Bobbie’s Starfish Paperweight (Blue)


Roberta “Bobbie” Young (July 11, 1934-March 31, 2017) was a devoted volunteer at Voices for Children for twenty years. She helped in many ways around the office, but one of her favorite jobs was carefully packaging and sending VFC starfish collectibles around the world. We have created this special starfish to honor Bobbie—the blue is the same color as her beloved VW bug (a car that she bought new in 1968 and drove until she could no longer drive, in 2016.) Thank you, Bobbie, for all you did for our foster children!

The full-size glass paperweight is five inches in diameter and comes in a beautifully packaged gift box. Each paperweight includes your very own copy of Loren Eiseley's inspirational starfish story, perfect for wedding favors or for a unique corporate gift idea.
