Share a Star is a young charity that works to support severely unwell children and teenagers under the age of 21 suffering from a range of chronic or life threatening and terminal illnesses. not only do we send a positive message of hope but we like to make each youngster feel individual and we create a special holding star that is completely unique.
We also send special gifts and cards to help bring a much needed smile to these brave fighters, and treat them as are special Stars. We call people who we look up to ‘Stars’ from film stars to pop stars, so why not call those who are battling illnesses ‘Stars’ too?
It is really important to involve the whole family, especially the siblings, as often they get unintentionally left out from others charities and are in fact stars in their own right!
Share a Star is hoping to grow and be able to do more for our Stars.

The Making of the Star
Here is a short video showing some of the hard work that goes into making each holding Star. It is important to us that every star is made with the love, compassion and individuality that makes Share a Star special. Each Star is handmade and uses all the youngsters interests to make it extra special for them! We have made a variety of from stars based on Twilight, One Direction to The Only Way is Essex and from Shaun the sheep, Butterflies to Peppa Pig as well!
