A huge part of our ability to help the Daily Bread Food Bank comes from the donations made by sponsors of HoHoTO. We’re eternally grateful to the generous and savvy sponsors who’ve chosen to support us in the past. So far, sponsors have come to HoHoTO in one of two ways – they’ve either reached out to us directly (thank you!) or we’ve found sponsors from our own networks of clients, colleagues and friends.
But here we are in the middle of an *awesome* community that is more plugged-in and connected than ever before, so we’d like to reach out to you and ask you for your help.
Can you help HoHoTO meet some new sponsors? We’d love to hear your ideas for folk we should reach out to for support. A name and contact info is really all we need, we’re happy to do the persuading ourselves.
Of course, if you’re willing to convince people for us, that would be even more awesome. So – why should companies support HoHoTO? Simple: a commitment to HoHoTO directly connects their brand with one of the hottest and most influential events in the local social media calendar. Think about it: the HoHoTO audience is a Who’s Who of the local tech, media, digital marketing, social media and PR communities. Supporting HoHoTO ensures a clear connection between our sponsors and some of the most connected, wired and influential tech users, creators and consumers in the GTA and beyond. Of course, supporting local food banks is a truly important cause – if you can do that AND connect to this community in one go, what’s not to like?
And if you support HoHoTO, we support you. When you come on board as a sponsor, it becomes the personal mission of our team to ensure that everyone at the event (and thousands more following the blog posts, tweetstream and mainstream media coverage) will get to know just how terrific you are.
This year, the need for food bank funds is greater than ever. Please be generous with your creativity and ideas. We know there are people in our community who will support us – we just need to find them.

Thanks for your support!
