There’s just one week left to contribute to Variety – the Children’s Charity of BC’s spring Heartstrings campaign, where they’ve been stringing together messages of hope and inspiration from Variety kids, families and donors.
They say it takes a village to raise a child and that’s especially true for a child with complex needs. And for many families, their child’s support team needs different kinds of trained professionals who are financially out of reach for their family.
Every donation makes a difference. No matter the size of your donation, your generosity ensures that every child has the chance to thrive. The essential programs and resources Variety provides transforms daily realities for children and changes the trajectory of their lives for the better.
Meet families like Prescott’s Mom, Lindsey from Kelowna. 2-year-old Prescott who was born premature and developed a condition known as PVL (Periventricular Leukomalacia) which led to a Cerebral Palsy diagnosis last year. Variety has been providing her with both physiotherapy and speech therapy as she is not able to walk or talk yet. Lindsey shares: “The therapies that Prescott’s receiving are having a tremendous impact and because she’s so young, they’re giving her the best chance to be independent as she grows. I’m so grateful to Variety and their generosity of their donors.”
