Variety - The Children's Charity is dedicated to promoting and protecting the health and well-being of children around the world

Variety – The Children's Charity of the United States is an association of 21 chapters throughout the country that empower local kids who are disabled and disadvantaged to live, laugh and learn. With the help of dedicated volunteers and generous individual and corporate supporters, Variety - The Children's Charity is able to expand the horizons of deserving children through three core programs:

Variety - The Children's Charity1Variety aids children with physical challenges whose families cannot afford, nor obtain through insurance, necessary mobility equipment such as wheelchairs, walkers, strollers, specially-designed adaptive bikes, and other mobility devices.

US Variety - The Children's CharityVariety provides funding for the equipment that helps them not only exercise and grow stronger, but also helps them engage with family, friends and classmates to become confident, independent, active members of their communities!

2Variety helps children who are disadvantaged and want to experience the fullness of life. Variety takes them out into their communities for special excursions that are usually taken for granted - to the zoo, museum, skating rink, library, concerts, amusement parks, the circus, and fun-filled events like fishing, film festivals, special movie screenings and annual holiday party!

Variety - The Children's Charity3Variety supports other local initiatives to benefit the children of your community, such as children's hospitals, camps, boys & girls clubs, after school programs, literacy programs, educational scholarships and arts programs.
