I am a long time supporter of Variety Childrens Charity and a past president. I have been to the homes of the children we have helped and met with their families. The gratitude they express for making the lives of their children a little better is worth all the effort we put in, in raising funds to be able to help them. When the mom's give you a big hug, it's hard not to shed a tear or two. I will always do whatever I can to help these families. When there is no one else to turn to, Variety will find a way to help improve the life of a family and a child in need. Patrick Downs, Board Member

Variety is committed to providing services to children with disabilities and their families. When interested stakeholders in the community hear about the work of Variety, they want to become involved; thus, Variety is a strong and growing organization. As a physical therapist, I am grateful for the funding support that Variety is able to provide to children who otherwise would not have access to equipment and experiences that promote independence. As a Board member, I am proud of the efforts of the staff of Variety to promote the ogranization's mission to community providers that have now become Variety's partners. Having partnership relationships expands the possibilities available to children and families, and promotes more community awareness of the needs of others.

Recently, Variety funded adapted bicycles to children with physical disabilities; I attended the event where the kids received their bikes, and it was truly an exciting, rewarding day. Some children learned new motor skills while others learned new speeds of travel on a bike - all of them gained independence and a "typical child" experience - something we want to see happen for all kids.
