Make a Difference


One Bright Star exists thanks to the generosity of many wonderful people, businesses and organizations that support it through their private contributions. Without this generosity, One Bright Star could not be here to fulfill its mission.

Your financial support allows us to: maintain our children’s memorial site, offer matching grants to families for memorial plaques and star jewelry, offer grief resources such as our Star Journal free of charge, update and maintain our website and social media outlets, sponsor our monthly Life After Loss radio program, and much more!
