In an initiative to bring some sense of identity and self worth to young people who are hospitalised, Krista Raspor inspired this project and with creative partner Lia MacLeod and with designers backed by Rethink and Starlight Children’s Foundation Canada launched this wonderful project.  The project was developed by designers: Izzy Camilleri, Sarah Boyce Sargent, Raegan Hall, Rebecca Nixon, India Amara and Casey Von Esteban. Through their work these designers have brought joy to the patients who now feel more empowered and more like themselves.
“I had insight into what it’s like being there, especially as a teen, when you’re trying to express yourself and be yourself and you don’t have access or the ability to do that when you’re in the hospital,” Krista Raspor
