Help us reach our goal so that we can meet the increased demand for children with physical disabilities. In fiscal year 2012-13, we experienced a 250% increase in the number of equipment requests we received. Clearly, there are many children who need our help. Click here to meet Elijah, our Variety Spotlight Kid, who received a tiny wheelchair from Variety.
We are happy to announce that we have already raised over $55,000 towards our goal with the help of donors who attended our annual Lunch for the Kids and Happy Hour for the Kids.
Your gift, whatever size, makes a huge difference in assuring that the needs of children with physical disabilities will be met. Your donation will be an investment in the future of Variety and the kids that we serve.

Bike rides, beach days, trips to the park – these are all staples of childhood that children with disabilities want to experience. They want to be active and mobile like other children in their communities.
But the durable medical equipment necessary to give these kids the independence they desire is often too expensive for many families. And insurance isn’t always the answer – in many cases, devices like adaptive bikes and special needs strollers are denied, despite their immense physical and therapeutic benefits, because insurance doesn’t consider them to be necessary items.
This is where Variety-the Children’s Charity of Wisconsin steps in. Variety helps kids gain mobility, confidence, freedom, independence and the chance to join in the life of their community by providing funding for walkers, wheelchairs, specially-designed adaptive bikes, strollers, and other devices to families with the most need.
