Fandom With Purpose

Turn your passion into action

When kids are facing hospitalization, a moment of escape through their favorite fandoms can be transformative, helping kids heal through the power of imaginative play. 

Play is a therapeutic tool for kids in hospitals, helping them cope with stress and discomfort while promoting emotional healing and overall well-being. That's why Starlight created Fandom with Purpose, a program for communities to channel their love for iconic worlds and fundraise for programs that promote play for hospitalized kids. 

So, how do you turn your passion into action? Help raise funds to deliver the magic of your favorite stories and franchises to children in hospitals through Starlight programs. Together, we can help kids fuel their imaginations and develop a sense of unity and belonging because happy kids heal faster.

    Be a Hero to Sick Kids

    Whether you fundraise online, at conventions, or at your local game store, do something that brings you joy and unites your community.

For just a moment, we can transport hospitalized kids to another universe. They are immediately distracted from their situation when they get to talk to their favorite characters in full costume, or become that character themselves. The magic of the movies is right there in the room.
