12 kids of starlight

The holidays are a particularly hard time for sick children as they face uncertainty at what is normally a joyful time of year. That is why Starlight Children’s Foundation is launching a very special campaign. Over 100 hospitals they serve across the country have come to them asking for toys to ensure all children in their care can experience the same happiness over the holidays in-hospital as they would at home.

Samfiru Tumarkin LLP is proud to be a sponsor of the Starlight Children’s Foundation’s 12 Kids of Starlight campaign. The goal is to raise funds to provide toys to countless sick children at hospitals across the country this holiday season – children like Alisha. Please give generously! Our firm will match donations to Alisha, up to $2,500.


When Alisha was born, she went without oxygen and a heartbeat for a full 26 minutes. This caused damage to multiple organs, causing Alisha to spend the first seven and a half months of her life in hospital. After starting kidney dialysis at five days old, she received a kidney transplant at three and a half years, and in total has so far had 33 anesthesia’s. She is still g-tube fed at nights, has end-stage renal disease and developmental delays. As a result of her numerous medical complications, Alisha has spent 4 birthdays and 4 Christmases in hospital.

Children like Alisha deserve to smile this holiday season when they’ve had so many other chances taken away from them already.

12 Starlight children are teaming up to raise $2,500 each so that Starlight can meet the needs of hospitals across the country this year. That’s not all though! For each person who donates, you will be entered into a Prize Pool totaling over $20,000 with Economy Class return Air Canada tickets to any scheduled North American destination, including Hawaii, Mexico and the Caribbean.
