“A true hero isn’t measured by the size of his strength, but by the strength of his heart” Zeus from HerculesDon’t all kids deserve to follow their dreams, and be the best they can be? The children we support are facing bigger challenges than most. You can help them overcome these obstacles by holding a fundraiser or participating in an event and raising money for Variety – the Children’s Charity.

Choose your challenge – set a fundraising goal and register your event or campaign with us.
Take over the internet
Share your fundraising page with your friends and foes on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, Reddit and every other social media channel you have. Find any way you can to tell everyone about it so you can reach your fundraising goal (our Toolkit will help).
Save the day
All the money you raise will go towards helping children who are sick, disadvantaged or have special needs overcome the obstacles they are facing and live life to the fullest. We will show you the impact you are making by sharing our family stories with you.
How to be a hero
Take part in a sporting event or create your own sponsored fitness challenge. It’s a great excuse to get fit for kids in need.
Hold a movie night, a trivia night, a karaoke contest, or a talent show. You are only limited by your imagination!
Host a morning tea, a special dinner party or a picnic in the park. Dress-up in your finest for a great cause!
Make birthdays and special celebrations count for kids in need too. Ask friends and family to make a donation instead of giving gifts.
You help when others can't
Your Fundraising Helps Give Aussie Kids Like Shericka a Fair Go…
Meet our track superstar, Shericka! 10 year old Shericka hails from the remote NT community of Alpurrurulam in the Barkly Region, and let’s nothing get in her way. Rocking her first blade prosthetic she recently returned from competing at the 2019 School Sport Australia Athletics Championships held in Darwin. Not only did she win a gold medal in the medley relay, a 1st place pennant for the fun athletics events day but she also set SSA records for long jump and 100m for the classification 64% in these multiclass events! 🤩
Variety NT was so proud to grant Shericka with a $3,500 Variety Heart Scholarship to help get her to the Championships, and even more proud of her amazing efforts. We have no doubt there is a track star in the making.
