Texas 4-H Council Community Service Project 2009

The Texas 4-H State Council has partnered with the Starlight Children's Foundation as an on-going venture to provide an opportunity for Texas 4-H Members to write encouraging messages to children and their families who have been diagnosed with a major illness. These cards will be distributed throughout Texas by the Starlight Children's Foundation.

Logistics: Holiday Card Distribution
  • A one dollar ($1.00) donation is requested per card (more if desired by the contributor) to assist with the efforts of the Foundation.
  • Write a message on the cards provided (may be picked up from the County Extension Office)
  • Contributors will be able to place a star on the web site ( under the Texas 4-H Galaxy. The contributor is to keep one side of the card with the number to put their star on the web site. Additional attributes can be added to their star for an additional donation while on the website.
  • For all money collected, a money order will need to be purchased and mailed along with the cards to our designated District 10 State Council Member. That information will be released as people are ready to mail their cards and money orders. (Money orders made payable to: Starlight Children's Foundation.

This is round 1 of this project, more will be coming in the future.

The Holiday Card Distribution will need to be completed by November 28th.
