If a stranger approaches you with a raised arm on Thursday, don't be alarmed – it's just National High Five Day, an unofficial holiday during which participants raise money for charity by engaging in an all-day high-five-a-thon.
The holiday began on the campus of the University of Virginia in 2002, when a group of students set up a stand giving away free high-fives in the middle of a quadrangle.
"We discovered two things," Greg Harrell-Edge, executive director of the National High Five Project and one of the original UVA group, told PEOPLE. "One, it's real fun to give away high fives all day. Two, we got to see it spread virally in real time."
The event became a yearly tradition, and soon the likes of Jimmy Kimmel and Today were showing up to cover UVA's high-five fest. After graduation, the friends used the day as an opportunity to stay in touch, and a few years ago they added a charitable giving component – they've since raised nearly $50,000.
