Variety Christmas Appeal


Make it a magical Christmas
for a family like Tyler’s

Your gift this Christmas will support Kiwi families facing overwhelming costs for urgently-needed medical or mobility equipment, therapeutic care or other support for a child with extra needs.

Kiwi Kid Sponsors: How to give a Christmas gift to your sponsored child or children

Tyler has multiple conditions including hypotonia, or low muscle tone – a disability that makes him wobbly on his feet.

His mother, Kelly, relies on a stroller to move him around and keep him safe, but his current one is no longer adequate, and the specialised one he desperately needs is far beyond Kelly’s budget.

Without the stroller, getting out and about would be much harder and Tyler would be isolated from the hospital support they need to manage his complex needs.

"For Tyler, having a new stroller for Christmas would be amazing. It would mean the world to both of us, and enable him to be part of our community."  Kelly

Each month, we receive new funding applications for children with extra needs. Sadly, we only have the resources to fund less than half of these heartfelt requests.

This year, Variety is determined to give children like Tyler a gift that they’ll remember forever. With your kind support today, we can help many more families like Tyler’s this Christmas.
