HELLO, WE’RE VARIETY— THE CHILDREN’S CHARITY We’re making a better future for our community by connecting people who care to programs that enable children to reach their potential. Since 1937, we’ve helped create opportunities for children to fully share in the experiences of life, no matter life’s challenges. Through the generosity of our community, we’re able to provide funding to nonprofit children’s organizations for building expansions and renovations, equipment, programming needs and more. One of our core programs is the Compassion Fund—a fund that provides much needed financial assistance to families when their child is hospitalized. We also have mobility-focused programs that offer Variety Vans for organizations, bikes, helmets and locks to children who have never enjoyed their own bike, and specialized bikes and equipment for children with special needs. In addition to giving children freedom to explore with bikes, we believe that all children should have the opportunity to experience a playground. That’s why we’re working with Iowa communities to provide inclusive playgrounds for children with and without special needs. Let’s all play! Helping children experience full lives—daily Variety – the Children’s Charity is dedicated to improving the lives of children who are at-risk, underprivileged, critically ill or live with special needs.
