Celebrities show their support for Starlight Children’s Foundation

Princess Lydia gets her wish granted

We would like to say Congratulations to Starlight who have added an additional 333 shoppers this month so far. This is an amazing result for the charity who are now well on their way to achieving 750 total shoppers.

Their passionate shoppers have made 4,000 shopping transactions, spending over £250,000. Based on our current shopper value per month they could generate an annual recurring revenue of over  £18,000 for Starlight


Celebrities have been showing their support on Twitter over the past couple of weeks, including Richard BransonRob Brydon, Paris Hilton and Nick Frost, who have all tweeted the link for their followers to sign up and start shopping with Give as you Live.

One specific child who got his wish granted this Christmas was seven year old Josua Trew, who is suffering from optic glioma (which is a form of brain tumor). He has had to spend the last two christmases in hospital undergoing surgery and having treatment. To make up for the challenges he has had to face Starlight arranged for Joshua and his family to go to Lapland and wrap presents with Santa.

By supporting Starlight through Give as you Live you can help more children like Lydia (top left) and Joshua (above) get their wishes granted. Lydia’s dream was to meet a real-life prince, so through Starlight she met the one and only Prince William. Read all about it and see more pics here.
