Welcome to Glorious Hugs! Motivated by a mission and supported by a strong Board of Advisors and team, our goal is to deliver joy, emotional support and opportunities for connection. For example, consider these statistics on seniors in the US and Minnesota:
- Half of all women aged 75+ live alone, according to the US Department of HHS, 2008
- 66% of caregivers are female and half of all caregivers work fulltime, according to the Family Caregiver Alliance, 2015
- 54,000 seniors in Minnesota live below the poverty line and 32% of all seniors have one or more disabilities, according to Minnesota Compass, 2015
After you send a package, follow up with the recipient to get their reaction to the pottery, hear about the poetry, discuss the questions, share the snack, and view the videos on the artists together.
