Free Hugs Day

July 6th, 2009 | Posted by Improv in Toronto in Completed Missions - ()

On a warm and beautiful summer afternoon, Improv in Toronto took to the streets of Toronto armed with Free Hugs signs! With over 100 agents, the goal was to cover the whole of downtown Toronto with hugs and blanket it with love. Agents were spread out all over, from The Eaton Centre, to City Hall, to the Royal Ontario Musuem, and all the way down to Union Station. Take a minute to watch the video we have put together.

Improv In Toronto is well on the way to becoming a leader in Toronto free and fun events. We have held Massive Waldo Searchs, Crazy Dance Partys, and Awkward No Pants Rides. All the while though, we’ve been missing something. We REALLY need a clear and defining LOGO. And you can give it to us!

The guidelines are quite open: make us something cool and classy that we can put up on our website, facebook group, and most importantly…ON T-SHIRTS! YAY.

Here’s the info you need:
We are called: IMPROV IN TORONTO
The short form is: IT

What do you get out of it? A free t-shirt, a $25 gift certificate, copious amounts of praise, as well as having your work shown all over the internet!
