Review for Variety - The Children's Charity of Wisconsin, Elm Grove, WI, USA
Over the summer my daughter Hannah was able to receive a three wheel bike from Variety and a very kind donor. I am a single mother whom was never able to afford any type of bike for her, and she fought for several years learning just how to ride one borrowed usually from the school she attended. But last year, Hannah's world fell apart with behavior problems, weight gain, and overall dissappointment from many reasons. Her sister is 16 months younger and would always take Hannah out with us on family time on her borrowed bikes. This was the only way for Hannah to really enjoy time with her sister as Hannah cannot speak. An unspoken language occurs when they are riding together it makes me heart beat really fast just to be around them. Alas, I heard of a non-profit business that was picking a few children for a bike. I raced around praying that my doctors and therapists would see the need for Hannah to have this precious gift. No matter how hard I worked I could not seem to be able to give Hannah this gift myself because of the need for special adaptive features. I received that call, and Variety changed our life. In only a few short weeks of receiving the bike Hannah was able to control her weight better, be more energetic, and she smiles again. Her school is shocked by the difference, and so am I. Thank you to Variety and the family whom made our dreams come true.
