Review for Starlight Children's Foundation Midwest, Chicago, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have had the honor to be an intern with Starlight Children's Foundation Midwest over the last month, and am continuing throughout the summer. This organization is very special in a variety of ways. The work place is extremely efficient, supportive, encouraging and fun. There is a sense of passion and commitment within every member of the organization, and it is empowering to work with an organization where the different members are absolutely on the same page with one another. While there is a lot of work that goes on in the office, I leave each day feeling like I am giving back to the community, in particular to the children and families that we serve. While attending the various events I have had the pleasure to help plan and execute, I leave feeling extremely happy and proud because of the differences we make in the lives of these families. On top of that, it is great to hear such positive feedback from our families and kids - like Starlight helps them to just feel like the kids they are and forget about being sick! Overall, I believe Starlight to be an absolutely unique and outstanding NonProfit organization that is truly irreplacable - it is remarkable to talk to families pre-Starlight and post-Starlight and see the difference in morale and attitude.

Role:  Volunteer & I help to plan and execute a variety of Great Escapes events, as well as deliver "Parties-in-a-Box" to children's hospitals, and distribute generous donations of sports tickets to the children and families. .
