Starlight Wish Lists

Body: 

The Starlight® Wish List program is an online giving marketplace that empowers donors to improve pediatric care by funding critical unmet needs in local communities. Hospitals, clinics, specialty camps and other non-profit healthcare facilities publish customized Wish Lists on Starlight.org so donors can simply point, click and ship those much-needed items directly to their facilities of choice.

“Starlight Wish Lists are a virtual philanthropic ecosystem connecting donors with hundreds of facilities to support the critical unmet needs of millions of kids and families directly at the point-of-care.”
- Jacquie Hart, Global CEO, Starlight Children’s Foundation

Registered partner facilities are able to request Starlight programs and other items that will improve the life and health of the kids and families they serve. Starlight also distributes large-scale product donations via the platform, helping facilities meet their evolving needs and maximizing limited budgets to best serve their patients.

“The Starlight Wish List program is so much more than just toys and games. Where you see a can of Play-Doh, I see a tool to help my pediatric patients understand how cancer cells form a tumor, and how we treat it to help them get better.”
-Tanya, Child Life Specialist, California Hospital Medical Center

Individual donors can search by geographic location, facility name or treatment specialty, making it easy to donate to a registered facility that holds special meaning for them. All Starlight Wish List donations are timely, transparent and tangible with 100% of each donation directly funding items specifically requested by and shipped to the facility. Donors receive a tax receipt for their entire contribution.

Corporations can make product donations to support registered facilities on a local, regional or national level.
