Variety the Children's Charity of St. Louis
July 13, 2011
When my nephew Daunte was born, we made a decision as a family that we would do everything we could to prevent him from being limited by Spina bifida. We knew he was going to have a long, hard road ahead of him, but we were committed to allowing Daunte to thrive just like all of his siblings. We had no idea how expensive therapies and equipment to allow him the most basic functions, such as mobility, would be. Variety Club has stepped up every time Daunte has needed equipment as he has grown. Daunte rides his bike to the park with his brothers and cousins, speeds through the house in his little quickie, and even goes shopping and runs errands with me in his full sized chair. By being able to get around with other kids, Daunte has the confidence to go anywhere and play with any child. That confidence and independence is something that was given to him by not just his family, but in large part due to Variety Club. We cannot thank this charity enough for allowing my nephew to be the outgoing, confident little man he now is.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
watching my nephew learn to use his wheel chair and helping to teach him how to ride a bike donated by Variety Club.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
give them unlimited funding so they could do as much good as possible for as many families as possible.
