What is Lollipop & Rainbows? Emily believes in the power of YOUTH which is what the LOLLIPOPS symbolize. She believes that no matter how young you are, you can make a difference. The RAINBOW represents the "beauty of all colors"; symbolizing that regardless of color or race, your true beauty lies within. The foundation supports (4) specific charities closest to Emily's heart. Each part of the foundation's logo symbolizes a cause 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)
* THE RAINBOW - Children Uniting Nations
Emily has also decided to add the "STAR" LOLLIPOP, also known as the "wild card" lollipop and can symbolize any charity its donor wants to support.
