TEXT WISH TO 70111 TO DONATE £3 A MONTH
Sell your stars
More than 60,000* children in the UK have been diagnosed with a critical condition, changing their lives and the lives of their families forever. For them, the joy of childhood is brought to an abrupt end, with treatment plans, hospital visits and sleepless nights taking over.
The power of a wish revives a childhood stolen by critical illness. It brings light and joy to children and their loved ones and leaves a profound and lasting impact on all their lives.
But we can’t be that light for everyone. It takes an army of volunteers, fundraisers, community support and donations to help these children feel like children again.
So, we’re asking for your help...
Could you put your imagination and artistic flair to good use by creating some stars to sell this Christmas? How about getting together with friends, family, colleagues or club mates for a star-making party, with music and mince pies?
However you'd like to do it, we'd like you to design and make some stars to sell this festive season to raise money for wishes.
Your stars, your way
