Often a child’s condition is complex, which means care and support is needed for various aspects of their development throughout their childhood – support that is often not covered by public or private health plans. It is a journey that children and their families face with perseverance, and with the support of donors, Variety is by their side.
This is at the heart of what we do. Our donors make it possible.
"Families across our province are struggling and we continue to see record-breaking requests for urgent support and specialized care. The essential programs and resources made possible by our generous donors can transform daily realities for children and change the trajectory of their future."
- Andrea Tang, CEO, Variety BC
Because of you, families never have to go it alone. When a child with special needs receives support early on, it impacts not only the child but can also improve the well-being of the entire family and the community at large. Your support helps to build a strong and positive support systems, so children can thrive.
"It's a critical time for many families as the need for support is immense. The Variety Show of Hearts is an opportunity for all of us to step up and help vulnerable families across the province. Global BC viewers are simply incredible in how they give so generously and I know our community will rise to meet the challenge."
- Bhupinder Hundal, News Director & Station Manager, Global BC
Together, we can be there when a family needs us the most.
Thank you for allowing us to persistently work towards our vision - that every child who has special needs achieves their full potential.
