All About You! Celebrating 30 Years of the Raine Study

It’s been a long while coming but we’re thrilled to announce that we’re making a book! And not just any book – it’s a book that’s ALL ABOUT YOU, our very valued participants of the Raine Study, and all that you have contributed as part of the Raine Study over the course of the last 30 plus years.
The reason for this book is to celebrate our amazing history by telling the stories of the people without whom there is no Raine Study – YOU. So whether you’re one of the original “Raindrop” babies, parents, grandparents, babies of original babes – whoever and wherever you are, we want to hear from you!
We’re looking for short anecdotes of your memories or experiences with us to compile and share with photos taken over the years. It doesn’t need to be long, about 3-4 sentences at most. Your story could be about any part of your involvement with the Raine Study including:
• Funny moments;
• Lasting or favourite memories;
• What your experience has been like;
• Something interesting you’ve learned because of the Raine Study;
• Why you participated/continue to participate;
• What you hope will happen in the future because of your contribution.
If you have photos of yourself from over the years (bonus if you can send us then and now pics) that you’d like included, please send them too. Just make sure that you (and anyone else in them) consent to have them published.
Please submit your stories and photos to us either by private message on social media or email ( If you have any questions about the project, please don’t hesitate to get in contact.
