Today on CauseTalk Radio, Megan and Joe talk to Jacqueline Hart-Ibrahim, Global CEO of Starlight Children’s Foundation.
Founded in 1982, Starlight Children’s Foundation has been a leading global charity that partners with experts to improve the life and health of kids and families around the world.
With the help of movie maker Steven Spielberg, Starlight was one of the first organizations to launch its own private social network in the late 1990’s.
Starlight divides its work into two areas: Starbright World, a social network for teens with chronic and life-threatening medical conditions, and the Starlight Wish List platform.
The Starlight Wish List is an online portal that connects donors with hundreds of facilities to support the unmet needs of millions of kids and families directly at the point-of-care.
The wish list streamlines an organization’s in-kind needs to one list and prevents well meaning but unnecessary in-kind donations.
To date, the wish list has fulfilled over $2.5 million in requests. Starlight built it and they came! The best part? Starlight collaborates with other hospital-focused nonprofits to share this valuable resource.
