Young Variety- the Children's Charity

Variety Raises $3.7 Million for Iowa Children

Variety – the Children’s Charity has raised $3,706,824 to support underprivileged, at-risk and special needs children throughout Iowa. The funds have been raised throughout the year culminating with this weekend’s 42nd annual Telethon.


Over the years, Variety has provided assistance to more than 300 children’s organizations and thousands of children in various ways by providing scholarships to send special needs children to camp, purchasing specialized medical equipment for hospital pediatric units, funding specialized and traditional bikes for children throughout the state, building all-inclusive playgrounds and more.


On behalf of the children and families who are touched by Variety, our heartfelt thanks to you to everyone who helped make Telethon a huge success. It simply would not be possible without your support.
