Our Vision

To be recognized throughout Manitoba as an organization that makes a meaningful and genuine contribution to the lives of children.

Variety, the Children’s Charity, has raised more than $32 million in Manitoba and touched the hearts of over 820,000 children to meet the special needs of children with all abilities. Our efforts enable children to participate more fully in life’s activities. Variety provides funds for adapted equipment so that children can run as well as walk; play hockey instead of watching TV; “read” computers even though they may be blind. Established in 1978, Variety the Children’s Charity of Manitoba is associated with Variety Canada under the auspices of Variety International.

Operating with a volunteer Board of Directors, a dedicated group of volunteers and a very small staff, Variety is recognized as one of the premier children’s charities in the province.

Our Mission

Variety, the Children’s Charity, is dedicated to raising funds that enable us to meet the tangible needs of children of all abilities in Manitoba.
