#SmileForStarlight May 05th 2015

I have supported the wonderful Starlight Children’s Foundation for a few years now both personally and also through French Sole.

Starlight Children’s Foundation is the UK’s leading wish granting charity for children and young people with serious illnesses and they provide much needed support to the children and their families. Starlight doesn’t receive any government or National Lottery funding so I’m thrilled I’m able to help such an incredible charity in some way.

Friday 1st May was the first National Starlight Day and the launch of the #SmileForStarlight campaign! We’ve been taking part in all French Sole stores and offices, taking our selfies and texting in to donate.

Post your most smiley selfie on Instagram or Twitter tagging #SmileForStarlight and tag friends who make you smile to keep the campaign going! Text “WISH35 £3” to 70070 to donate £3 and help make a seriously ill child smile again.

We released the original Sparkling Star ballet flat in 2012 and have raised a donation of over £14,000 from sales to date, which I hope has gone on to bring a moment of happiness to children and families who really need it.

I’ve recently designed a new midnight blue velvet Starry Slipper, of which 20% of profits will be donated directly to Starlight to help with their remarkable work.

The new Starry Starlight Slippers are available here: http://www.frenchsole.com/shop/event/2
