What is Stream Halloween?

Boo! Halloween season is here and with that Starlight is excited to join in on the celebrations by launching the very first Stream Halloween campaign from Oct. 29 – 31. The 3-day campaign invites ghoulishly fun Twitch and YouTube streamers to break out that cosplay, make deliciously spooky treats, or play your favorite horror game while raising funds to deliver happiness to sick kids. 
There will be thousands of children spending Halloween in the hospital this year. They’ll miss out on the fun of trick or treating with their friends, so how can we help?  

If you join Stream Halloween with Starlight, you can help provide Starlight Hospital Gowns that act as costumes for kids. Kids can play dress up and turn into their favorite superheroes, TV characters, or sports athlete rather than wearing the same drab hospital gown.  

When you fundraise, you’ll also be helping us provide Starlight Deliveries that supply hospitalized kids with fun toys, treats, painting materials, and more which help them celebrate these important moments.  

Every child deserves happiness and fun every day of the year – help Starlight deliver that through Stream Halloween.  

Starlight programs such as video gamesvirtual reality, better hospital gowns, and more are given free of charge to our hospital network of 800 pediatric facilities. Starlight programs help in reducing the fear and anxiety that happens when a child is hospitalized.  

Just last week we had a toddler refusing her breathing treatments and crying throughout…until her Starlight Gown arrived!

Thank you to the 500+ streamers who already Stream For Starlight! We couldn’t provide moments like these without your support.  

Make the Halloween weekend extra special and fundraise for sick kids! It’ll be a spooky good time.
