Brighten Lives Through Program Sponsorship
You can make a lasting and meaningful difference by helping to bring more Starlight programs to the millions of families coping with serious childhood illness.
Great Escapes™ Family Activities
Starlight’s Great Escapes family activities provide families with recreational opportunities and a chance to have fun together away from the hospital so they can regroup, make special memories together and return home with a renewed sense of strength and hope. Throughout the United States, thousands of seriously ill children and their family members participate and enjoy fun-filled Great Escapes activities each month.
Starlight needs your help to continue to offer Great Escapes to families in need!
Starlight SiteTM Care Rooms and Playrooms
Starlight Site care rooms provide a warm environment in which young patients can receive treatments. Making the rooms warmer and more comforting helps make the child’s experience less frightening and at the same time increases his or her cooperation during the treatment process.
Starlight Site playrooms, teen lounges, waiting rooms and playgrounds are beautifully designed, inviting hospital environments created to provide pediatric patients and their siblings with a place to relax and play during their hospital stay. While each is unique, every Starlight Site offers respite from the tedious routine most pediatric patients face.
Fun Center™ Mobile Entertainment Units
Fun Centermobile entertainment units include a Nintendo Wii™ gaming system, a DVD player, and a Sharp AQUOS™ LCD television.
Their design allows kids, even those who aren’t able to leave their beds or who have limited motion, to play with ease. Fun Centers roll right up to the side of young patients’ beds or anywhere in a hospital setting, making them perfect for hospitalized children in numerous situations: anticipating surgery, during long outpatient clinic treatments, waiting in the emergency room or fighting loneliness after visiting hours have ended.

Starlight has produced a wide-range of online games, ezines, webisodes and interactive websites to help sick children understand common hospital procedures and manage illnesses and injuries such as cancer, sickle cell, cystic fibrosis, asthma, Crohn’s and colitis, severe burns and kidney disease.
