Hey! My name is Meghaa and i’m so excited to be smartreach’s co-vice president this year! I have not only met some amazing people and formed a close bond with the board, but Smartreach has also allowed me to become a more active member of the community and make meaningful differences. I joined this organization since i connected with their values and wanted to spread joy through art to the little people who deserve it the most. This non profit is not only meaningful but it’s unique work stood out to me. I am beyond thrilled to see what smartreach can accomplish in the future!

shrey gupta

treasurer

I am Smartreach Foundation's Co-Treasurer this year and i'm ecstatic to bring joy to people who need it the most in these tough times. even though i myself am not artistically gifted, it's heartwarming to help out and see wonderful acts of kindness in the world. a fun fact about me is that i like to make apps! i think it would be cool to see a smartreach app that uniquely solves a problem among hospitals and patients in the future.

About Shrey: 

amber lee

secretary

Hi, I'm Amber and I'm one of the secretaries on the smartreach bod. I love being apart of this team because we are able to work with so many people to bring kids to art during a more difficult time. I'm on this team because I have always loved working with kids and I love art, and smartreach is both. I am so excited to hopefully go and see kids in person for events, and I'm just excited to plan more events in general. A few fun facts about me is that my favorite color is purple and I started drawing when I was four!

puneet singh

communications director

Hi my name is Puneet Singh and I am the co-communications director of the Smartreach Foundation. What I love about being a part of Smartreach is that we are directly trying to impact the lives of children in hospitals who are going through unimaginable times. With just simple goodie bags or events we can spark joy in children. Putting in the work to help others is something that drives me to be a part of such a giving non profit organization. The community here is also amazing and so many people share a passion of helping others. I hope to continue being a part of Smartreach and making an effort to help those around me however possible.

I joined Smartreach because I love the mission behind it and the people in it that make the mission come true. From donating paintings to making care packages, I love what we do because bringing a smile to the kids’ faces and doing things that will brighten up their day is such a great way to give back to our community. The board is so nice and the environment is super fun and friendly!! I’m so excited for us to do even more this year, especially coming back from the pandemic, and make a genuine impact in people’s lives who need it the most. Knowing you’re part of something so impactful is amazing and the work that goes into it is super cool and rewarding

misha lee

fundraising director

Hello everyone!! My name is Misha and I am one of your fundraising chairs for this upcoming year. I love smartreach foundation because it combines several aspects and interests of my life all into one- while also giving back to the community. Everyone i’ve met through smartreach has imparted invaluable life lessons on me and has made a profound positive impact on who I am today, and I hope I can carry on this same sentiment to others in need. I am looking forward to getting more involved this year and holding more fundraisers, as well as continuing to build a strong and happy community within smartreach foundation.

About Misha: 

zach garrett

fundraising director

I originally joined smartreach cause I believed in the cause. I am someone who  dealt with extended hospital stays earlier in my life, so I know how difficult it’s like to be in that position. During my first two years on the board, we have given out art to pediatric patients at CHOC, held virtual art clinics during the pandemic, and built the foundation into something great. I have become great friends with everyone involved with smartreach, and i cannot wait for the year to come!
