For two weeks in July and August, we came to you, our supporters, with a challenge. This challenge was to raise funds to purchase a power wheelchair for a child with special needs.
A power wheelchair is a daily need for Variety Kids - these wheelchairs help with mobility, independence and confidence. And, most importantly, power chairs allow these children and teens to just be kids!
Last year, a generous donor realized this need and made the decision to present a matching gift challenge. Last year’s challenge was successful, and resulted in Variety Teen Kathryn receiving an amazing power chair, and all of the benefits that come with it.
This year, the same donor decided to yet again put forth a challenge so that Variety could provide another child with a much-needed power wheelchair. We are excited to announce that, through this challenge, you helped us raise $24,610!
Thank you to everyone who stepped up to meet the challenge. Because of you, another Variety Kid will enjoy life to the fullest through a new power wheelchair. We can’t wait to share his or her story with you all!
