Soul Origin to raise $30,000 for the Starlight Children's Foundation

It will give over 750 seriously ill children access to Starlight Express Room programs.

Between 15 September and 21 September, all Soul Origin stores will donate funds from every sale to Starlight.

Soul Origin has pledged to raise $30,000 nationwide in just one week, which will give over 750 seriously ill children and their families access to Starlight’s Captain Starlight and Starlight Express Room programs.

Captain Starlight works within Starlight Express Rooms, which provide a treatment free respite for sick kids and their families in all major children’s hospitals nationally.

Soul Origin’s CEO, Chris Mavris, said the Soul Origin family was dedicated to helping other families nationwide. “We have made a pledge to raise $30,000 in just one week! It’s a huge goal but one we know that all our stores, team members and customers will be very excited to support and achieve,” Mavris said.

“We love having the opportunity to raise much needed funds for such a worthwhile charity, like Starlight. We are encouraging all our customers to get behind such a great cause next week and help Starlight continue to improve the hospital experiences of sick children and their families. Soul Origin loves what Starlight does in lifting the spirits of sick kids and their families, through programs such as Captain Starlight and the Starlight Express Room. They share our philosophy of making a difference for families through positivity and good experiences,” he added.

“This fundraising campaign is one of many ways we’ve supported Starlight over the last year. We’re partnering with the NRL Footy Show’s ‘Big Change for Little Champions’ Telethon for the second year in a row, and we’re also honoured to support Starlight Day, fuelling volunteers with coffee and food,” Mavris said.
