Raised so far
Join Me and Share in the Kindness
Update 2 June
Wow! Your kindness is overwhelming - together we have raised enough 50 bikes for kids living with disadvantage! Thank you from the bottom f our hearts. We are well on our way to our target to raise enough to donate 200 bikes by 30 June!
Now more than ever, families are under increased strain to cover essential items. This means more Australian kids will miss out on the freedom, joy, independence and inclusion of owning a bike.
We thought about not running the Variety Bikes for Kids appeal this year, because we know people are struggling. But we also know, from surveying and speaking to our Variety families, that they are doing it tougher than ever, and that an act of kindness and joy will mean more than it ever has before.
After almost 40 years of personal involvement, I know the Variety community and I know how much you care. Your incredible support of the charity that you and I both love has brought joy to thousands of kids who are sick, disadvantaged or have special needs.
That’s why I’m asking you to please consider giving your most generous gift this year. We're aiming to raise $43,600 to provide 200 bike packages for kids living with disadvantage. You can make this happen!
Despite changing times, the Variety Bikes for Kids mission remains consistent: to give the gift of independence and joy to children who have never been fortunate enough to have a bike of their own. Since I started this campaign 18 years ago, together we have raised over $2.5 million and granted 11,000 bikes to kids living with disadvantage.It’s such a special campaign, and I’m so proud you and I are a part of it.
With your help today we can make sure ALL kids get to experience the joy, freedom and independence of their very first bike. There’s nothing like seeing a child’s face light up, just like mine did all those years ago - as you may remember from when YOU were that small boy or girl, just like I do.
Thank you for being a powerful force of kindness behind this work. It is more impactful than ever.
