Hi y'all! My name is Sarah Brothers and I have had the honor of being Hug the World’s Co-Founder & Executive Director for 4 years now. In that short amount of time, HTW has provided me with invaluable hands-on learning, timeless memories and, what I hope to be, lifelong friendships. I have always had a heart for helping others, but at only 26 years of age, I never thought that I would find myself at a place in life where I was able to do so much good with such good people. Hug the World Foundation has allowed me this opportunity and I cannot wait to continue on this path of making our World a better place for all that we share it with!
