Variety is able to respond quickly in an emergency to meet the needs of children in crisis across New Zealand. By supporting a Variety emergency appeal your money will go directly to families who need it most.

When the Christchurch earthquakes struck we rallied our networks and supporters to raise $429,649 to assist over 1000 children and families who had been affected. The funds were used to provide essential childcare items, warm clothing and shoes, bedding, blankets, firewood and heating, replacement mobility and medical equipment, transport costs for families who were displaced and much more.

There are no Variety Emergency Appeals running currently. To make a general donation to assist Variety work helping Kiwi kids in need please click here
