STARLIGHT PROGRAMS AND IMPACT. Each year, more than 30 million children in the US suffer from a chronic, critical or terminal illness. Many of these kids experience long hospital stays, painful medical treatments and sometimes a scary and uncertain future. Starlight turns pain, fear and stress into fun, joy and laughter – because a sick kid is still a kid at heart.
Starlight has several proprietary programs, including Starlight Wish Lists, a commerce site where users can choose and purchase items to donate to fulfill local children’s hospitals’ needs, and Starlight Sites, treatment rooms, fun centers and hospital lounges that are transformed into kid-friendly environments. Learn more HERE about Starlight's Programs and Impact.
All donations are timely, transparent and tangible, and donors receive a tax receipt for their entire contribution. Starlight also distributes large-scale product donations, helping facilities meet their evolving needs and maximizing limited budgets.
HOW STARLIGHT WORKS. Starlight Children's Foundation partners with world-class brands and companies, charitable foundations, socially aware groups and organizations and philanthropic individuals to bring entertainment, education and innovative technology to sick kids through our nationwide network of community partners.
