Starlight Children's Foundation Midwest
June 22, 2011

As a person who is involved in the planning and execution of programming, I've been given the opportunity to see first hand what an incredible difference this organization makes in the lives of the children and families involved. The stories I hear from these families everyday are truly inspirational and I feel so grateful to be able to play a tiny part in relieving the stress and isolation so many families with sick children face in their everyday lives.

The Great!

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

This past weekend we held a Father's Day event at Lincoln Park Zoo where one family drove four hours with five kids, one being wheelchair bound, to attend the event and be with their fellow Starlight families. If that doesn't speak to the incredible work this organization does and the relationship it forms with its' families, I don't know what does.

Ways to make it better...

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

Find a way to spread the word to more families who need this type of programming so every seriously ill or injured child and their family across the midwest could be a part of this incredible program.
