You’re here! Now, do you #Dare2Share?

Teens are unique. Why should their hospital gowns be any different?

Last year, Starlight began offering Ward + Robes to the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario in partnership with Rethink Canada. Soon after launching, Canadian and International media took notice with over 10 million views of the campaign video and interviews from around the world including Japan, Brazil, Germany, Australia, United States and the United Kingdom. The Ward + Robes gowns, designed by Toronto fashion house Nuvango, are 100% Canadian made with fabric that exceeds hospital grade standards. Design features include pockets for monitors, four ties for full back coverage and access areas for IVs and ports.

Starlight aims to raise enough funds to expand Ward + Robes to all dedicated pediatric hospital beds in Canada. Each increment of $100 in donations will supply one gown for a seriously ill teen.

Starlight is challenging the public to #Dare2Share content with three of their friends and followers, along with making a donation to the Ward + Robes program.

It's simple and fast:

1. Click on the top right button to make your donation.  $100 will actually buy a gown for a child but any amount helps! 10 people giving just $10 each buys a gown!

2. Dare to share to THREE of your friends by sending them a message, "I just saw an amazing video.  Click HERE (with a link to the video) and I dare you to match my donation and help me buy a designer gown for a seriously ill child.  Then, challenge them to share it with THREE MORE people by sending them this message!

3. Share this on all your social media channels!  Let's see how many gowns we can give to children!

Let seriously ill teens feel like teens again. Donate today!

‘Tis the season! And you have all showed how generous you are! We have exceeded our goal of $10,000 and we couldn’t have done it without YOU! An extra special shout out to Mike Lee and the team at Leetwo Metal in Montreal for their FIVE THOUSAND DOLLAR donation!!!! Absolutely incredible!

But there’s still time left in the campaign! Now at $14,000, do you think we can make it to $20,000 by the end of 2017?!?

Today we are introducing Elina, who was diagnosed with Stage 3 Diffuse Large B-Cell Lymphoma (Cancer). In her video, she tells us all about how she loves the Ward+Robes because they let her express her style, even when her cancer may physically make her look different than she used to. They let her look like herself, and not just a sick patient!

You donations helps hospitalized teens, like Elina, look and feel like themselves while in hospital! Talk to your friends, your family, your colleagues and company – and help us reach our new goal of $20,000 for seriously ill teens across Canada!

Thank you so much for your support. We wish you and your family a happy holiday!

We are 4 weeks in and you have helped us raise almost enough for 75 Starlight Ward+Robes! Almost three quarters of the way to our goal of 100!!

This week, we are excited to introduce Kayla, who was healthy and vibrant all of her life until she was diagnosed with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome at the age of 16. Since then, she has been diagnosed with a rare digestive disorder that has resulted in five surgeries and 50+ procedures, disrupting her life catastrophically.

The Starlight Ward+Robes help teens like Kayla hold on to their individuality, even when they’re sick. “[I love the Ward+Robes because] I feel like me. I’m Kayla - not the sick girl.” Check out the video to hear more from Kayla!

Thank you so much for your support. Please #Dare2Share, and stay tuned to see who we will introduce next week!!

Well, it’s been two weeks of the Sick Can’t Stop My Sparkle campaign, and because of your generosity we’ve fundraised enough for almost 60 hospitalized teens across Canada to be able to express themselves with a Starlight Ward+Robe. We could not be more grateful for your support – and we hope you will continue to help us raise awareness and funds by sharing this campaign with your friends and family.

Teens are the most underserved population in hospitals, and unfortunately there’s more than 60 teens across Canada who want to be seen as more than just their illness while receiving treatment, undergoing countless surgeries, and getting poked and prodded for numerous tests. The need is tremendous and we can’t do it without amazing people like you!

This week, Dante tells us how his Ward+Robe helps him show his character. He was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia and has been in and out of the hospital for two years. You can learn more about his story in the video below and see how Sick Can’t Stop HIS Sparkle.

Thank you so much for your support and please #Dare2Share to show the empowerment that comes with the Starlight Ward+Robes program!!

In just one week, you have helped us fund more than 50 Starlight Ward+Robes! We cannot thank you enough!!

Over the next 4 weeks, we will be introducing a new Starlight teen who has been positively impacted by the Ward+Robes program so you can see exactly who will be benefiting from your support.

This week, we would like to introduce Daniela, who was diagnosed with Hydrocephalus and Spina Bifida at birth and had her first surgery at just 24 hours old. Since then, she has endured many hospital stays and never felt like herself in the dreary old hospital gowns. In this video, she tells us how the designer Ward+Robes let her express herself as more than just another patient.

Thank you so much for your support and stay tuned to see who we will introduce next week!!
