Claire and I (Melanie) are excited to host three events for Random Hacks of Kindness Toronto over the next few weeks! Here are some more details on the actual events. If you have any questions please email rhokto@gmail.com!

“Hack the Hackathon” Design Jam and Social: June 1st from 10:00 am – 9:00pm

On June 1st, we invite designers, developers, creative technologists, system thinkers, process and service desingers, subject matter experts and anyone who loves a good challenge to participate in the Hack the Hackathon Design Jam facilitated by Commons11. We are charging a small fee for participants to secure their spot, and to ensure that we can accurately plan numbers for food and the social afterwards. The money will go to a RHoK Toronto Seed Fund which is dedicated to providing RHoK-preneurs with resources or tech infrastructure to keep their projects going.

The RHoK Satellite event: June 1st & 2nd at Bento Miso, from 10:00 am.

This will be held at Bento Miso, which will be open from 10am- 9pm on June 1st, and 10am – 5pm on June 2nd for people to participate in the Global Hackathon! We won’t be organizing any pitching or judging, but if you want to hack on projects around the world, we encourage you to join a global team or another city by finding interesting projects on rhok.org. We will connect you to the project of your interest, and we can stream the judging for those who are interested.

The RHoK Feedback Forum: May 25th and June 2nd, 10:00 am- 4:00 pm.

On Saturday May 25th and Sunday June 2nd, we will be inviting previous participants to join us for a series of more intimate conversations where we can find out what resources are needed for RHoK projects, teams and to find out what worked and – more importantly – what didn’t work. This is a chance to tell organizers your ideas for RHoK if you can’t participate in the day long design jam.

We’re excited about seeing where the next phase of RHoK takes us and we hope you will join us to be a part of this process!

To maintain the spirit of inclusivity and openness in the RHoK community, if you aren’t able to pay the price of admission, we have set aside some free tickets, just email us and we’ll set you up. If you want to volunteer, sponsor or write about us, please email rhokto@gmail.com.
