Our organization raises money and awareness for The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia’s Child Life Department.  HootaThon is always working to unite the student body, faculty, staff, and the community as a whole at Temple University for one amazing cause.  The money we raise will go to support our belief that every kid deserves a childhood. The money will be used for crafts, activities, and programs for the kids.





In the Fall of 2014, I decided to further dedicate my passion for technology and decided to run for an executive position within the non-profit organization HootaThon.”  Having been a former CHOP employee, I was especially eager to be able to contribute to help the children.  In December, I was elected to be the Executive Chairman of Technology which consisted of:


1)  Managing and leading the Technology Committee members by assigning various tasks and/or assignments.
2)  Oversee all graphic designs for advertising purposes.
3)  Create brochures/newsletters.
4)  Develop and manage the HootaThon website and HootaThon’s Intranet.
5)  Database Management
6)  Digital Marketing


The Vision of HootaThon:

“Igniting the spark that will change the future.”



Our Mission at HootaThon:

“Uniting Temple University by raising funds, awareness, and hope to provide the kids at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia the childhood they deserve.”
