All kids deserve to be empowered. It’s just that it’s harder for some kids to find the emotional and physical strength, despite how much support encouragement they receive.
Robin Rosenberger, a mom from Seattle, recognizes that kids battling cancer and other ailments need a little extra help. Which is why she started giving capes to kids in need of some “extra strength,” according to the New York Daily News. At first she just made the capes for fun for the kids in her own family, but after reading the blog of a little girl with a severe skin disorder, she realized the capes could also be used by kids “who exemplify strength and determination as they overcome great adversity.”
Once the kids receive the capes from Robin, she features them on her blog, Tiny Superheroes, “in hopes of giving them a voice, their illness or disability a face, and the world the opportunity to stretch”
Kids with emotional wounds are also the recipient of Robin’s extraordinary capes, too. Three hundred capes have been shipped to Boston for kids affected by the Boston Marathon bombing.
Take a look at a few of the tiny but mighty superheroes who wear their capes with pride and great power:
