Local efforts to brighten lives

WARWICK Girl Guides and members of the Girls’ Brigade are supporting the Starlight Children’s Foundation by selling merchandise in the Rose City Shoppingworld Centre today.

The Starlight Children’s Foundation has been brightening the lives of seriously ill and hospitalised children and their families for more than 20 years.

More than 2000 families will be sent on a Starlight Escape in 2010, providing them with much-needed relief from the day-to-day stress and worry that can come with battling serious or chronic illness.

This year Starlight is aiming to grant more than 400 life-changing wishes to seriously ill children across Australia.

The pain, loneliness and isolation that sick children feel dominates their lives and they often miss out on normal experiences that healthy children take for granted.

Physical recovery is only part of the solution. Starlight delivers innovative programs designed to make children happy and lift their spirits when they need it most.

The goal of the Girl Guides and the Girls’ Brigade this Starlight Day is to help make sick kids’ smiles a little brighter.

Call in and visit their stand outside Bi-Lo from 9am today.
