For a child, going to hospital can be frightening and it is easy for them to get lost in their illness. It’s also difficult for parents and siblings who are anxious, exhausted and spending each day in a sterile hospital. This is why Starlight Children’s Foundation steps in to brighten the lives of seriously ill children and their families. With programs like its Starlight Express Rooms, Captain Starlight, livewire.org and wish granting experiences, Starlight helps seriously ill children to be kids again and interact with siblings in a fun environment. It also gives parents a break, letting them enjoy the relief of seeing their child with a smile on their face.
Louise Baxter, CEO of Starlight Children’s Foundation, said technology will play a crucial role in helping it to scale its mission and bring joy to the lives of more families. Against this backdrop, it’s partnered with Salesforce and developed a bold vision and roadmap to double its fundraising over the next three years.
“We want to be an organisation that’s smart, agile and mobile. Working with Salesforce has helped us achieve exactly that and connect with the community more deeply,” Baxter said.
