Starlight Children's Foundation Midwest
July 17, 2012

Starlight Children's Foundation is a wonderful non-profit organization that brings joy, and happiness to very sick children and their families. I started interning at Starlight Midwest in June 2012, but had experienced Starlight's impact prior to arriving here. A seriously ill friend of mine got to use a fun centre while being in the hospital. It's so nice to be able to have a distraction, and just spend time with family and friends to forget about the hospital atmosphere. Starlight also does "Great Escapes" which allow for kids and families to experience normalcy and have fun being an average kid. These events are free for the starlight child and their family to attend, which allows for a stress free day. I'm very proud and grateful to say I was able to work with such an amazing foundation, helpful team, generous donors, and all around caring, good-hearted people that do such great things for sick kids and their families. I will continue to be heavily involved with this foundation and have had a truly rewarding experience.

The Great!

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

the reactions and comments of families, kids, volunteers, coworkers. This is a very rewarding foundation to be a part of.

Ways to make it better...

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

help to get the word out, make Starlight Midwest better known as we aren't reaching as many families due to the fact that many sick kids and their families are unaware we exist. We want to be able to help as many sick children and their families as possible!
