Soul Origin reaches $100,000 milestone for Starlight! 

Soul Origin’s strong focus on return on integrity and making a difference has already seen it reach its target of raising $100,000 in 2018 to help Starlight Children’s Foundation (Starlight) brighten the lives of thousands of seriously ill children and their families. 

This week Soul Origin’s fundraising has reached $102,810 which will give over 2,600 sick children access to Starlight’s Hospital services.

 “At Soul Origin a focus on return on integrity drives everything we do and we are thrilled to have already reached our annual target of raising $100,000 for Starlight Children’s Foundation,” says Soul Origin CEO Chris Mavris.

“Starlight is such an important cause to support and we have proudly been doing so for years. Starlight is on a mission to support these sick children and their families and help them re discover the joy of childhood,” says Chris Mavris. 

“Our fundraising officially launched on Starlight Day in May with Soul Origin’s stores spreading the word across the nation, selling merchandise and accepting donations in store.”

“We are so very proud to have already raised enough funds to give over 2,600 seriously ill children and their families access these wonderful Starlight services. This would not have been possible without the support and generosity of our passionate franchise partners, staff and customers – we thank you all for helping us achieve this incredibly important goal that will make such a difference to so many young lives,” adds Chris Mavris.

Soul Origin is a passionate supporter of Starlight, donating $15,000 in 2016 as part of Channel Nine Footy Show’s “Big Change for Little Champions” fundraiser and over $70,000 in 2017. 

This year Starlight celebrates 30 years of bringing fun, joy and laughter to sick kids and their families and to help celebrate this exciting milestone, Soul Origin proudly became a Gold Partner. Soul Origin’s fundraising goal was to reach $100,000 by 31 December 2018, which will help support Starlight’s national hospital services such as their Starlight Express Rooms and Captain Starlight ward program. 
Starlight Children’s Foundation has thanked Soul Origin for its support. 

“Starlight relies solely on the community to deliver and evolve its hospital services and we’re so thankful for Soul Origin’s ongoing support. Having already met their massive $100,000 fundraising goal is a fantastic achievement. We congratulate and thank Soul Origin’s staff, franchise partners and customers for their continuous support in helping us brighten the lives of seriously ill children and their families,” says Matt Geraghty, Starlight’s National Partnerships Manager.
