Join us in our Annual Campaign!

We are excited to announce the launch of our annual campaign.  Our goal is to raise $100,000 and we need your help!
Raised $55,586 towards the $100,000 target.

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.
