#GivingTuesdayNow is a global day of giving and unity that will take place December 1st, 2020. You can stay home, Shine your light and help others. Starchild recently lost a 10 yr old boy at the Mango Tree School that we help support. He drowned trying to get fish from the River Nile because he was hungry. With schools closed in Uganda, most of these children simply do not eat. We hope we can all come together on giving Tue and show off your skills or lack off for fun and try something new. Film it on your phone, post it and spread the word on Giving Tue. Starchild are challenging our friends and friends of friends to give a masterclass, give a concert, show us how you paint, draw, recite a poem, a drama, dance, sing, cook, cocktail making, bread making, comedy sketch, basket weaving, show us your gardening skills, dog training skills, writing tips, reading from a book, magic tricks, drumming, waxing, reiki or any other skill or talent you have hidden away or something you want to try. Let us into your world on Tuesday! Tell us something we wouldn't necessarily know that you know, lead a meditation or prayer, anything you feel connected to. Do it alone or as a family. Then post it on social media, share it and mention you are doing it for Starchild. If people like it they can donate for you on this page and mention your name or not. Let's just have fun online for a good cause and spread the love by shining your light for others.

#GivingTuesdayNow is an opportunity for people around the world to stand together in unity, to use their individual power of generosity to remain connected and heal. At a time when we are all experiencing the pandemic, generosity is what brings people of all races, faiths, and political views together across the globe. Generosity gives everyone the power to make a positive change in the lives of others and in their own because giving feels good - no matter how small the act of kindness, it has the power to resonate good. It is a fundamental value anyone can act on.

Humble thanks from all at Starchild

Starchild was set up by Michaela Foster Marsh in memory of her adopted Ugandan brother Frankie Marsh. Starchild believes that every child deserves to be loved, cared for, fed and educated. In Uganda, sadly many have no one to provide basic needs. Starchild brings aid to the most vulnerable.
