Starlight announced that Rupert Grint agreed to be an ambassador for the charitable organization located in the United Kingdom. Starlight’s mission is to bring light to the lives of children who have serious and terminal illnesses by granting wishes and arranging fun and entertaining activities to distract them from the pain, fear, and isolation of their condition.
Grint was quoted to have said that he is delighted to become a Starlight Ambassador after witnessing the effect a Starlight Wish can have on a seriously ill child and his family when Grint agreed to meet nine-year old Callum Wilson.
Neil Swan, Chief Executive of Starlight Children’s Foundation, added his own comment by saying that the organization was “thrilled” to welcome Grint as one of their ambassadors due to his experience with the chartiy’s work, his popularity with children and their families, and his “great sense of fun and charm”.
