Sometimes the best ideas come from the most unexpected places…
The Rainbow Mission started as a result of a sweet note of gratitude from a grandma who purchased a Peppercorn Kids headscarf for her granddaughter. The note mentioned how her little girl, who had lost her hair to chemotherapy, fell in love with this new headscarf. This little kind and sweet note made us feel that all these things we do each day make a difference and we can bring joy to children in need.
The grandmother told us, “The morning we took Clara to the hospital, we went outside and in the gray, rainy sky there was the most beautiful rainbow.” This rainbow became a symbol of hope and joy to the entire family who all drew tons of pictures of the rainbow and decorated Clara’s hospital room. Peppercorn Kids thus chose to name their foundation The Rainbow Mission in honor of Clara, her family and all children in need.
“I am a mother of two children and this conversation really touched the deepest part of my heart, I felt – this is the time and this is the right thing to do. One happy moment.. a smile .. or a confident-self from these little heroes, would make our mission complete. This is the best moment I had experienced in my whole career." - Peppercorn Kids' founder
The Rainbow Mission: December 2012
Peppercorn Kids shipped 500 headscarves to the patients at St. Jude Hospital - a non-profit cancer research children’s hospital. Thanks to our loyal customers, business partners, our suppliers and the Peppercorn team.
See how you can be a part of our mission! For every 2 headscarves you
purchase, Peppercorn Kids will donate 1 headscarf on your behalf to a
child at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. Join us!
Proud supporter of World Vision in helping exploited children around the world to find hope and new life.
"They're the world's most vulnerable children. Each year, millions of girls and boys are exploited — they are raped, forced into early marriage, enslaved in the global sex trade, or used for bonded labor.Their days are filled with dread and their nights with pain. They're alone. There are no adults in their lives who offer them protection. World Vision-funded recovery centers offer resources like safe shelter, food, health care, and trauma recovery assistance for girls and boys who have faced abuse. they also advocate for the protection of these children at both the local and international level. And by partnering with law enforcement efforts worldwide, World Vision supports the prevention and punishment of child exploitation."
