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. While certain social distancing restrictions are now slowly being lightened across Canada, many Starlight children are still vulnerable and isolating – with no end in sight.

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

Designed to bring happiness home to seriously ill children, our Play From Home Program includes shipping packs with board games, crafts and other interactive activities, national virtual shows to help families connect and cope together, and so much more.

For $100 today, YOU can help 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 in these urgent times, so that no child is left out.

The need is urgent, the ask is simple. 100% of all donations received for this program will be used to bring happiness home to vulnerable children. 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.
