Rogers $25 Raffle Ticket Deal – Touch Gloves!

[This is a guest post from Elise Ondet, part of the Social Media Team at Rogers]

Spend $25 on tickets, get warm device-happy fingers for you and help feed a family of four!

Hello, HoHoTOers!

I’ve got good news for your cold-but-device-happy fingers AND your conscience: Rogers has partnered up with HoHoTO so that the first 100 people to find a Rogers team member after spending $25 or more on raffle tickets at the event will get a complimentary pair of device-friendly touch gloves! While supplies last of course, but there are 100 pairs!

You’re also helping out a family of four at the same time, since $25 will provide them with an emergency food hamper.

Here’s how the Glove redemption will work:

  • Once you purchase $25 or more on raffle tickets, take your tickets to a member of the Rogers social media team (we’ll be in our red shirts so you’ll know who we are) and show them your tickets.
  • The team will then mark your tickets and give you your pair of complimentary Touch Gloves so you can still tweet up a storm while you are outside.

Looking forward to seeing you all at HoHoTO tonight!

Change the game, play by no rules

Remember this story of St. John Elementary school kids organizing dress-down days to support HoHoTO?! Well, their goal was to raise $250 and they beat it. They have now raised $500 for Daily Bread!  The school’s logo in the Gingerbread sponsorship category just changed the game, and these kids aren’t even coming to the party. If they can do it, can you?

HomeStars more than doubled their donation of food and funds since they joined HoHoTO as a sponsor.

Sequentia Environics originally came on board with $500 sponsorship, and has just decided to up that to $1,000.

Today, we challenge our sponsors and sponsors-to-be to up your sponsorship levels!  We give you the party of parties, and you give the food to the hungry people of Toronto. Deal?

Food drives ahoy!

Can’t make it to HoHoTO, but want to make a food donation?

Our friends Homestars, Hailo, and Sapient are running food drives for HoHoTO and the Daily Bread. Hailo Toronto has made space for food donations at their office at 219 Queen Street East. Simply drop off your canned, non-perishable goods by Friday at 5pm, and Hailo will deliver them to the Mod Club in time for HoHoTO, in their spiffy Hailo yellow cabs.

SapientNitro started running a food drive way before food drives for HoHoTO became cool. We are grateful for your efforts and food offerings.

Ho-Ho-HomeStars Holiday Open House is on today!

28 of HomeStars excellent staff and over 100 guests come together for holiday snacks and Christmas cheer over here. All donations of non-perishable items will end up at the Daily Bread Food Bank. Thank you HomeStars for your non-perishable support of HoHoTO.

Thank you!
