The Digital Party

Some people run for causes, others start bake sales. We're creating a party below. Our campaign's progress is shown through this animated New Year's celebration. Every $1,000 raised towards our $20,000 goal will add 1 of 20 pieces in The Build Up of the FS 250 truck. This Digital Party depends on you and the donations we can gather together. Join us by donating now directly to Big or small, every cent counts. And invite ALL your friends to the party too!

The Real Party

You didn't think we were just throwing an animated Digital Party did you? New York meets Paris in the 1920's at 3LD Art & Technology Center. Join us where we'll be continuing the journey with Love That Fever and start the new year with 5 DJs, dance, interactive art installations and energy you won't find anywhere else in New York.

  • Why New Year's? Why water?

    We believe New Year's shouldn't just be a celebration of a new calendar year and the reason we wake up with a massive hangover. It should be a time when we celebrate the meaningful changes in our lives. Changes that we create together.

    Noo was created with the purpose of celebrating new beginnings with creativity and exploring where culture celebrates. Along the way we discovered many places where culture DOESN'T celebrate. Not because it doesn't want to, but because it simply can't.

    We decided this year we would help and celebrate new beginnings in OTHER people's lives with something we take for granted - water.

    Why water? Because it changes everything.

What's noo?

Noo is an itsy bitsy creative startup in New York founded by Mahdad Taheri and the team at TVI. We're not funded and pretty much don't make any money yet, so unfortunately we can't quite do one of those "we'll match your donation" kinda things. But you can learn more about Noo here and meet the TVI team here.
