Extraordinary Times Require Extraordinary Measures

Starlight Children’s Foundation Canada has been helping seriously ill children and their families for over 30 years. Now in these desperate times of COVID-19 and our children’s isolation, we need YOU more than ever! Right now, thousands of seriously ill children are isolated in-hospital or at home.

During COVID-19, hospital visits are more difficult on kids and teens than ever. With many pediatric patients being immunocompromised, these children are at the highest risk of infection and their lives are dependent on isolation. Now more than ever, their time in-hospital is spent alone in their room – no visitors allowed or toys and games to play with for fear of infection.

Seriously ill children out of the hospital are sharing those same feelings of fear and loneliness. Starlight children with pre-existing conditions are still vulnerable and isolating with no end in sight or any play dates with friends to look forward to.

While families feel helpless and children feel lonely, our newest Play From Hospital To Home Program is here to provide some comfort and smiles to both parent and child. Each pediatric patient or immunocompromised child confined to home will receive their own amazing entertainment pack to avoid the fear of infection and help focus on the fun!

Happiness shipped safely to homes and hospitals, these packs will include board games, crafts, toys, virtual shows, and countless other interactive activities designed to provide valuable distractions to isolated children. With your help, we can let them know they are not alone, and far from forgotten. 

For $100 today, YOU can help bring smiles, laughter, and joy to an isolated, scared child.

The need is urgent, the ask is simple. 100% of all donations received for this program will be used to bring happiness into the hospitals and homes of vulnerable children. We hope you, our donors, will stand tall alongside us as we continue to serve these children.
