Letter from Paula
Starlight’s vision is simple yet powerful: every day, everywhere, every family. That singular idea — that no family should have to cope with a childhood illness alone, no matter where they live or for how long they need help — is what motivates us all to give so generously of our time and resources. And we are grateful for your help.
Thanks to your support, we continue to move closer to making our vision a reality. By enabling Starlight to translate its programs into Spanish and other languages, you are helping us provide life-changing resources and information to thousands more families each year. By sponsoring Great Escapes in your community and bringing Fun Centers to your favorite hospitals, you make it possible for Starlight to brighten the lives of more children, moms, dads, brothers and sisters a little each and every day.
We estimate that it costs only $12 to provide the entire range of Starlight programs to a family for one day — which means that every dollar makes a huge impact. Each time you vote in a contest, buy a product benefiting Starlight or have your guests make a donation in honor of a special occasion, you are making a real difference in our efforts to bring Starlight families out of the dark.
If you’re interested in hearing more often about how your support is changing lives in communities across the country, I invite you to connect with Starlight through our social networks. We’re sharing wonderful news every day about Starlight families and supporters on Facebook, Twitter and our blog.
On behalf of everyone at Starlight, thank you for all that you do.
