MediaCom Staffers Raise $31K For for Charity Partner The Starlight Children’s Foundation.

Last Friday MediaCom Sydney closed its office to raise money on behalf of their recognised charity partner, Starlight Children’s Foundation. Starlight Day, an annual event held nationally, sees thousands of volunteers raise much needed funds to brighten the lives of seriously ill children through the organisation’s uniquely Australian hospital programs.

Formed as a children’s charity in 1988, Starlight Children’s Foundation supports the well-being and resilience of children and their families who are living in and out of hospital by continuously helping restore the fun and laughter illness takes away.

Participating in Starlight Day for the sixth year in a row, over 150 purple and yellow-clad #MediaComStars hit the streets to sell merchandise, collect donations and complete the inaugural photo challenge in an array of locations across Sydney’s CBD. MediaCom’s people are truly dedicated to raising vital funds for Starlight Children’s Foundation, which make a real difference to help brighten the lives of ill children, giving them the opportunity to laugh, play and be a child again.

Sara Durree, talent manager at MediaCom said, “The vibrant culture you can see and feel when you walk through the doors at MediaCom is created by our people who push the boundaries every day. We face multiple challenges throughout our working week, but we know there are others who face far bigger battles than we do on a daily basis. This is why we come together every May, as OneMediaCom to support Starlight Children’s Foundation. We are so grateful to have the opportunity to help bring some happiness back into the lives of those that need it most.”

Michelle Mowle, head of talent at MediaCom said, “I am so proud of our people as they have shown amazing support and dedication to Starlight Children’s Foundation. Acting as OneMediaCom, our teams are strongest when we work together to help sustain Starlight’s programs that help bring smiles and laughter to ill children and their families.

I would like to thank all our clients for their understanding and the incredible amount of support from media owners, we are extremely grateful for their generosity.”

Holly Roberts, state partnerships manager NSW at Starlight Children’s Foundation said, “This Starlight Day we needed the support of our generous partner MediaCom, more than ever before. As demand for our programs increases, we plan on opening more Starlight Express Rooms nationally, including a room at The Sydney Children’s Hospital at Randwick.

Without MediaCom’s involvement, and their dedicated team’s contribution, we could not have reached as many seriously ill children and their families in their greatest time of need. We’re thankful to have a such a dedicated and enthusiastic team working with us to brighten the lives of sick kids across Australia.”

MediaCom would like to thank Adshel, ARN, Bauer Media, Media Motive, MCN, NewsCorp, QMS Media, Val Morgan and Yahoo for their generous contributions to their fundraising efforts. The funds raised on Starlight Day will go directly to supporting Captain Starlight, The Starlight Express Rooms across Australia, granting wishes, and most importantly increasing the impact Starlight Children’s Foundation has on seriously ill children and their families.
