October 17 - 21

Help us reach our goal of helping 800 more kids!

We hope you’ll tune in to Global BC’s newscasts from October 17 to 21 when all week long, you’ll get to meet some of the amazing kids whose lives you’ve impacted since our Variety Show of Hearts Telethon

For over 55 years, Variety – the Children’s Charity has been supporting children & youth with special needs across BC. With the help of our generous donors, we are continually working towards a future where we can say YES! to every child in need of our help.


With the help of our supporters, we are always striving to respond when gaps in the system are identified. Together we are meeting the needs of families and affecting change in the province.

We're here to help

Whether you are a family with a child with special needs, a school that needs a sensory path or room, an organization that needs safe transportation for children with special needs, we can help you.

Ways to give

When you give, you’re making a difference in a child’s life.

We want to empower every child with special needs to reach their potential and thrive. With the support of our donors, we can get there. 

Our Impact

We’re transforming the lives of BC kids with special needs, every day.
