Gabriel spends his summers at sleep away camp in New York. He is also a huge Scary movie fan.

Both boys love to jet ski, boat and fish. They love to travel and look forward to our annual summer vacations; and are very good at choosing fun, new and exciting destinations. They love video games.

Julian along with his brother Gabriel, have started a local chapter of Hugs Across America. Together, they will collect and deliver teddy bears for children in crisis. They will team up with local authorities, contact pediatric wards at local hospitals and foster care facilities. They have already delivered teddy bears to 32 homeless children at The Lords Place in West Palm Beach Florida. The teddy bears were received with so much gratitude and happiness, they have asked us to do it again! The boy’s empathy and sensitivity towards others is evident in everything they do and they are looking forward to bringing smiles to the children in our community through cuddly teddy bears.
