Eagles Path works with numerous churches and outreaches to impact the children in the villages to have proper essentials for health.

The Stars Foundation’s Donors Support
Mayfield, Kentucky Victims of Tornadoes

On December 14. The Stars Foundation had a first-hand look at the devastation left behind by one of the most horrific tragedies caused by a natural disaster in America. The two-mile-wide tornado traveled 200 miles to reach Mayfield, Kentucky, at approximately 9:30 Pm on December 10, 2021. Damage to life caused by the vast and powerful tornado that ripped through Mayfield, Kentucky, and Middle Tennessee was both epic and profound. Our ministry partners in Mayfield were the hub of natural disaster relief as Samaritan’s Purse and two other nonprofits set up camp there as a central location for supplies and volunteers to gather.

Our team was able to impact the delivery of assistance in numerous ways. Supplies were abundant and overwhelming the area, so we were able to take the recommendation of the local pastors and aid coordinators and provide GIFT CARDS for over 60 families! The Gift Cards, as suggested by the aid workers, consisted of Walmart Gift cards. This was the recommendation so that any necessary item they needed could be purchased by the victims. We are forever grateful to one of our National Advisory Members, Jay Paul Deratany and his law firm, Deratany and Kosner, Chicago, Illinois, for coming to the aid of victims in Mayfield. We plan to continue to provide Gift Cards and ask that donors click on Mayfield, Kentucky Tornado Relief to donate in upcoming months.

A Benefit Concert is being planned! We will keep you posted!


White Feather Foundation- founded by Cynthia and Julian Lennon

White Feather Foundation Children Talking

The children of the Shiyala Community were walking for approximately two hours to their nearest school prior to Phase I build of Shiyala Community Primary School. They solved this issue and opened a school in 2017, which currently educates 430 children. This next build will increase capacity to serve 560 children. We at The Stars Foundation are seeking funding from our events and promotions to help send goods to help the children and community in the area. We need your help!

By working collaboratively with Shiyala Community Healthcare Post, Mothers of Africa will monitor and record the ongoing progression in terms of both education and health for each child that enters their school.

This project with Mothers of Africa and the White Feather Foundation is one of the selected grant recipients of the World Orphans Day Fund to support such projects benefiting orphans.
