Toronto Scavenger Hunt 2014

March 29th, 2014 | Posted by Improv in Toronto in Completed Missions - ()

Come out and participate in our largest event, and Toronto’s largest annual scavenger hunt!

Every year we work very hard to create the single best scavenger hunt out there, and this is our fifth year doing it. We are incredibly excited to see this years event take place! Please help us spread the word, as the more people who come out, the more fun this event is!

The Details:

When: Saturday, May 3rd from 1:00 PM – 5:00PM
Where: Nathan Phillips Square
What to bring: A backpack, a metro-pass/day-pass, something to take digital pictures with, and about $10 for certain tasks.
Wear: Comfortable clothing, and running shoes. Additionally we will be awarding a prize for the best team costume this year!
RSVP: If you use Facebook please let us know you are attending on our event, otherwise just show up!

Prizes:
Prizes are still to be announced. There will be prizes for the first place team, AND for the best team costume!

**Please contact us if any individuals or companies would like to support us by offering up prizes/sponsoring the event. It is a free event, so prizes/donations really are appreciated: improvintoronto@gmail.com

How The Events Works:

We will be meeting up at Nathan Phillips Square (north side of skating rink) at 1pm. Feel free to be early. Don’t be late!

We will be creating teams of 6-8 people, each with their own team name. If you come alone, we’ll be sure to find you a group, and if you come with friends, don’t worry you can stay with them! Groups can be smaller than 6 (if people want), but no bigger then 8.

The scavenger lists will then be handed out, as well as posted online. The list will contain tons of activities found throughout the downtown core. You will be tasked to complete challenges, find obscure items, solve puzzles, find answers, and take silly pictures. Some will be easy, and others will be quite challenging

You will have a max of two hours to search. With bonus points awarded if you return early. We will be meeting back up at Nathan Phillips Square to tally the points.

Let the scavenge begin!

Upcoming: Gifts for Strangers 2013

September 24th, 2013 | Posted by Improv in Toronto in Completed Missions - ()

Gifts for Strangers, is a world-wide cause to spread kindness and goodwill around the world. The concept is as simple as it seems, we hand out gifts to random strangers.

We started Gifts for Strangers here in Toronto 3 years ago, last year 33 cities around the world joined us. This year we hope to improve that number, by spreading the movement to even more cities across the world.

One should never underestimate the power of kindness. Like a flame, kindness can spread from one person to another. Changing the world, as if by storm.

To get a better idea of how the event works, check out this video from one of the previous GFS: http://youtu.be/pNqFN5L5a6AGifts for Strangers

————————–———————–
JOIN US IN TORONTO:

When: December 21, 2013 at 1pm
Where: Nathan Phillips Square
What to bring: Gifts! (see below)
What we do: Give gifts to strangers!
-
Why: It is common for us to become centered on spending money and time with the people we know and love during the holiday season. We’re going to ask you to switch that up, and to put some time into brightening a strangers day. Because not everyone has that family member or friend to go to during the holiday season.

————————–———————–

More information:

The event is pretty self explanatory, we ask you to either make gifts or buy affordable presents. Spend whatever you think is reasonable. The more important part, is thinking about what type of gift would make you smile, and bringing that to life. Then we’ll be giving these gifts to random strangers.

Your gifts could be something you create, like visual art, a poem, or a mix CD. Or a something you owned or purchased for relatively cheap, like a yo-yo, teddy bear, or a good book. Just remember, be creative, and make it personal!

Wrap each present individually! Along with each gift, we ask you to write a personal card. Write a heart-felt message. Something honest and open. And make sure to include “From one stranger to another, Happy Holidays”.

Make as many gifts as you like. And keep track of what is in each one. So that you can hand it out to the right age/gender/type of person.
