Please consider donating to the following two social causes the HoHoTO community has supported in the past. After a decade of success our holiday fundraiser is on hiatus.
YWCA Toronto – Your donation will help YWCA Toronto help women and girls flee violence, secure jobs, find safe, affordable housing and develop confidence. You can designate an area for your gift such as Girl’s programs.
Daily Bread Food Bank – With your help, we are fighting hunger together. Daily Bread is a thought leader in research on hunger and poverty reduction.
Serving the digital community has been rewarding, but with some changes to the team that’s brought you HoHoTO over the past four years and helped carry on the legacy of this amazing community event for the past decade, we’ve made the difficult decision to not host in 2018 the annual HoHoTO celebration.
For almost a decade HoHoTO has been many things: it’s been a holiday party in support of a great cause. It’s been a dance, a raffle, a tweet storm, and a photojam of Toronto’s digital community. It’s been about meeting new friends and old. And in doing so we’ve raised almost $500,000 for local charities to date!
We’re looking towards 2019 with some amazing youth programming and professional events, and are open to ideas, collaborators, leaders, and volunteers to bring together our amazing community at a holiday party next year. Would you like to build and continue the annual holiday party? If you want to help bring this community together, we have some great ideas on how to transition the event for the next generation. Please get in touch.
What a thrill HoHoTO 2017 was. Hundreds of individuals from digital communities in Toronto filled the Mod Club on December 8th for a night of food, fun, networking, and most importantly, fundraising for up and coming digital practitioners at the YWCA Toronto’s Girls’ Centre. Please select the video above for some of the feels.
