One Bright Star’s mission is to be a resource for families who have lost a child to death and has created a unique star symbol to recognize and support them.
One Bright Star was founded in 1998 by four mothers who each experienced the tragedy of a passing child. The vision of the founders is that people will recognize the star symbol and reach out to those who have suffered such a loss with greater compassion, hugs, and support. As part of this effort, One Bright Star has created star jewelry to be worn by family members and the Children’s Memorial which features the star symbol.
One Bright Star received its current Federal Tax Exemption status in September 1999, and is a Minnesota based 501(c)(3) charitable organization.

"Please remember to share your One Bright Star proudly!
Your support and encouragement of others, remembering it is ok to talk about their child, and a hug with or without words means more than you can ever know" - A OBS Mother
