Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
My wife and I started volunteering with Starlight Starbright about 8 months ago. It has been a wonderful and rewarding experience. Dana runs a very flexible operation, so just about anyone and everyone can find time to help out at several events per year. This is a valuable opportunity to make a difference in kids lives who have struggled with serious illness. The events are fun, creative and exciting not for just the kids and their families but the volunteers as well. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking to add a fun and rewarding volunteer opportunity.

Starlight is a incredible organization to volunteer with. To see all of the children laughing, playing and hopefully forgetting about their illness is such a wonderful and fulfilling experience. I think it provides some much needed family time for everyone! I highly recommend for anyone wanting to give a little time to make a child smile!
To bring a smile to the face of an ill child is a huge reward and you'll get plenty while volunteering with Starlight. Smiles are everywhere at a Great Escape event. The entire family can forget their worries and relax and have a great time, and as a volunteer you are a big part of making that happen. It's such a great feeling and an even better cause. Highly recommended!
