Featured Charity
Starlight Starbright Children's Foundation

Our featured charity for March 2006 is Starlight Starbright Children's Foundation. Starlight Starbright is a non-profit organization dedicated to brightening the lives of seriously ill children and their families. Starlight Starbright touches the lives of more than 180,000 children each month with programs to empower children and families to take charge of their illness, play a more active role in their treatment, and better cope with the challenges that accompany prolonged illness.

Alex's Coupons donated two thousand dollars to Starlight Starbright Children’s Foundation at the 2nd Annual "Oscar Night America" dinner held at the Triple Door in Seattle Washington on March 5, 2006. What a great night filled with wonderful and generous people! In total over $67,000 was raised for the great work that Starlight Starbright does! What a night!

Starlight Starbright Children's Foundation is one of our favorite organizations as they see how important it is for kids with serious illnesses and their families to be able to relax, laugh and enjoy special experiences together. From diagnosis on, they are there for the kids and their families, both in and out of the hospital.

Starlight Starbright has built playrooms and teen lounges, and donated portable gaming stations and computers to hospitals across the country. They have even written software programs so that kids can play games that relate to their particular illness. While out of the hospital, families are able to participate in special events such as zoo outings, harbor cruises, special parties, musicals, concerts and more. When families are going through treatment, things like this more often than not, go by the wayside. If not for financial reasons, then for a lack of time to plan something like getting theater tickets. When your child is going through treatment so much is going on and you never know when you will be in or out of the hospital.

So when you get an email saying that tickets are available in two days for a show that's been sold out for months and you happen to be out of the hospital. Woo-hoo, Family Fun Night! A chance for you child to put out of their mind for a few hours all the stress and fear that surrounds them on a daily basis. A chance for you to see your child that works so hard to be brave during treatment and faces so much pain on a daily basis, laugh, joke around, watch with baited breath and then at the top of her little four and a half year old lungs scream "Go Beast!" Then when you think she's done, hear her yell even louder and more exuberantly, "Yea Beast!" This was definitely one of our favorite Starlight memories!

Please take a moment to visit the Starlight Starbright website and make a donation. Remember we can make a huge difference with everyone giving just $1.00/day!
