Every cape comes in a keepsake box with a welcome package, explained Rosenberger. So we really want the kids to know that this cape is actually a symbol that theyre part of a squad. We call it the Tiny Super Heroes Squad. Tiny Super Heroes is Robyns baby and its been no small feat. The mother of two started it as a side venture four years ago while working as a software engineer when she wanted to help kids with diseases and disabilities. “The fact that we can make something that brings families this tangible source of courage and hope is priceless. Its been by far the most challenging thing Ive ever done but also the most rewarding.” Rosenbergers venture went up, up and away when she was featured on NBCs Today Show. “We had 400 orders that day. And I remember it was like a month later and we were going to be on another big station and I was like, I either need to quit my job because I was sewing until one in the morning. I need to quit my job and make this work or I need to quit sending capes.” She took a leap of faith and made the capes her crusade. She applied for a grant from Arch Grants and got it. Now 50 capes a week are flying out of her tiny office in Warson Woods, MO to kids in 16 different countries. “Were in a 400 square foot office which is an upgrade from my basement and um…were doing well. So I always think about it were just gonna go one cape at a time. When the capes are done, Robyn sends this hug in a box to its new super hero. “It just kind of brightens their day and gives them something else to think about besides therapy or going to the doctor,” says Liam’s mother, Rebecca Fields.
