About Us

Hotwheels for Hope was founded by Raphael McGlynn when he was in the 6th grade (2017). He was supported in the beginning by his classmate Niels. 

About Raphael:

My name is Raphael and I am 14 years old. I grew up bilingually in German and English. I have been to Germany many times and have grandparents there.

I live with my mom, dad, and cat. I like to ride my bike, play sports, and read books. The sports I play are soccer and basketball. In the future I would like to be a scientist or engineer.

I was inspired to help the children of the world after I heard a story about Syrian refugee children. So I decided to give the children a little bit of joy by giving them small toy cars.
