Variety-the Children’s Charity is dedicated to improving the lives of children who are at-risk, underprivileged, critically ill or living with special needs. Variety provides funding to nonprofit children’s organizations for tangible items such as building expansions and renovations, equipment and programming needs. Our Kids on the Go! program provides Variety Vans, bikes, helmets, and locks to children who have never had the chance to enjoy their own bike. Specialized bikes and mobility equipment are provided for children with special needs. Variety also works with Iowa communities to provide inclusive playgrounds for children with and without special needs. The Compassion Fund partners with local hospitals to provide support to families with critically ill children.
