Corbin Bleu Asks Fans to Join Him in Brightening the Lives of Seriously Ill Children
Date:7/30/2009

LOS ANGELES, July 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Starlight Children's Foundation is pleased to announce that Corbin Bleu, the organization's national spokesperson, has started a fundraising campaign to encourage his fans to get involved with Starlight and support its mission to help seriously ill children and their families cope with their pain, fear and isolation. He plans to rally his fans to raise enough money to provide Starlight programs to five families for one year, and to place a "Fun Center"(TM) (www.starlight.org/funcenter) and a "PC Pal"(TM) (www.starlight.org/pcpal) at a hospital on Starlight's waiting list.

Starlight's Fun Center is a mobile entertainment unit featuring a Nintendo Wii(TM), a Sharp AQUOS(TM) LCD TV and a DVD player. The Fun Center can roll right up to the side of a young patient's bed or anywhere in a hospital setting to help distract children from their pain and keep them company after visiting hours have ended. Starlight's PC Pal is a secure, durable laptop computer that combats loneliness and boredom by allowing kids to connect with loved ones, entertain themselves and keep up with school work.

"I have spent many an afternoon with Starlight families and have seen what the children and parents are going through," said Corbin. "I am blessed with good health, and so I do whatever I can to help these kids who aren't so lucky, to help them forget their worries for the time being and just have some fun. All of them should have access to Starlight's programs. Will you join me to help make that a reality?"

Having been involved with Starlight for several years and now serving as Starlight's national spokesperson, Corbin has devoted himself to brightening the lives of the seriously ill children any way he can.
