Every once in a while, you discover a person doing something so kind that you just want to join in. The lady pictured above, Robyn Rosenberger, lives in Seattle and has created a wonderful organization, TinySuperheros. I read about Robyn in an article in my local paper. Robyn and a bunch of her pals sew capes in Robyn’s workshop located in Seattle’s Magnolia neighborhood. Then Robyn gives the capes to children who are bravely battling illnesses and disabilities. The capes come with the child’s initial handsewn onto the cape.

The angel pictured in the photo above is Amelia Wright. As you can see, Amelia loves wearing her Super Amelia cape. Robyn and TinySuperheros have given away more than 1700 Tiny Superhero capes. Now this is where you come in. There are hundreds of kids wishing they could have a Tiny Superhero cape. You can provide them with a cape that is guaranteed to make them feel super. I bought one today. The capes are only $30 and if you sponsor a child’s cape, you will be sent a picture of the child you sponsored wearing their cape. What could be better than that!
I love the fact that Robyn and her helpers make their capes in my hometown. But what I really love is Robyn’s idea. It is pure kindness. I watched a show the other day called Derek. It is a brilliant tale created by Ricky Gervais about a nursing home in England. Gervais plays Derek, a fellow who helps out at the home. In the pilot, Derek is reminiscing about a resident that has just died. The resident told Derek, “kindness is magic Derek. It’s more important to be kind than clever or good looking.” I couldn’t agree more. What Robyn and her friends are doing is remarkably kind and needs our support. So I ask you to join me in sponsoring a Tiny Superhero. Our true purpose in life is to be of maximum service to God and others. Robyn’s efforts accomplish both.
