Ho Ho TO!

Happy Holidays! StaffLink is proud to be a sponsor of HoHoTO, a Toronto fundraising event for the Daily Food Bank. HoHoTO is about getting together to decrease poverty and hunger amongst the citizens of Toronto. Not to get all glum and earnest on you but HoHoTO is about helping feed people:
  • In Toronto, people just like you made more than a million visits to food banks last year.
  • Food bank use is growing – up 15% nationally in 2010 over 2009.
  • More than 34% of the people relying on food banks in the GTA are children
  • The median monthly household income in Toronto is only $1,000.
Hunger in the GTA is caused by a lack of money not a lack of food. And that’s why HoHoTO was created — to help the Daily Bread Food Bank with desperately needed funds.

The first HoHoTO event was created two years ago through Twitter where it was conceived, organized and sold out within nine days. HoHoTO has recognized by Queen Raina of Jordan and Twitter co-founder Biz Stone in this 48 second video:

To purchase tickets or make a donation go to Tickets will sell out quickly!

Enjoy the holidays! I'll be smiling and enjoying time with family. I wish you and your families a restful and joyous holiday season.
