Urgent Appeal

We need your help!

As the world faces an unprecedented public health emergency, Variety NSW/ACT is facing a financial crisis that was inconceivable just a few months ago.  

The COVID-19 pandemic is having a devastating impact on our ability to raise funds, and is threatening our capacity to continue granting to kids and families who need our support more than ever.

We're already hearing heartbreaking stories from families struggling to access the medical support and everyday essentials their child needs. And for many parents of kids with chronic illness, of the stress and financial impact of needing to self-isolate early due to the very real threat the virus presents to their immune-deficient children.

We need you, our Variety community, to help us be here to support kids who are sick, disadvantaged or have special needs. Your gift, big or small, will help us continue to be there for Australia’s most vulnerable kids and their families during this time of crisis.

"My son has cystic fibrosis, a chronic respiratory illness. The stress and anxiety that this pandemic is causing is debilitating for me and my family. Having a child with a chronic illness is hard enough at the best of times…I fear now more than ever for my child's life."

Thousands of kids and their families need Variety more than ever during the COVID-19 pandemic
