Variety paid for Gavin to have a special assessment to see if he was Autistic. As a result, Gavin was diagnosed with moderate Autism. This diagnosis will open up doors for Gavin and allow him to receive extra behavioural & educational support. His mom, Sylvia, wrote us an incredible thank you letter that we would like to share with you.
"If it wasnít for Variety covering the costs of Gavinís assessment, Gavin may have lost his support at school. If this had happened he would have become another statistic that fell between the cracks and his future, I know, would have been doomed.
I know that people often do not donate because they feel like their five dollars is not going to do anything. They feel that if they cannot give a large donation that there is no point. Well, Iím here to remind everyone that if you have five dollars or even one dollar, please donate! All those donations add up to hundreds, which add up to thousands and before you know it, you have become a part of helping a child in need. A child like my Gavin.
You have provided the opportunity for this young boy to successfully grow into a young man! I offer these common words to say thank you once again. I trust you will know the difference you have made in the life and the future of a little boy named Gavin.
Sylvia & Gavin"
