Many have asked if the Donate Direct Program is still in effect. Yes, you can fill out the two minute form on-line and for every TV or computer screen you claim, Be the Star You Are!® will get a donation and you will get a tax receipt once the program ends, which could be in 2018. We are notified of those who participate, so please support this very easy program that costs you NOTHING but two minutes of your time and will get you a great tax write off.

PLEASE do it today. Thanks from Be

the Star You Are!®


Spring is by far my favorite season as the feelings of rejuvenation, revitalization, and rebirth fill our senses. It's invigorating to be able to be outside in a healthy dose of nature therapy. Here in California El Nino has bestowed the gift of rain resulting in lush, green hillsides and gardens filled with blossoms. Cultivate a wildflower meadow then bring the outdoors inside with bouquets. Feel the flower power with the fling of spring.

Thanks to you, once again, Be the Star You Are!® has been honored as a TOP NON PROFIT, an award bestowed upon the charity for each consecutive year since the program was begun. Less than 1% of non profits nationwide earn this stamp of distinction. We are humbled and proud. Read the reviews and DONATE today
