Hall+Co. (formerly Ireland+Hall Communications Inc.) has formed a pro bono partnership with philanthropist Kathryn E Langley Hope’s Big Gay Bus initiative. The agency will work with Big Gay Bus to promote their efforts to softly educate the Greater Toronto Area communities on human rights and health, as well as assist the organization with sourcing corporate partnerships.

Langley Hope and Hall+Co. seek to keep the bus in operation as long as it can this year and look to expand next year
