Target demographics: We serve disabled and impoverished children through age 12 throughout all of Northern California.

Direct beneficiaries per year: Variety places highly-specialized medical equipment, funds medical procedures and, sadly, burial services to an average of 30 very deserving children each year.

Geographic areas served: Northern California

Programs: - Children's Compassion Fund
- Kids On The Go Mobility Program
- Samantha Marie Fund
- Variety At Work

Mission:
Variety is dedicated to improving the lives of children by providing programs of last resort that help families access medical care and related services that are not covered by insurance companies, hospitals, government agencies or community based organizations. Our primary objective include helping at risk, disadvantaged, and disabled children in our local communities.
Results:
Already this year we have hosted childrens activity outings, granted funding to send critically ill children to camp, forged a new partership which expands on our Compassion Fund and served 4 very special children who had previously been on our waiting list with adaptive bikes and equipment. These highly-specialized bikes bring freedom, self-confidence and autonomy that is unlike anything the children have been able to experience and is a hallmark of our Mobility program. 2011 is off to a great start and we are counting on continuing to provide great service!

My nephew, Cameron, has CP and several other medical conditions that make mobility and regular exercise difficult. The Variety Club gave Cameron the ability to join his family in regular exercise activities by giving him a bike that he is specially designed for his physical challenges. Now Cameron... more »
