About Us

So what is Hook Me Up Rico about anyway?

Well I started HookMeUpRico back in 2000. It began as a small e-mail list that I sent to a select group of friends, based on the simple principle of paying it forward.

I’d often have friends share things with me like:
Cool events, box seats at Raptors games, free puppies, free movie tickets, community news, jobs, discount coupons, sales even great apartments at unbelievable prices. I also had a lot of other friends asking me things like:
“Whats up this weekend”? or “Where can I find a good used car?” or “I am looking for a new job, if you hear of anything hook me up Rico”  It just made sense to me to share what I knew, and connect people.

So I started a very small email group of five people and I called it my “HookMeUpRico list”. Well it was about six months after I started sharing things with everyone that something tipped, and people in the group started giving back, and new people were asking to join the list every day.

People started sharing everything from jobs, tickets, free puppies, and movie passes to great restaurants, community events and news stories…  We even had someone request a baby… Yes they wanted to adopt a baby!!!   I could not believe it, I was amazed.

Over time the list grew and I used the power of the web and put everything on-line to open it up so good people can connect with great opportunities.

Its been 9 years now and that small e-mail list of a few friends hasgrown to thousands of members, a

blog that gets up to 30’000 hits per month, and a FaceBook group.

I like to think of HookMeUpRico as a community of friends that help each other – I think a part of all of us wants to feel connected to others.

After all everyone loves a Hook Up ;), and the only way your friends find out about Hook Me Up Rico is if you share it with them…

Hookin’ you you since 2000 ~ Rico 🙂
