Pick of the Week: Meet Sparkles! The Gift That Gives Back
The Starlight Children’s Foundation Canada has partnered with Toys R US, to bring us Canada’s 10th anniversary limited collectible Starlight Bear: Sparkles. And it’s the best gift you can give a child to help another one in need.
Sparkles, this year’s collectible stuffed bear, was inspired by a five year-old girl named Ella and encompasses Ella’s love for all things glittered and gold. Before birth, Ella was diagnosed with Transposition of the Great Arteries and developed Pulmonary Hypertension at six months. She’s received a donor artery, had nine heart surgeries, and until this summer was connected to oxygen 24/7. Ella is not only courageous but she always has a smile on her face, which is why she insisted her bear MUST be smiling.
100% of the proceeds from the sale of Sparkles, the Starlight Bear, will be donated to Starlight to help brighten the lives of seriously ill children. Sparkles retails for $19.99 and can be purchased at any Toys”R” Us location across canada and on their website at toysrus.ca.
Be inspired and give the gift that gives back this holiday season, no matter what age you are. #SparklesBear #Holidaygifts #givingback @starlightcanada @toysruscanada
