Superman Hall of Heroes inductee Robyn Rosenberger has an ability to inspire and empower children who need it the most. Through her organization, TinySuperheroes, she seeks to empower extraordinary kids who exemplify strength and determination as they overcome illness and disability. With a mission to empower TinySuperheroes everywhere, one cape at a time, Rosenberger has touched the lives of more than 4,000 kids.
Rosenberger and her family have been blessed with the task of building TinySuperheroes from the ground up! TinySuperheroes sends capes to Extraordinary TinySuperheroes, who exemplify strength and determination as they overcome illness or disability. Once those Extraordinary TinySuperheroes are comfortable in their new capes, they share their stories in hopes of giving them a voice, their illness or disability a face, and the world the opportunity to stretch.

TinySuperheroes began in August 2012, when Rosenberger dusted off her sewing machine and made a Superhero cape for her nephew’s second birthday. She then made one for her son and dog.
Around the same time, she began following the blog of a sweet girl named Brenna who was born with a very rare and severe skin disorder. She realized then that, while her nephew and son looked cute in their capes, Brenna needed one. She contacted Brenna’s family and sent her a cape in January 2013. She then shared her story on our blog, and in that moment, TinySuperheroes was born.
Since sending Super Brenna’s cape and featuring her story and revealing her TinySuperhero identity, the nominations have continued to pour in. By January 2014, Rosenberger had already sent more than 4,000 capes to 15 countries and all 50 states.
