Supporting Bereaved Families

On the 19th December 2012, 6 days before his 6th birthday, Jack Kennedy suddenly fell asleep in his mummy's arms and became the brightest star in the sky. Brightest Star is the charity founded in his memory, to provide a support to other broken hearted mummies and daddies.

Please help us make Jack's legacy a lasting one by helping us to raise awareness and funds to help other people save children's lives and to support families who also have children shining bright in the sky.
