Starlight Children's Foundation - Global Office
September 26, 2013

I joined Starlight Children's Foundation through their program, Starbright World. Through Starbright World, I made an incredible network of friends, who could always relate to my everyday health issues and be there to support me. Even though I was only a member of Starbright World for a year or so, I gained so much confidence in learned that I was not alone in my everyday struggles. When I turned 21, and Starbright World asked me to be a volunteer, I felt so honored because I feel like I owe so much to the program for what they have done for me in the short time I was a member. As a volunteer, I love being able to give back to the organization that has literally changed my life, and helped form me into the woman I am today. Starlight and Starbright World give so much effort to caring personally for each child who reaches out to them, and I feel like that is what makes this foundation so special and amazing.

Ways to make it better...

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

Increase their events/fundraising efforts, as well as PR for these events/fundraising efforts. I would love to hear about what is going on before it is actually happening, and I would love to be more involved! Plus, I don't know if this is lack of PR, but I feel like Starlight relies mainly on the Starlight Gala held annually, when there are other fundraising opportunities.
