Doing more for our community

October 28, 2015 by Lee Dale

HoHoTO began in 2008 with a call to arms on Twitter: Toronto’s digital mavens can do more for our community.

From that first event and every year that’s followed, we’ve fed countless Torontonians with over $350,000 raised for the Daily Bread Food Bank.

This year, impact and opportunity are our focus, as we bring the digital community together in support of organizations that directly affect beneficial change in our technology ecosystem.

Organizations with impact

Participating in HoHoTO year-round, beginning with this year’s holiday event Dec 11, 2015, are a number of organizations who are helping to drive opportunity, diversity, and innovation in the workplace now and in the future.

HoHoTO will be the hub that connects their efforts to engage more women and minorities in entrepreneurial, digital, and engineering pursuits.

This year’s participating organizations are:

YWCA Toronto with money raised going to YWCA Toronto’s Girls’ Centre

Ladies Learning Code and their women & youth coding and technology programs

And we’re looking to bring more organizations on board to participate year-round.
