"Every person who supports Variety helps empower a child to fulfill their unique potential," said Erica Lopez, executive director of Variety - the Children's Charity of the United States. "Each Gold Heart pin sold means that Variety can provide things like custom-fitted adaptive tricycles, communication devices and activities such as camp for kids and teens with special needs."
