More than 33,000 seriously ill children and their families need your help.

You can help deliver joy, fun and laughter to thousands of sick children by volunteering for Starlight Day.

Starlight CEO Louise Baxter said volunteers were vital to the success of the fundraising day.

“Our Starlight Day volunteers bring Starlight Day to life and in turn, they help Starlight deliver fun, joy and laughter to thousands of sick kids and their families across Australia,” she said.

Purple and yellow-clad volunteers are required to hit the streets May 5 to sell Starlight merchandise and collect donations.

Individuals, schools, universities and community groups are also invited to fundraise anytime during May.

Just $39 helps Starlight power happiness in one child, providing them with access to Starlight’s hospital programs.
