Greetings Friends!   

I would like you to meet Nenetzy, a 4-year-old girl who loves looking fashionable with her big colored hair bows. Although she is quiet and shy, her beautiful smile can light up any room. Born at only 29 weeks, Nenetzy faced many challenges as a premature baby. She was diagnosed with cerebral palsy at the age of one. This is a condition that affects the body’s physical movement.  

Variety – the Children’s Charity of the Desert was determined to provide her with an adaptive bike that would allow her to exercise her physical movement as well as bring joy to her life. Nenetzy was excited and ready to give the adaptive bike a try. Within only five minutes of testing the bike, the excitement kicked in and she pedaled away without anyone’s assistance!  

Her determination is an example of what fuels the efforts of Variety’s Team to continue finding ways to support children with special needs and who are disadvantaged! And you made this possible, Friends! Your support of the work of Variety – the Children’s Charity of the Desert ensures children have access to transportation, adaptive equipment, and opportunities that they cannot achieve through another source.  

Please join us with a donation during the 26th Annual KPLM BIG 106 Cares for Kids Radiothon which raises critical funds to ensure children like Nenetzy can continue to be served in the year ahead. We are impacting the lives of more children than ever before, and we can’t do it without your generous support. 

Thank you for being a part of Variety and joining us in impacting and serving the community. You are making a difference in the lives of local children and families, and we are grateful to partner with you to reach them!  

In partnership,  

Heidi Maldoon
