My Holiday Hope & Owen’s Joy!

With it being my last holiday season as your Chief ‘Excitement’ Officer, I hope you’ll consider an end-of-year donation to celebrate all the impact we’ve created together over many years.

Community support has been critical to the success of our programs, which are truly changing the lives of kids with disabilities and their families for the better.

Since 2012, Variety has presented more than 6,900 adaptive bikes, adaptive strollers, and communication devices (worth more than $10.4 million in equipment) – thanks to incredible community supporters.

If you’re able, you can give a donation online at, or can use this donation form to mail in a donation — truly, any amount makes such a difference.

As a special thanks, I wanted to share a photo of Owen, who used his communication device to visit with Santa Claus a few weeks ago!

Owen’s mom, Danielle shared with joy, “Owen has been doing amazing with his communication device. It’s been life changing! We just got out Santa pictures and I had to share this with you. Thank you for everything!”

Thanks for being a part of Variety’s work, where IT’S ALL ABOUT THE KIDS!

Take good care,


Charles P. LaVallee
