Buy a Toque, Give a Toque
For every toque purchased, we will give a toque to a Canadian experiencing homelessness
One of a kind...
Straight from the heart, our Canadian handmade toques are made out of hockey socks. That’s right, you heard it correctly!
We repurpose hockey socks into premium quality toques.
The ones we sell are made out of brand new soft knit hockey sock material. The ones we give are made by fully repurposing hockey socks that we collect from the hockey community.
With the original material made for the game of hockey our hockey sock toques are crafted for tough situations, double-stitched, and made to last.

Official launch of TFTH
We began reaching out to friends, family, and the hockey community for hockey sock donations. We drove all around the GTHA and collected over 300 hockey socks in our first month!

Selling our first toque
We received a kind donation of 500 new hockey socks from Athletic Knit. With these socks, we began repurposing them into toques and selling them to help us grow our operations and repurpose more toques for the homeless.

First toque delivery to the homeless
On Christmas day, we hand delivered our first 50 toques to the homeless in the GTHA. Seeing all the heartwarming smiles of gratitude, we knew at this moment that we could truly make a difference in the lives of Canadians experiencing homelessness.

Giving toques to non-profits
We began giving many of our toques to non-profit organizations who make gift packages for the homeless. Our first batch of toques that we gave was 50 toques to Spread The Love TO.

Making toques with senior citizens
We held toque making sessions at Highgate Residents and Chartwell Residents in Ancaster, ON. All the toques that the residents made were given to the homeless in their community.

Selling at hockey tournaments
We attended LUG hockey’s first playoff game of the season where we sold toques, collected socks, and spread the word about our cause. After selling toques directly to hockey players, we decided to create a special line of NHL hockey team toques, as well as the option to reach out to us directly for custom team toques.
March 15, 2020
In our first four months, together we gave away 500 toques to Canadians experiencing homelessness. We also collected 1200 hockey socks, many of which were repurposed into the toques we give.
Our toques that we sell have been completely redesigned with improved quality and looks. They are double-layered for added warmth and comfort, softer, stretchier, and more durable. We sell both plain toques and NHL team toques. You wouldn't guess our new toques would be made out of hockey sock material unless we told you.
We fully restructured and established ourselves as a social enterprise dedicated to giving a toque to every Canadian experiencing homelessness. We are now able to make a bigger social impact selling and giving toques Canada wide. Read our news article for more information:
