“Happiness, love and peace”:
Olivier Blais gives free hugs to bystanders in Montreal’s streets. He says he’s been devoting fifteen hours a week to “his mission” since 2012.
“I asked myself a question:
Oli, what do you have to do in your life?
One answer came back again and again:
Oli, you have to help create peace, happiness and love on Earth.”
“Since that moment, I have met a lot of incredible people.
These two wonderful ladies over there. If I hadn’t dedicated my life to distributing happiness, I wouldn’t have met them.”
“I wake up in the morning, I’m happier.
I go to sleep at night, I’m happier.
I surround myself with people who are increasingly happier.”
“I have the impression that I’m creating a better world
by taking people out of their individualism.”
