‘OUR STARS FOR LIFE' DAY FRIDAY NOVEMBER 13th 2009 MAKE YOUR STAR HAVE YOU LOST A LOVE ONE TO CANCER Students of all ages all over Ireland are being asked to take part in a unique fundraising event this November in aid of the country's cancer care units. Friday November 13th has been designated national ‘Our Stars for Life' day – it's the day when children, teenagers and adults will make a star in memory of someone they loved who died of cancer. No two stars will be the same – as no two star makers are the same, and neither are the loved ones they have lost... so each star will have its own special story to tell. A donation of €1 is to accompany each star on its journey to Kerry, where all the stars will be put on display in the beautiful fragrant floral surroundings of Ballyseedy Home & Garden Centre in Tralee from the 13th of December during the Christmas period. The funds raised by schools or other organisations in each province will go back to the cancer care units in those provinces. The money will be used to provide some kind of comfort for families suffering the pain of watching somebody they love slip away. After the event all STARS will be sculptured into a 4 point STAR representing our 4 provinces and placed in the garden centre forever as a symbol to OUR STARS FOR LIFE. ‘The Stars for Life' project grew out of the pain and loss when my beloved sister Joan lost her life to cervical cancer 15 years ago. Joan was like a mother to me . I was were reared in an orphanage , Joan been the eldest. I made a PROMISE to Joan before she died , one day I would do something special in her memory. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO BE A PART OF THIS UNIQUE EVENT PLEASE SEND YOUR STAR TO THE GARDEN CENTRE IN TRALEE WHERE IT WILL BE DISPLAYED.The money raised will stay IN YOUR COUNTRY ALL I AM ASKING FOR IS YOUR STAR. THIS IS MY PROMISE TO JOAN. A STAR SO ARE YOURS !!! THANK YOU
