Her mom, Cynthia, makes so many things possible for Cierra, but Cynthia has recently injured her back and can no longer lift Cierra.

Meet the Kids: Sophia

SophiaSophia is five years old and full of energy. She has Autism, global developmental delay, impulse control disorder. In addition, she is non-verbal and has severe elopement issues.  This means that Sophia has no understanding of danger or boundaries.  She runs off in stores, parking lots and from the family’s yard. One scary day she left her classroom to climb a fire escape, planning to “fly!”  A stander is a piece of equipment that would help Sophia in so many ways. It would allow her to be more social and spend time outside of her home. Most of all, it would ease her family’s minds just knowing that Sophia is safe.  How can you put a price on safety?   Variety can!   For just $2,000, Sophia can have the stander she so desperately needs.  Can you help?   Contact

Meet the Kids: Charles


When 15 year old Charlie was just three months old, he was shaken severely enough to cause brain injury.  There was a time in the past that he could help his family transfer him into bed etc., but no longer has that ability.
He is about to have surgery for rods in his back and needs a ceiling lift for his post op care.  Life has not always been fair or kind to Charlie – but Variety supporters can help change that. Help Variety get Charlie and his family the equipment he needs for a safer, easier life.

Meet the Kids: Aeris

20150902_08.13.32Three-year-old Aeris is AMAZING, according to the aunt raising Aeris.  Born with Down Syndrome, Aeris also suffered from malnutrition and neglect at the hands of her mother.

In her new home, she is now getting healthy.  Thanks to a generous friend, she was even making strides in picture recognition and signing using a hand-me-down iPad.  Until it was stolen.

Her aunt, a single mother of three, can’t replace this important communication device, but through generous donors like you – Variety can!  To help, visit or email
