About the campaign

Design-A-Gown is a nationwide campaign, hosted by Starlight Children’s Foundation, that invites people to design and vote on the next Starlight Gown. Starlight Hospital Wear replaces traditional hospital gowns with ones that are innovative, comfortable, and brightly colored. Submit your design by April 30th for a chance to win.

What makes you happy?

The 2020 Design-A-Gown contest asks people to create a design for a Starlight Gown with a simple question in mind–what makes you happy? At Starlight, we know that happy kids heal faster. It’s why it’s at the core of all our programs.

Imagine the thing that sparks joy in your life also bringing joy to hospitalized kids! It’s a powerful ripple effect with endless opportunities. Your love of unicorns or sunrises or pizza can be used to help deliver happiness to thousands of hospitalized kids who could use a little “happy” in their lives.
