Get Creative - Join a Level Up for Kids Event
Throughout the year Variety Level Up for kids holds events and themed streams for you to take part in. Check out our special months below!
Bikes for Kids!
All of June
Throughout June, we're running our Bikes for Kids event. You can help provide a child with one of the biggest moments of their life - getting their first bike!
We need to raise 450 bikes to provide joy, inclusion, physical AND mental benefits to kids who would otherwise miss out. AND this year we're also fundraising for 19 special adaptive bikes so kids to bring these life-changing benefits to kids living with disability.
We're inviting you and the Level Up for Kids crew to take part by streaming for kids in need, or even physically riding bikes!
All of March!
Access-ABILITY is a month-long charity event celebrating accessible games, all while helping kids in need!
The first few weeks features lots of interviews with game devs on Accessibility in Games, with the last week being the week of streams!
We’re inviting our Variety Level Up for Kids community and friends to take part by streaming accessible games to support our Variety SHINE program that gives kids the access and ability to SHINE in the classroom!
Assets avilable – themed animated overlays, social promo tiles and more!
