Taiwan: A Hug for Taiwan

Beeside made (zh)a video of his “free hug for Taiwan” campaign after he saw so many tragedies caused by the flood everyday (translation): “At the beginning, it was like other netizens said, people there were merely watching, no one dared to give me a hug. But this situation did not last long after a mother came near with her child and told him that: ‘Come, let's give Taiwan a hug, because we love Taiwan, right?’ When I heard it, my eyes behind the mask were red in tears.”
