To ensure every sick child receives joy and happiness from Starlight we do not offer individual gift allocation to sick kids that are part of Starlights programs. There are so many sick kids and Starlight works to ensure that your donation reaches those children that need it most.
If you personally know a sick child in hospital you can order a gift for a sick child to be delivered to your address and deliver it personally to brighten their day.
