Bloomex continues as a proud supporter of Starlight Children's Foundation
Starlight brightens the lives of seriously ill and hospital children and young people, by replacing pain, fear and stress with fun, joy and laughter, through services such as Captain Starlight and the Starlight Express Room.
Bloomex is offering a donation at checkout feature integrated with its retail storefront at Bloomex.com.au. Customers can opt to donate $2 with any order, and all funds collected will provide further assistance to Starlight.
In addition, the company is donating bouquets to help cheer mothers whose children are in hospital this Mother's Day, in a joint campaign with Starlight to help recognize the special challenges these families face. Bouquets will be presented in the Starlight Express Rooms at both Sydney Children's Hospital, Randwick and The Children's Hospital at Westmead.
Captain Starlight and Starlight Express Rooms exist in all every major children's hospital nationally, and offer a treatment-free respite for seriously ill and hospitalized children and young people to spend time together, play, interact and have fun.
"Every minute of every day a child is admitted to hospital in Australia, and Starlight is there to help them play, laugh and simply be kids again. Thanks to the generosity of our corporate partners and the local community, Starlight is able to continue its hospital services and Captain Starlight program nationally,"
"Bloomex is delighted to continue its support for Starlight," says Sue McDonald, Director of PR and Corporate Partnership at Bloomex. "Starlight does amazing work to brighten lives at a very difficult time, through its hospital programs. We want to thank our many customers for their help with this campaign."
