Markitforce delivers some Christmas happiness to Starlight Foundation

Markitforce recently presented some Christmas joy and spirit to The Starlight Children’s Foundation in the form of a $6,500 financial donation.

The donation was presented to Starlight’s Partnerships Executive Julia Glaser at Markitforce’s celebratory Christmas event and will help grant a seriously ill child their Starlight wish of a lifetime.

“Markitforce has had a long association with Starlight and we were delighted to deliver some Christmas happiness to a very special child and their family,” said Alan Higgins, CEO Markitforce.

“We have always been inspired by the passionate and amazing team at Starlight and so jumped at the opportunity to help brighten the life of a Starlight child and their family through the Starlight Wish Granting program.”

Starlight CEO Louise Baxter says, “Thanks to the wonderful support of Markitforce we are now able to grant a life-changing wish for a child at a time when they need it most.”

 “A Starlight Wish is quite literally a dream come true for a child battling a chronic or life-threatening illness and we know that these Starlight Wishes can be a crucial turning point in helping a child to manage the pain and stress of treatment.”

Delivering Happiness was the recent theme behind one of Markitforce’s quarterly client satisfaction indicators. 

Delivering Happiness was largely focused on exceeding the expectations of our clients. I am extremely proud of the way our entire business rose to this challenge and exceeded all client expectations,” said Higgins.  “I would like to thank our clients for their constant feedback and partnerships.”
