I have a little boy with the biggest heart.
It is a rare level of sensitivity, but one I embrace with everything I have. He sees the good in others and takes joy in knowing he can do something good for someone else.
I bet you know a child just like this – one who has joy in their own childhood and would love to pass that on to another sweet one.
I have just the thing for you….
What is this all about? It is about replacing the traditional, scratchy, uncomfortable hospital gowns that sick children need to wear with Starlight gowns which are soft and comfortable, and tie down the side instead of the back and are specially designed with love and transform kids in to princesses, astronauts, veterinarians, deep-sea divers and explorers.
They are now looking for new winning designs. I bet you have a young artist who could create something unique for these gowns….my small dude put is heart and art in to his submission….his love of the ocean (one that mirrors mine) features prominently.
So, grab your favorite little artist, their best and brightest crayons and encourage them to channel their love for others, their dreams and imagination and all kinds of heart in to a Starlight-Design-a-Gown submission.
You can also visit your local Michaels until the deadline on February 20th to create a Starlight Gown design right in the store. They’ll supply all the arts and crafts you need and Michaels will donate a $25 gown to a hospitalized child, up to a maximum of $250,000.
And don’t forget to share your artist’s work online using #MyStarlightGown.
I can’t wait to see what they create….and the joy and happiness these special gowns will place in their hearts of sick children around the country.
Additionally, if you would like to support the Starlight Foundation’s Design a Gown Program – you can donate $25 – which will supply a gown to a child in need.
Disclosure: I am thrilled to partner with the Joy in Childhood Foundation to share this contest with you and your little ones. As always, al thoughts and opinions are mine and mine alone.
