They wanted to pay it forward and enable more children and families to have the support of Starlight when facing their most challenging times. They truly work in partnership to help us bring the joy and fun of childhood to sick kids when they need it most. Thank you to all at Cashrewards for your commitment to happiness.

Our partnership with Starlight is a centerpiece that our team really gets behind and reaching this donation milestone is something we’re especially proud of.
