About Variety Week

Variety Week is back on Global BC from October 30 – November 3, 2017!

During every Global BC newscast from Monday to Friday of Variety Week, meet children and families that need your help. Only with your support can Variety – the Children’s Charity ensure kids across BC have the tools to reach their potential and thrive.

Variety Week will let viewers experience firsthand the difference every dollar can make to a family who need assistance right now. These stories and victories will be updated as part of the 2018 Show of Hearts Telethon in February allowing donors to see their contributions in action.

The goal of Variety Week is wonderfully simple: We want to help as many kids as we possibly can!
