Variety the Children's Charity found its calling on Christmas Eve, 1928 when an infant was found abandoned in a theatre in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. When news that Variety, a newly formed club made up of eleven young men affiliated with show business, had agreed to sponsor the needs and education of this child, support began to flow in from the community. Before long, more clothes, food, money and toys were collected than any one child would ever need, so Variety proposed to use the surplus to help other disadvantaged children. From this humble beginning a small group of dedicated individuals has grown into a multinational children's charity with tents (chapters) in 14 countries around the world.
Countless children with special needs, children who are living in the midst of poverty, and children with serious medical concerns are supported by Variety's goodwill, compassion and financial assistance.
