Variety Show of Hearts

Daily Hive is proud to be partnered with Variety for its 51st annual Show of Hearts Telethon on February 12. For more information, visit them on Facebook, TwitterYouTube, and Instagram.

The Variety Show of Hearts telethon is gearing up, and with all the excitement, you’ve probably heard a fair bit about what Variety does for kids.

From making sure families can stay together during difficult surgeries to helping kids with mobility issues gain their independence, Variety does a lot to make sure kids in BC and the Yukon get the help they need.

If you’re wondering how you can donate to make sure these kids get the help they need, we’ve got you covered.

We’ve compiled a list of five easy ways you can donate not only during the Variety Show of Hearts telethon, but all throughout the year.


Making a donation online is both time-efficient and simple. All you have to do is go to Variety BC’s donation page and choose the amount you want to donate. You can donate any amount you want, whether it’s just once or every month. You can also donate anonymously, if that’s important to you. Plus, if you donate online, you’ll immediately receive a tax receipt.


If you find it to be more personable, you can also donate over the phone. Just call Variety’s toll-free number at 310-KIDS (310-5437) to make a donation in the amount of your choice.


This one’s super convenient. A quick and easy one time donation can be done via text. Simply text “KIDS” to 45678, and you’ll automatically make a $20 contribution.


If you want to help other people support Variety, you can always donate to a fundraiser through Variety’s fundraiser page. These fundraisers are put together by people who want to raise a certain amount for Variety. You can also start your own fundraiser to get others to put money towards the charity as well.


Although cash donations go a long way towards helping kids in BC and the Yukon, you can also make other kinds of donations. Gifts-in-kind can be donations of products, services, or property. Email Variety BC at [email protected] for more information on how you can make this kind of donation.

The Variety Show of Hearts telethon will be on Global BC from 9:30 am to 5:30 pm on February 12. For more information on the Variety Show of Hearts telethon, and what the charity does, visit them on Facebook, TwitterYouTube, and Instagram.
