Bellbird’s Jessica Doust knows all too well the positive impact the Starlight Children’s Foundation can have on the lives of sick children and their families.
Both of her sons – Hudson, now three, and Noah, 18 months, spent time in hospital as babies.
Ms Doust says the foundation was a great help in making their experience more enjoyable.
“The Starlight Foundation were great – they brought toys to the ward to keep them occupied, and the clown doctors and Starlight rooms were fabulous,” she said.
Ms Doust is a Scentsy consultant, and was excited to hear the candle product company’s latest charitable cause product will support the Starlight foundation.
Scentsy will donate $11 from the sale of each ‘Sebastian the Superbuddy’ teddy bear to the foundation.
Ms Doust is one of about 50 Hunter-based Scentsy consultants who have joined forces for a Buddy Drive to support the foundation.
They are encouraging people to buy the bears so they can donate them back to children’s hospitals.
“We thought it would put a smile on their faces, because we know how hard it can be,” Ms Doust said.
“It’s a way to give back to them for everything they did for our kids.”
Many of the consultants also donated their commission from sales of the bears during March.
