Can you imagine if you were thirsty or in pain and could not tell someone? Could not get help or relief? The daily frustration of being or having a non-verbal child can be very stressful. And it is a quick fix! Ten-year-old Kylee just needs an $80 app to help her communicate – but $80 to a single mother of two might as well be eight thousand. Variety’s generous supporters get that! And they made sure Kylee got that app, and with it, the ability to communicate with her mother, brother and caregivers. The happiness app…because that’s what it brought to Kylee’s life!

Five-year-old Aayush has severe developmental delays and low muscle tone. It is a difficult cycle – he needs exercise to get stronger, but it is hard to find safe ways to exercise. One way is an adaptive tricycle. He tried one out at school and loves it. Having one at home not only gives him more chances to be active and gain strength; it gives him inclusion – inclusion and pride of riding around the neighborhood with the other kids.
Variety friends and supporters believe every child should be active, be social and belong! If you believe that too, visit www.varietykc.org to help!
