The sad reality is that every minute of every day a child is admitted to hospital in Australia and unfortunately thousands of these children are then faced with a diagnosis that can change their life, and the lives of their family, forever.
The Starlight Children’s Foundation transforms the hospital experience for these children, by replacing pain, fear and boredom, with fun, joy and laughter.
Starlight relies on the Australian public to deliver its programs year after year and in 2012 Starlight is calling on over 5,000 volunteers nation-wide to help raise $2 million in its biggest event of the year; Starlight Day 04 May 2012!
Starlight Day will see Australian men and women from across the nation selling Starlight wands, stress stars and key rings in an effort to transform the lives of seriously ill children and young people.
Funds raised on Starlight Day will guarantee Hospital Programs such as Captain Starlight, Starlight TV, Livewire and the Starlight Express Room can be maintained in all major paediatric hospitals around the country.
