If I raise more than $50 during my Cape Campaign, can that money go towards buying Patches?

“If I raise more than $50 during my Cape Campaign, can that money go towards buying Patches?”

This is a totally valid question! First off, let me tell that this question makes us happy because it means that you are invested in TinySuperheroes and find value in our Patches Program!

However, the short answer to this is no. But wait! Let me give you a little bit of background information about why.

The way TinySuperheroes is able to function at all is based on a pay-it-forward model. When a TinySuperhero is nominated for a cape, we then make them a personalized crowd-funding tool. All we ask is that they share it. $50 funds their own cape, and any money raised over that helps other TinySuperheroes get a cape on the waiting list. Every child nominated gets a cape – no matter what. As of right now, about 30% of people will raise funds, but they raise enough to support 100% of the Squad! 

We recognize that we are all in different places in our lives. Sometimes we are able to give a little more, and at other times we might need a little help. So, we can’t dedicate the extra money raised over to a specific patch for your cape because then our whole business model would fall through, and we wouldn’t have a Cape Program or a Patches Program at all! Not to mention, logistically, this would be pretty hard.

We do, however, offer a new FREE patch every month for all our TinySuperheroes. This patch is based on a different superpower and activity that we all work on as a Squad each month. You can learn more about that here: www.tinysuperheroes.com/patches

Thank you for taking the time to read this to better understand how this all works. We are always looking for clearer ways to explain how our process works. We know it can be kind of confusing because not too many other companies function like us!

In the end, THANK YOU. Thank you for supporting us and for believing in what we do. We couldn’t do it without you.
