My Story


Hi there, my name is Claudia. 
I am half Portuguese, half Italian, born in South Africa and living in England x

I live in gorgeous village just outside of Winchester with my 3 boys, Broden, Chase and Trent. 

I started I Am Super capes in 2014 after being part of a large collection which was sent to the Philippines after Typhoon Haiyan hit. We sent 350 boxes via a charity called Mercy In Action (based in Bath) but I wanted to do more. I got the inspiration from a blog I read but wanted to offer the capes for free.

As our first mission, I wanted to make superhero capes to send to the children in the Philippines. Something to relight their imagination, something that is just for them, that is bright, captivating and as my oldest son said, ‘something to give them the power to be children.’

It has grown from strength to strength, to date we have gifted over 500 capes here in the UK, South Africa, the Philippines and Lebanon. But I want to send out more, there are more little heroes that need their cape.

Thank you for taking the time to visit I Am Super capes, I hope we can inspire you to join in our quest to give every child the POWER to be children.
