On Tuesday 5th May artists, musicians, performers will provide a wide programme of events throughout the day.

Michaela Foster Marsh has challenged her friends to give a masterclass, give a concert, show us how you paint, draw, recite a poem, a drama, dance, sing, cook, cocktail making, bread making, comedy sketch, basketweave, show us your gardening skills, dog training skills, writing tips, reading from a book, magic tricks, drumming, waxing, reiki or any other skill or talent you have hidden away or something you want to try. Let us into your world on Tuesday! Tell us something we wouldn’t necessarily know that you know, lead a meditation or prayer, anything you feel connected to. Do it alone or as a family. Then post it on social media, share it and mention you are doing it for Starchild. If people like it they can donate or not. Let’s just have fun online for a good cause and spread the love. We recently lost a boy at the Mango tree school who drowned trying to get fish from the River Nile because he was hungry. With schools closed in Uganda, most of these children simply do not eat. We hope we can all come together on giving Tue and show off your skills or lack off for fun and try something new. Film it on your phone, post it and spread the word on Giving Tue. and spread this message to people you know, let me know if you are in. Humble thanks.’

Starchild is a Charity dedicated to improving the lives of children in Uganda.

#GivingTuesdayNow is today and is a global day of giving and unity as an emergency response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19. Starchild recently lost a 10 yr old boy at the Mango Tree School that they help support. He drowned trying to get fish from the river because he was hungry. With schools closed in Uganda, most of these children simply do not eat.

Please donate even a small amount today if you can. Link here:

About Starchild

Aim for the Stars

Starchild is a registered charity set up in memory of the founders adopted brother, Frankie Marsh. Frankie’s parents were both from Uganda. After coming to the UK to study in the 60s, Frankie’s mother reluctantly made the decision to give him up for adoption. Frankie was adopted into Michaela’s family in Glasgow, Scotland at 13 months old, the same age as Michaela. They were raised like twins – one black, one white. Sadly Frankie died in a house fire at the age of 27 years.

Starchild believes that every child deserves to be loved, cared for, clothed, fed and educated.
