Before I moved to Chicago, I didn’t know anything about Starlight Children’s Foundation. After interning with this organization for a semester, I know I will always be involved in Starlight Children’s Foundation. Working with this non profit organization in particular has allowed me to gain so much and see how Starlight touches kid’s lives. When I get a chance to go to the great escapes, the enthusiasm and energy the kids have could light up a room, because of what Starlight does. This past Saturday I got the chance to attend a cosmic bowling great escape. I painted children’s faces, helped them write thank you cards, and got to capture the moments on camera. Every child had a smile on their face. I was also thanked every five minutes for what I do. The mission of Starlight describes it all, they brighten children’s lives. Without Starlight many children who are suffering would not have the opportunity to escape the pain and fear of their illness. I am thankful for the chance to work with Starlight Children’s Foundation Midwest and help in brightening kid’s lives.
