Watch this video of our sweet Emma and her faithful sidewalk, Cowboy Ed, as they tell the story that says it all - this is why Bright Star matters!
"I learned I needed to dream bigger"
We want all children with disabilities to experience success that encourages them to take on new challenges with a willing frame of mind that will translate into life skills in the years to come.
Like Emma, they just need the opportunity that we believe you can make possible.
Your gift will allow us to expand our current limited reach to a broader span of children with special needs. We are asking for a monthly pledge of $250, $100, $50, or $25 to help us reach this goal.
Please don't wait to help, thinking someone else will meet the need;
we really need you to take the next step and be part of the magic!
There's much to see here. So, take your time, look around, and learn all there is to know about us. We hope you enjoy our site and take a moment to drop us a line.
And some of the exceptional photography is by photojournalist, Eva Russo, who we are proud to claim as one of our board members!
