She is a “super”  fourth grade student at George O. Barr School in Silvis.

Arika Wadsager is doing her best to make it a brighter day for kids with disabilities or illnesses.

Arika, and her friends Gabby Lodico and Kelsey McGuire string beads and design bracelets.

Arika understands “Different is Beautiful.”

Arika bought the beads with her allowance, sold the bracelets, and sent that money to Tiny SuperHeroes. That’s  a national organization which honors children with illnesses or disabilities for their courage and determination.

Tiny SuperHeroes is based in Seattle.

In return, Arika receives personalized capes and awards them to children.

Gabby Lodico has spina bifida. She received a cape.

Kellsey McGuire is a Tiny SuperHero.  Kellsey has epilepsy. She proudly wears her cape.

Her faithful sidekick, a black lab mix named Jasper, is Kellsey’s service dog. Arika gave Jasper a cape as well.

Jasper  alerts  Kellsey’s  parents whenever the little girl has an epileptic seizure.

Arika also received a cape from a person who wanted to recognize how dedicated she is to promoting Tiny SuperHeroes.

Arika wants the SuperHeroes  to know they are extraordinary. They deserve to be involved, and they are special to other people!
