All children are special.

Variety – the Children’s Charity’s purpose is to serve children who are less fortunate – children who live and grow up with a serious illness, disability or disadvantage. These are extra special children who require a special kind of help.

That help is you and Variety - the Children's Charity of New York

Under three core programs Variety – the Children’s Charity delivers on its promise to provide a future without limits for every child, regardless of their background or ability, and to be the most trusted and effective children’s charity in the tri-state area.

Variety’s Care Program

Delivers critical life-saving medical equipment and services, healthcare and well-being to individual children and children’s health organizations.

Variety’s Freedom Program

Delivers vital life-changing equipment and services for mobility, independence and social inclusion to individual children and children’s organizations.

Variety’s Future Program

Delivers crucial life-enriching communication equipment and services, education and self-esteem to individual children and children’s organizations.

We're different.

Unlike most charitable organizations that focus on a single area problem or issue, Variety focuses on multiple unmet needs of children who are sick, disadvantaged or live with disabilities and other special needs at a local, national and international level. Our aim is to maximize the real, long-term positive social impact for all children. Variety welcomes the support of any person who shares our ideals and objectives – the profound and long-term life changing benefits your donation and support delivers to a child cannot be overstated. Although Variety’s work is serious, we never forget the importance of having fun. Bringing smiles to the faces of children is a positive and fun experience for Variety volunteers, sponsors and supporters.

"I can push myself further than I thought, talk with other to get to know them better. I will help out around the house more because things make a difference."
