Starlight Day Brightener Wishes™

“I haven’t seen my son smile and be a “normal” 6-year-old in such a long time. This is the first time in his journey where he and I just got to be together. You made his dream come true and I got to spend some time with my best friend!” – Jenny, Starlight mom of 7-year-old Blake, who lives with brain damage, epilepsy, and more

Starlight Day Brightener Wishes™ do exactly what you think they would – they brighten a sick kid’s day (or evening)! Sometimes all a child wishes for in a given moment is a break from the hospitals, treatments and therapies. Whether it’s cheering at a sports game, jamming along at a concert, learning at a museum or much more, a Day Brightener Wish helps Starlight families unwind for a few hours and have some fun! Easy to fit around hospital schedules, these exciting outings are the perfect pick-me-ups.

Shared equally and fairly between all Starlight families, Starlight Canada distributes tickets on a regular basis, or as we receive them. Children who are part of our Starlight Great Escapes® Wishes program are automatically invited to participate in the Starlight Day Brightener Wishes program.
