Versatile Mobile Systems Helps Bring Smiles to over 700 children’s hospitals in the United States
Every 30 seconds, a child is diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition. These children and their families oftentimes are left feeling scared and alone while they face serious, costly medical treatments.
At Barcoding, Inc. we understand the importance of putting our community first and helping those who need it the most. We are proud of Versatile Mobile Systems, a Barcoding company, for gifting $7,000 to the Starlight Children’s Foundation through the 2017 Michaels Partner Summit and Charity Golf Tournament. With this donation, the Starlight Children’s Foundation can help create moments of joy and comfort for seriously ill children and their families through various programs at more than 700 children’s hospitals and healthcare facilities in the United States.
All donations given to the Starlight Children’s Foundation go directly to the following programs:
Starlight Brave Gowns
Starlight Brave Gowns make kids feel like superstars by replacing unattractive, uncomfortable and embarrassing hospital garments with high-quality, comfortable and brightly colored gowns. The gowns transform children into astronauts, princesses, cowboys and other characters so they can have fun and enjoy being kids.
Starlight VR is a groundbreaking program that will entertain, educate and inspire the imaginations of hospitalized kids across the U.S .through one-of-a-kind, immersive experiences that will transport children from the hospital to anyplace in the world – or beyond – through the magic of virtual reality.
Starlight Fun Centers
For more than 25 years, Starlight Fun Center mobile entertainment units have provided entertainment, distraction and a sense of normalcy for hospitalized kids. Starlight Fun Centers offer online access to family-friendly video games, movies and other programs through mobile entertainment units that can go anywhere in the hospital. Moving from ERs to waiting rooms to a child’s bedside, they are often a source of smiles, laughter and much-needed normalcy for kids and families facing difficult medical challenges.
Since 1990, Starlight has been transforming hospital areas into colorful, entertaining oases that can be enjoyed by young patients and their families. These playrooms, teen lounges and playgrounds offer a variety of diversions, including video games, computers, toys, crafts, music, and best of all, the company of other children.
Starlight Special Deliveries
Each year, through Starlight Special Deliveries, millions of dollars’ worth of donated products are delivered directly to 750+ hospital and health facility partners, free of charge. These donations bring toys, teddy bears, books and crafting materials straight to the children who need them the most.
Starlight Star Visits
Starlight Star Visits offer kids and families a break from the challenges of being a sick kid and an opportunity to meet some of their favorite actors, entertainers, athletes and characters.
