A Thank You Letter from Catie’s Family


Variety Children’s Charity of Greater Kansas City has an impact for so many families in the Kansas City area. Our daughter Catie as well as our family have been blessed by Variety Children’s Charity with the donation of an adaptive tricycle and orthotics. Catie has four siblings so mobility is vital in her world. The adaptive tricycle allowed Catie to ride beside her brothers and sisters. The orthotics have given Catie the strength to begin to learn to run. Variety Children’s Charity gave Catie the gift of being “just one of the kids”.

Additionally, Variety Children’s Charity has benefited our family by allowing us to meet a number of incredible giving individuals and families. Variety kids have given our family the gift of perspective. Variety kids cherish each day and value each moment. Their smiles and laughter are infectious to the soul.

Thank you Variety Children’s Charity of Greater Kansas City for blessing Catie with the gift of movement and blessing our family with your impact in the lives of kids with special abilities.


A Thank You Letter from Wickam’s Family

Dear Variety,
Our family is so deeply appreciative of your generosity in covering our bill for Wickam’s orthotic shoes. Thank you SO much for all you do. Because of your generous gift Wickam has been able to receive the shoes and we can already see how they are helping, without you he may not have had this opportunity. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Wickam is now very very close to being able to walk without our assistance as the support on his feet and ankles from the shoes is not only strengthening those areas but helping him to balance. Again, thank you for your generosity in helping kids and their families! We would love to meet you all soon so we can provide you with hugs!! =)

Blessings, Wickam’s Family
