Robyn's Rainbows

Tor with her Robyn's Rainbow, in September 2007.

"Thank you so so much for the lovely surprise... it really did make my day and put a smile on my face and tears to my eyes."

"She was really thankful for her balloons. She said it helped lift her when she most needed it."

“You should have seen their faces when the balloons popped up. Believe it or not we still have the balloons, they are still playing with them although they are trailing the floor now!”

These are just some of the reasons the Robyn's Rainbows Initiative exists. The project aims to support members of the transplant community who are struggling more than usual, by sending a balloon in a box. The balloon is a little beacon of hope, signifying that something better may be around the corner...and hopefully, brings a smile to the recipient's face.
