Pledge your birthday and help seriously ill children.


Millions of birthdays are celebrated each day – every single one with the power to make a real difference.

If you’re not sure what you want for your birthday this year, why not ask for help changing the lives of seriously ill children and their families?

Celebrate the next year of your life knowing that you’ve given back to kids whose next birthday isn’t guaranteed. Whether you’re throwing a birthday party or sharing your pledge online for the world with GoFundMe, ECHOage, a Facebook Fundraiser or more, ask your friends and family for donations to Starlight Canada in lieu of presents. 100% of the money you raise will go directly towards bringing joy, laughter, relief and a whole lot of smiles to children who need it most – from hospital to home.

Looking for where to set your fundraising goal? See below for what your fundraiser could accomplish!

$100 – Empower a teen struggling with a serious illness in-hospital with a unique WARD+ROBES® hospital gown.

$250 – Give a Starlight family a break from all the hospitals, treatments and therapies with Starlight Day Brightener Wishes.

$1,000 – Provide a hospital with 20 Starlight Comfort Kits to offer comfort, distraction and entertainment for the whole family and bring a little bit of softness to a stressful situation.

$3,500 – Give a seriously ill child their Once In A Lifetime Wish to be their brightest star in an otherwise dark sky.

$4,000 – Send 30 Kids on a Great Escapes® Wish so that kids of all ages, illness and abilities aren’t left out of the adventures.

No matter the size of your fundraiser, remember that every bit counts. Make your next birthday one you – and Starlight families – will never forget.

If you have any questions on how to use your birthday to give back to Starlight kids and families, contact Trevor Dicaire at or 1-800-880-1004 ext. 2241.
