What is Sister Hugs??

Love Bombs?? Sister Hugs?? What exactly is that? How does it work?  How much does it cost?  How do I get involved?  ....these are some of the questions I've heard in the last week.  I want to answer those with an example - we have a family of mom/dad, and 2 boys who have offered to do the shopping and filling for specific recipients.  This time they chose a 15 year old girl who has lost every immediate family member (mom, dad, brother), one by one during her 15 years.  Together they chose items and then we added specific SH touches, like the hanky and 31 bag, to send to her.  The goal is to let her know she has an army of sisters and brothers out there, keeping her in our hearts and prayers.  Hopefully the Love Bomb spreads a little cheer during a rough time.  

Other love bombs are a collective gathering.  People donate new items and each love bomb is built specifically for that recipient, a gift from here, a gift from there.  We try to personalize each gift and send hugs, coast to coast.  We have 10 Love bombs being sent this week. New nominations are always being accepted via FB message and email, people gather to build these Love a Bombs, and help is always welcome.  Once we have a location, it will be much easier to get physically involved.  


  1. I just received my first ever love bomb and it was amazing. It couldn't have come at a better time. Only thing is I don't know how you got my name, and maybe that's not important, but I would like to know who to thank and how to be involved. God is so good!

  2. We do promise those who nominate that they will remain anonymous. Usually they wouldn't mind, but sometimes they prefer the recipient to simply feel the love that comes from near and fat. I will pass along your gratitude to the person who introduced you to us. :). We're happy to have you on board - if you feel like a "sister" you already are!! Glad the Love Bomb brightened your day and timing was good. Hugs!!
