Toys“R”Us®Canada, in partnership with Starlight Children’s Foundation™ Canada, has launched their 19th annual Star campaign in Toys“R”Us and Babies“R”Us stores across the nation. The program, which runs until December 31st, allows customers to purchase stars in-store or online for a minimum donation of one dollar, with all proceeds going directly to Starlight Canada.

Funds raised at Toys“R”Us locations throughout Canada return to the communities where they were raised in the form of beneficial Starlight Programs for hospitals and seriously ill children!

Over the holiday season, Toys“R”Us Canada employees will act as Starlight Canada ambassadors, raising awareness in-store, online and through many ‘fun’-raising events. Customers are able to participate in the Star campaign by visiting their local store or by visiting
