The real problem is not getting people to care about a loved one's issue or an organization's mission. It's finding a solution that empowers people to feel connected to the spirit of the goal.

Making real-time, trust-based and relevant support accessible and inclusive motivates us to build, design and give back every day.


I've asked myself for years: if everyone could hear from the voices that matter at the right times, how many more goals would move forward? Does connectivity really matter? How much does the value and rate of emotional support influence our mental health? The answers I've found fuel the user-experience our team has designed and the voice-tech platform we have built. I named it hollarhype in a google chat message to my first team member after a long and late brainstorm about farfetched voice technology ideas, and how they might someday help charity runners.

Years earlier, when I was in college, my days were spent at the track where I put forth my best effort with a competitive team. Often injured, I felt pretty disconnected from the training cycle of my team. Months of alternative workouts in the pool or on an elliptical machine came and went with the seasons, and sometimes it was really tough to stay motivated. Like most people who feel isolated in their journey towards a goal, I wished I felt better supported. I learned throughout those years how valuable contextual support is—like when a teammate came into the gym to hype up the end of my 90-minute workout, or when my dad would surprise me at a meet hours away to remind me the day wasn't about running a fast time, and more about getting back out there.

I started asking myself, how can we make that kind of deeply contextual and experiential support more accessible?

Fast-forward to 2017 when I mentioned my idea for emotional engagement to my co-worker who I designed marketing campaigns with.

Since 2019, our team has helped charities support beneficiaries and volunteers on our platform, enabling real-time voice messaging between them and their supporters. We've helped them curate messages from their heroes to trigger for their whole group at the right times. We've helped them fundraise from donors in a way that creates a shared experience.

Through our platform, we've helped them feel unified.
