Starlight Foundation Internship Profile
The Starlight Foundation began in 1983 with a wish from a dying boy who befriended actress Emma Samms. Samms teamed up with film executive Peter Samuelson to transform that wish into an “international nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for seriously ill children and their families.” Today, the Starlight Foundation works with more than 1,000 hospitals to help seriously ill children ages four to 18 through “distractive entertainment.” The foundation grants about 275,000 wishes annually such as meeting Paul McCartney, visiting Disney World, viewing a taping of Sesame Street and having dinner with Cindy Crawford.
