Toronto, from the bottom of my heart, thank you. You showed the world that you care during Movember 2011 and you showed needy people across our great nation that you still care last night at HOHOTO 2011 at the Mod Club.
My first experience with HOHOTO was last year and I was delighted to see so many of the new friends I had made in 2010 in one place enjoying a big bash together in support of charity. This year was just as great if not even more so and although I arrived quite late to the party, it was a beautiful thing to be greeted so warmly by so many people with smiles on their faces. The thing I will remember most about this year’s HOHOTO is reconnecting with friends who I’ve not seen in months due to how busy we’ve all been this year – the year of the startup.
It was such a good time last year that I got involved in the organizing committee this year and though my role was a small one, it was a part of the greater sum of the hard work put in by a cadre of angels who wanted to party with a purpose: charity. Thanks to Alexa Clark, April Dunford and Michael O’Connor Clarke, our wonderful sponsors and, of course YOU, HOHOTO 2011 was the best one yet and we raised over $67,000 for the Daily Bread Food Bank.
By the way, if you want to know where on earth all the pictures are from last night I suggest you check right here. <3
Also here is Photojunkie’s HOHOTO 2011 photobooth, posted lightning fast, and Motionblur‘s set here. See if you’re in there! I’m also looking forward to Michael Penney‘s video coming down the pipeline soon!
It goes to show that Toronto is a city with heart and because of your generosity, a lot of hungry people will eat well this holiday season! Didn’t that feel good?!
If you are strapped for cash or just need to give more then I encourage you to visit this site to pledge to a random act of kindness and GiveGet will donate $5 to a charity of your choice, including Daily Bread Food Bank.
Have a happy and healthy holiday season. 2012 is going to be a big year and I look forward to seeing you all shoot for the stars.
