StarPower Kids-Helping-Kids Initiative
A program for young people who want to commit their time, energy and resources to help other kids.
The Power of Youth
Starlight's StarPower program was created to showcase the power of young people who engage in meaningful community service to help other kids.
Use their own personal “star power” to brighten the lives of young people who are battling chronic illnesses, life-altering injuries and life-threatening diseases.
Volunteer to help spread the word about Starlight and how others can reach out to help seriously ill children and their families. And, where appropriate,
Organize and/or participate in fundraising efforts to help provide programs and services for Starlight families.
Brighten the life of a sick child with a StarPower card!
It’s easy to help! Starlight is looking for student groups to make hand-made birthday and feel better cards* to be distributed to the seriously ill children Starlight serves. Starlight will make sure that your card is delivered to a child in need of a spirit-lifting surprise.
In acknowledgment of outstanding philanthropy, Starlight will reward any school or other group that returns 500 or more decorated cards with a commemorative plaque.
Participating StarPower children and teens are encouraged to be as creative as they can to get more kids involved! Students have filmed and recorded commercials to air on their school’s morning announcements, created flyers for neighborhood families, partnered with local businesses to get the word out, and engaged in competitions with other schools -- just to name a few great ideas.

There is no required donation to participate in this program. However, to offset Starlight’s cost to deliver the cards, we recommend a minimum $1 donation per card. Know that with every $12 we receive, we can provide our programs to a family for an entire week!
