Starlight bringing wishes to life.


Today, I wanted to mention the work of Starlight Children’s Foundation for seriously ill children across the country. My dear friend Tiffany {from Three Ring Circus 's} , daughter Ivy received a Starlight wish last year. Starlight also helps ease the 'trauma' during Ivy's frequent  hospitalisations.

Ivy is the face of the 2012 Starlight Christmas campaign please read Tiff's beautiful story with photos.

Sandy the Sea Turtle PILLOW PET, was designed by Chloe who was diagnosed with Herpes Encephalitis, commonly known as ‘cold sores on the brain at 20 months old.

Following a family trip to the Great Barrier Reef provided by Starlight Chloe was inspired to submit a drawing of a sea turtle. Funtastic used Chloe’s design to create this very special PILLOW in honour of Starlight.

It is that time of year when everyone is thinking of Christmas wishes and Pillow Pets , a very popular children's toy - will make an ideal travel pal, naptime buddy and all-round snuggly friend. It will also help Starlight fundraising.

Available now at Toys R Us $5 from every sale @ $19.95ea of the Sandy the Sea Turtle PILLOW PET will go directly to Starlight to help in their work .

Starlight Children’s Foundation CEO, Louise Baxter says, “The sad reality is that every
minute of every day a child is admitted to hospital in Australia, but with the help of
supporters like Funtastic, Starlight can continue to deliver our programs in all major paediatric hospitals across Australia.”
I'm hoping to donate one I was sent to our local Children's ward for a child with a serious illness.
