Hoops of Hope is a 501c3 non-profit organization started in 2004 by then 10-year old Austin Gutwein who wanted to bring awareness and raise funds for the more than 15 million children orphaned by HIV/AIDS. On World AIDS Day 2004, Austin shot over 2000 free throws to represent the more than 2000 kids who were orphaned during his day at school. Since then, Austin has been recruiting other kids to join him and they have raised over $1.4 million for these children. For more information visit: www.hoopsofhope.org.
