Variety – the Children’s Charity of BC is once again partnering with their friends at Global BC to present Variety Week. The fall campaign will run from October 30 to November 3, culminating with a live-on-location finale and street festival at Robson Square in Downtown Vancouver.

Variety Week on Global

Where: Global newscasts (morning, noon, 6:00pm)
When: Monday, October 30 to Friday, November 3, 2017

Throughout all their newscasts during the week, Global BC will feature stories, interviews and entertainment encouraging donations by showcasing the charitable work Variety BC facilitates throughout the province – ensuring children with special needs have the support needed to thrive.

“Every year there are more and more families relying on our support,” remarked Variety BC interim CEO, Cally Wesson. “Our goal for Variety Week is once again very simple: we want to help as many of these kids and families as we possibly can. The support and coverage we receive from Global BC during Variety Week is instrumental in showing audiences the need for their support and the direct impact it has on some extremely deserving children.”

Donations can be made online, by calling 310-KIDS, or texting KIDS to 45678 to make an automatic $20 contribution. Donor names will be aired on Global BC newscasts throughout the week.

Viewers will experience firsthand the difference every dollar can make to a family in need, as they are introduced to children and families 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.

Variety – the Children’s Charity steps in where health care ends, providing direct help to children with special needs in BC and the Yukon. For over 50 years Variety has ensured children have the support to reach their potential.
