Variety – the Children’s Charity raised a record-breaking $141,304 during its two-day radiothon, Two Days of Compassion on 92.5 Nash Icon. Funds were raised December 11 and 12 to fill Variety’s Compassion Fund for the year.
Families often face financial difficulties when caring for a critically ill child. That is where the Compassion Fund steps in. Variety’s Compassion Fund partners with Mercy Des Moines and Blank Children’s Hospital, and allows social workers to identify needs and distribute funds directly to families. Funds are often used for:
- A gas card for parents to travel to and from the hospital
- Meals for a parent who spends weeks at the hospital
- Payment of immediate bills such as phone, heat or electricity
- Care for siblings when parents need to stay with their ill child
