Extraordinary Times Require Extraordinary Measures

Pandemic threatens thousands of immunocompromised children


During this time of social distancing, seriously ill children can’t go outside and play and be distracted like healthy children can. People like our Starlight children are the ones that are being highlighted in the news. They have pre-existing conditions and are exponentially at risk as they are strongly immunocompromised.

Starlight 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! We have created an emergency program called Play From Home Packs.

Starlight needs to ship Play From Home Packs to thousands of seriously ill children and their families across the country. The package will contain board games, crafts and other interactive activities. Many of these will involve a national group activity where all children will be logging on to Facebook Live with special guests including our own Captain Starlight to join in the fun.

For $100 today, YOU can send a kit to a Starlight family stuck at home this month and bring smiles, laughter and joy directly into their living room. With 2,000 families in our program, we are relying on our supporters to help us continue to send Packs in these urgent times, so that no child is left out.

The need is urgent, the ask is simple. Your donation will be used immediately with all kits shipped as they are sponsored.

100% of all donations received for this program will be used to deliver these packs. We hope you, our donors, will stand tall alongside us as we continue to serve these children.

From our Starlight Canada family to yours, thank you for your ongoing support and dedication as we all navigate through the evolving circumstances of COVID-19 together.
