Since 1966, Variety - the Children’s Charity has been making a difference in the lives of children with special needs across the province. With the average individual grant being $2500, Variety is urgently seeking more funding in their five core areas: lifesaving medical supplies, mobility equipment, specialized therapies, mental wellness counselling and educational support.

Over the past two years, Variety BC has seen requests for support from families double but have been unable to keep up with the demand. “This is the first time in Variety’s history that we have encountered this situation,” said Cally Wesson, CEO, Variety BC. “Because we’re a last resort charity if we’re not able to help families, I really don’t know who will.”
