A small sampling of gratitude
“Be the Star You Are!® has provided wonderful children’s books that we include in our birthday gift bags.  Many of the children receiving them have never owned a book and this introduces them to the wonderful world of reading. The books are having a positive impact on increasing literacy and self-esteem. Be the Star You Are!® is truly making a difference in the lives of those less fortunate. “ Karen Kitchel, President, Cheerful Givers

“Thank you so much, Be the Star You Are!®, for supporting our population of homeless and runaway youth with your kind donations of books, tapes, and magazines! Your efforts are sincerely appreciated.”  Karen Lottman, Northern California Family Center Safe Place
