Caring for a critically ill child is difficult; mentally, emotionally and financially. The Compassion Fund allows front line social workers to identify needs and distribute funds immediately, providing much-needed relief for families. 

Variety partners with Iowa hospitals to help critically ill children and their families by providing comfort, care and fulfilling immediate needs such as:

  • A gas card for frequent travel to appointments
  • Meals for a parent who spends weeks at the hospital
  • Payment of immediate bills such as phone, heat or electricity
  • A birthday cake for a child who will spend their special day in a hospital bed
  • Care for siblings when parents need to stay with their ill child
