Ornaments to Support Starlight Children’s Foundation and Chronically Ill Children

by Leila on November 12, 2012

As you may (or not) know by now my daughter has life threatening food allergies, chronic illness and special needs. She is sponsored by the Starlight Children’s Foundation that helps chronically ill children in many ways. We are thankful to have been part of many amazing events like a Mommy and Me Makeover thanks to Forever21.

Starlight Children’s Foundation has given my daughter (and I) so much support and cherished memories that will last a lifetime. Every event is filled with love, fun and laughter. For those moments my daughter is treated like a rock star (because she is one) and is able to forget her health challenges.

Sometimes we know we want to help an organization like this but don’t know how. We may not have the time. We may not have the extra money to donate. Sometimes it just slips our minds.

I’ve been really sick the past few weeks but had to make it over to Michael’s to pick up supplies for school projects for the kids. While we were there I spotted the 3rd Annual Starlight Children’s Foundation ornaments. These made my day and my daughter was feeling proud to be a Starlight kid.

These ornaments are adorable and $1 for each sold will be donated to Starlight. My daughter, who has life threatening food allergies, picked out the little baker one. She always talks about opening up an allergy friendly bakery one day. She says she wants those who have food allergies can have a safe and delicious place to get their baked goods.

I just love her.

Some Friends and family will be getting these from us for Xmas (oops… spoiled the surprise).

My Daughter Asks For Your Support and Help

My daughter and I are asking that you pick up an ornament from Michaels to support children with chronic pain and illness. We would LOVE to see pictures of them on your tree or with you holding them in support.

We want to help Starlight in any way we can because they have been such an important part of my daughter’s life and helping her cope with the obstacles she deals with.

If you blog about this and link back to me I will give you free advertising on my site through December as a token of our gratitude. Link up below and share the love!

My daughter is also making thank you cards for those of you who want to help show support with pictures and blog posts. Not sure how we will work that out but we will!

Even if you can’t purchase an ornament the fact you are reading this and any shares, comments and RT’s you can spare are greatly appreciated.

Thank you and keep on ninjakicking just as my brave little girl does despite her obstacles!

Great idea for a great cause. I don’t decorate for the holidays, but maybe I could get some for friends.

@Suebob Thanks so much, woman! I’ve been picking up these and they are going in our gift bags to teachers, friends and family 🙂

@KTLaBlanc Thank you!!!!!!  Make sure you sign up for the linky thingy (I’m SO technical) and email me your 125 button to dontspeakwhinese@gmail.com and I’ll get you up for some advertising goodness through the end of the year. Your post was awesome to read… fostering love, peace and radness should be a daily effort even if it’s small acts that lead to great ones!

Your daughter is awesome! We were getting some new ornaments this year, so now we where. Peyton was a Make-A-Wish kid.

@AnissaMayhew Thanks Anissa!! I expect to see pictures of your kids (who I miss BTW!) and tutus 🙂 Make-A-Wish is an amazing organization as well…. these types of organizations seriously change a child’s life.
