There’s still time to donate.


When one life is transformed, an entire community benefits. That's the Variety effect.

This Variety Week, we’d like you to consider the ripple effect that your gift creates. When you help a child get the critical resources they need to thrive, you are also helping their parents, siblings, teachers, friends and everyone in their lives. Every gift begins a powerful wave of positive impact that is felt throughout homes, schools, and communities to transform lives and brighten futures. That’s the Variety effect—and every donor is a part of it.

Please give today and be sure to tune into Global BC newscasts from October 16 – 20, when all week long you’ll get to meet some of the amazing kids whose lives you are transforming with your support. Kids in BC need your help more than ever. Double your donation with a matched gift today!

Donate today and your gift will double in impact.

Because every kid deserves the chance to thrive and reach their unique potential. Until October 31, all one-time gifts and monthly gifts for the first 12 months will be generously matched by a group of supporters committed to protecting the health and wellbeing of children with disabilities and complex healthcare needs. Your donation today will be matched to go twice as far!

Please give today and help reimagine the possibilities for kids in BC.

Help more kids be kids.

Help spread the word to create a wave of positive impact that can change the trajectory of a child’s future.

Richard Brodeur's "All Inclusive"

Richard Brodeur is a renowned contemporary artist who many Canadians will affectionately remember as his famed and legendary NHL moniker, “King Richard.” Brodeur began painting to support his mental wellbeing after retiring from his NHL career as a beloved goalkeeper and credits his passion for painting to saving his life. “Without it,” he says, “I don’t know where I would be.” The painting ‘All Inclusive’ represents inclusivity. The fence bordering the ice rink represents the barriers that kids can face to truly feel included in something larger than themselves, like a good old fashioned game of hockey. Despite the fence, and despite their barriers, they can all play.
