With great power comes great responsibility
“A true hero isn’t measured by the size of his strength, but by the strength of his heart”
Zeus from Hercules
Don’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.
Decide what kind of hero you want to be.
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 family 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 to 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.
