Variety- The Children’s Charity of Georgia, a 501(c )(3), has created the Stars of Tomorrow event to help children between the ages of 13-19 gain experience, exposure, and the opportunity to pursue a singing career. Additionally, all funds raised from the event will support Variety of Georgia. The fundraising goal for the event is $100,000 to support the mission of Variety.
Variety-The Children’s Charity of Georgia, Tent 21, was established in Atlanta in 1939 and our mission is to aid and enhance the lives of children in need who may be challenged by physical and/or mental disabilities, poverty, abuse or neglect. Variety of Georgia has positively impact thousands of children over the past 70 years, and we are enhancing more direct programs to ensure we directly impact over 4,000 children a year. Variety has three direct giving programs as well as partnering with other organizations that support children. Our programs consist of: Freedom Kids, Future Kids, and Caring for Kids.
The Variety Freedom Program provides funding for mobility so that kids can get out and about into the sunshine. Variety helps thousands of children each year gain mobility and thereby, their freedom, independence and the chance to join in with other kids in the community. Our program is continually evolving with more customized special needs bikes being presented to a child each year. This program will ensure Georgia's children with mobility challenges will receive mobility bikes, lifts, wheelchairs, walkers, and prosthetic limbs. This program allows freedom but also aids in the occupational/physical therapy needs of these children.
A new addition to this program is bikes for kids. Variety is partnering with other organizations to identify underprivileged children who are good students and well-mannered to receive a bike and helmet. To date we have given 360 bikes away to underprivileged children.
Children are our future and with the Variety Future Kids Program we help kids who are disadvantaged or with disabilities achieve more and fulfill their potential. Designed to offer assistance to children in a variety of different capacities including: back-to-school program, adaptive learning technology, movie screening for special needs or underprivileged children, holiday party for children, and special events to learning centers, plays, sporting events, museums, and the like.
The Variety Caring for Kids program is designed to offer assistance to children. We provide direct assistance for special needs children that require durable medical equipment that is not considered mobility equipment or covered by insurance, peachcare , and Medicaid/medicare. We want the best for our children and new technology is available every year.
