The Starlight team know that happiness mattes when facing the pain, fear and stress of serious illness and for over 30 years have worked in partnership with health professionals to bring the fun, joy and laughter to those that need it, to help sick kids be kids. Fun and play are essential to every childhood and when serious illness takes that happiness away, Starlight is still there.
Here's how Starlight's programs make a difference:
Sick kids are distracted from their illness, pain and treatment
Sick kids feel happier and more in control
Sick kids can better manage their pain
Sick kids feel less anxious about hospital and treatment
Sick kids have an increased sense of wellbeing
Starlight are serious about fun because they see the impact it creates on kids in hospitals and communities across the country every day. When we give to Starlight, we’re helping sick kids feel happier, more confident, and ready to face life's challenges.
The AMX Team have several events planned this year and for 2021 where we will be supporting this amazing charity and raising funds to help grant wishes, where a once-in-a lifetime dream gift can come true!
If you’d like to help the AMX Team raise funds to support the Starlight Children’s Foundation, you can make a donation at the counter in any store. Or, join in the Starlight fun and purchase a Christmas Bauble in any AMX Superstore, which doubles up as a gift tag, plus every donation gets a name sticker to add to our in store Starlight Christmas Tree! You can also click here to make a donation online.
Thanks again to all those that made a donation on our Troppo day earlier in the month, together we raised a staggering $11,203, which will go a long way in helping wishes come true.
