From Jill DeBok:
My favorite memory of Variety was watching my daughter the moment she fell in love with philanthropy. We were at a Variety gift presentation, and when she saw the joy on the boy’s face (as he was riding a bike for the first time), I could see the empathy and compassion on her face. Since that moment, my daughter and I have shared many other moments of helping other children through Variety, and it’s a very special part of our mother-daughter relationship.
Through our 80 Stories, 80 Days campaign, we are asking all of you who have been touched by our organization in any way to share your story and help us gain more support for Kansas City children with developmental disabilities.
