–LOLLIPOPS & RAINBOWS FOUNDATION was founded by 8-year old Emily Grace Reaves (who stars as “Cindy Lou” in the Hannah Montana Movie). Emily, along with family and friends will celebrate the foundation’s official launch with a star-studded, celebrity event at Universal CityWalk in Hollywood!
Emily believes in the “power of youth” which is what the LOLLIPOPS symbolize. She believes no matter how young you are, you can make a difference. The RAINBOW symbolizes “beauty of all colors”—regardless of color or race, your true beauty lies within.
The foundation is dedicated as a tribute to Emily’s grandfather Dave Reaves who came up with the idea 10 years ago. The event offers free admission and promises to be the biggest, star-studded fun-filled party of its kind in 2009! Not to mention it will help raise awareness towards 4 special charities closest to Emily’s heart.
Lollipops and Rainbows supports (4) specific causes/organizations to encourage everyone to get involved and support their charity of choice:
* THE “PEACE” LOLLIPOP – The Peace Fund (Protect Educate Aid Children Everywhere)
* THE “FAITH” LOLLIPOP – Saint Jude’s Children’s Hospital
* THE “LOVE” LOLLIPOP – Society of the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA)
