ABOUT JORDANA'S RAINBOWS:
Jordana Fiorini gained her angel wings on January 22nd 2016 at the young age of 10. Jordana was diagnosed with Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Giloma (DIPG), a cancerous brain tumour that affects children in their early years of life. DIPG is an underfunded and underrepresented disease that has a 0% survival rate.
Jordana's Rainbows was started by Jordana's mom Alison Fiorini. Alison's message is simple. She wanted to create a movement on all social media platforms, not only to represent her beautiful and colourful daughter but raise awareness for this horrible disease and ultimately spread love and kindness.
All funds donated to Jordana's Rainbows are directed to DIPG research at Sick Kids Hospital in Toronto.
THE JORDANA'S RAINBOWS WISH BRACELET
It all started...
On July 1st 2016 Stefania was nominated for a kindness challenge posted on Jordana's Rainbows Instagram page.

Within hours we received many requests for the bracelets and could barely keep up with the overwhelming number of orders.
In August of 2016, the official Jordan's Rainbows Wish Bracelet was created in support of DIPG research at Sick Kids Hospital in Toronto. The 7 colours of the rainbow paired with a single gold heart was created as a reminder not only of Jordana, but for all the children suffering from this disease.
To end off Paediatric Cancer Awareness Month in September of 2016, Love & Above donated $10,000 dollars to Jordana Fiorini's fund at SickKids Foundation for DIPG research.
Just in time for Christmas, Love & Above was able to donate another $10,000 to Jordana's DIPG Fund.
Love & Above donated another $20,000 dollars to Jordana's Fund allowing them to raise $40,000 in just 9 months of operation.
The RAINBOW WARRIOR Wish Bracelet
In partnership with Jordana's Rainbows, Love & Above has created a special Wish Bracelet to support children battling DIPG.
Every couple of months Love & Above donates 50% of net-proceeds from the RAINBOW WARRIOR Wish Bracelet to a child in need.
