We love the blank pillow cases as the children can decorate or leave messages for their loved one that is hospitalized. Or we use them so when visitors come they sign in so the pt knows who is sending well wishes. We have also used them for the parents to write a note to their child so that while they are apart they are never really very far to lay on the love note sent from their parent.

Starlight Midwest is an amazing organization. Through them our family has been able to participate in so many wonderful events. Having a special needs child often makes it difficult to participate in things such as going to the zoo or attending a ball game. Starlight Midwest takes all of the hassle away and let's us enjoy just like any other family!

As a non profit hospital we rely on donations of toys, games and books to allow our children to have less boredoom and stress while in the hospital. The items that Starlight provides allow us to help our kids heal faster and use our funds for the medical side of the hospital. Starlight has excellent quality and timeliness and they are very good at communication regarding what is available and how to receive it. They are a 1st class organization and we are blessed to be a partner with them.

Starlight is been exceptional providing to my entire family with great ways to enjoy events that takes our mind away from hospital, pain, medical bills, etc. It's nice to have the opportunity for my 6 kids to enjoy an event were they can see their little sister laugh and having fun. Once in while is nice to have the opportunity to take our kids to enjoy an activity that it's free, don't need to worry about the financial stress. Starlight is been providing my entire family with an amazing time in every single event.

Starlight Chrildren's foundation Midwest is a organization that works beyond imagination to help kids with serious illness/disabilities and their families to have enjoyable/worry free time with the numerous events/programs they offer. My family had a great time in a baseball game. It's the best gift to be able to see a big smile in our child's face that spend lots of her time in a hospital for surgeries. It's a great feeling to be able to have recreational time with out worry the financial part. Starlight is a great organization that help us to be able to have worry free family time. Thanks!

Have more events in Indiana. It's hard to be able to go all the way to Chicago.

I've had the pleasure of working with Starlight as a volunteer and YES board member for the past 5 years. I have witnessed first hand the positive changes that Starlight has made on the children and their families. I know Starlight will continue to enhance the lives of terminally ill children and my hope is that more families take advantage of their services.

I have now seen Starlight from the inside out, and have been very impressed with the work they do. They are thoughtful in how they use donor money, and never fail to bring smiles to families' faces. Everyone I have ever encouraged to work with Starlight comes away genuinely impressed and excited to support the organization in any way they can. I am so proud to be involved with Starlight.

I have had the pleasure of working with the Starlight organization for about 2 years now, and I am continuously blown away by the work they do and the impact they have not only on the children, but the families of the children as well.

It's tragic what these kids have to go through, and the work Starlight does to bring some brightness and positive outlook into the lives of the people involved is amazing. It goes much deeper than treatment and hospital stays - it helps the kids and parents cope with what can seem to be an impossible situation at times. The stories I've heard and kids I've had the privilege of interacting with first-hand are a great testament to the work Starlight does.

Increase their reach! The biggest challenge is always getting the word out, so continuing to share their story is vital to reaching more children and their families.
