We are a FB group called Michael's Circle of Love. We are a group of Michael Jackson fans that want to continue his legacy of sending Love and Healing to the World, especially children. We were looking for an extension of our group for Charitable work, following Michael's example. We learned that Starlight Children's foundation was one of the many Charities he supported in his lifetime. We learned the purpose of Starlight was to give children and their families in hospitals some joy and happiness. Michael knew that this was essential to healing. In every city around the world where Michael had a concert, he made sure to include a visit to a hospital or orphanage to bring toys and purchace any equipment they might need. He would spend hours visiting the children just to make them happy. We love the fun stations that are provided for the children to play video games and watch movies or cartoons, some of Michael's favorite things.

I first became aware of this Org. in 2002 when my cousin aged 2 was diagnosed with Cancer. His hospital stays were long and frequent but Starlight made those visits fun with their Fun-Centers, clowns and overall cheer.

Over the years, I am proud to see the Org. grow, and see more fun-centers and trips planned. This organization was pivotal to my cousins happiness and to so many still suffering from illness.

This charity is an amazing Oginization for all man kind. This charity makes kids and family feel like people other than family and friends care about them. I am one of many people who 100% support this charity. The staff that runs this charity should be very proud of themselves for making kids who might be different then others feel special in every way.

I have given to the Starlight Foundation because my best friend has medically involved children and I have seen first hand the way Starlight's help has changed their lives. The kids get to have so many adventures thanks to Starlight's help. I know it also helps my friend to better deal with the difficulties she and her children face when she gets to see how happy they are when participating in a Starlight event. Thank you, Starlight!

I have been involved for over 8 years as both a fund raiser and volunteer. During that time I have been involved in the placement of "Fun Centers throughout south Florida. The children in these hospitals upon being introduced to these centers, smile ear to ear and immeadiately become emersed in the games on the center. I leave those hospitals knowing that the children I met and the hundreds that will follow have for the moment left their illness behind and just enjoyed being a kid, with worries gone for that time.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Fund raising activities and volunteering

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

None

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

A combination of dealing with sincere qualified individuals and the results...happy kids

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Top of the line!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Open up more ofiices throughout the country, serving thousands more.

Ways to make it better...

I have no complaints about the local staff or the organiztion.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Continued funding to insure the continuation of their many programs

One thing I'd also say is that...

My involvement has been a blessing, via knowing my time and effort results in helping a good many children each year
