Variety Brats Magical Tour of Joy

Help us bring joy to kids in isolation

Help Us Raise $1,000 to Bring Joy to Kids in Isolation

The first school holidays usually mark a very exciting time at Variety Vic – the 2020 Variety Brats Bash! This year, due to the global COVID-19 pandemic we’re doing things a little differently.

Originally, our fleet of 19 families were headed on a Magical Mystery Tour around Australia. As this is no longer possible, we decided to get creative and find a new way to spread the joy!

Our Variety Brats Bash is about quality family time, and kids helping kids. The true core of the Variety family values. Our Variety kids living with illness and disability are often already isolated and immune compromised, now they are more vulnerable than ever. Many of our Variety kids living in disadvantaged families are increasingly missing out on essential items. They may not have access to the internet or devices and are at risk of further isolation and ongoing educational disadvantage.

They need our help more than ever.

So...instead of travelling on a Magical Mystery Tour across Australia this year, we’ll be travelling on a magical tour of joy!

Variety - the Children's Charity will be zero-contact delivering a Variety Joy Pack to a child in need for each day our crew was due to be out on the road - that's 8 days and 8 packs of joy.

BUT WE WANT TO SPREAD THE JOY EVEN MORE! Each Variety Joy Pack, filled with toys, books and games, is valued at over $96 and we want to raise $1,000 so we can bring joy to 10 more kids!

And it's all a surprise! Our Variety Kids don’t know we’re on our way to spread the love. Wait ‘til you see the look on their faces! We'll be sharing pics and videos of kids opening their Variety Joy Packs, sent to us by their families, right here on this page so keeping checking back to see your donation at work. 

Please give today and leave a special message to help us share the joy! All donations over $2 are tax-deductible.
