We chose Variety-Detroit: The Children's Charity, simply helping kids no matter the need. This hits specifically close to home because as an infant and young child I was in the Variety Program. They provided funding for a prosthesis when I was about 18 months old. I was reconnected with Variety again because their organization works closely with the prothesisist who developed the guitar pick I'm currently playing with now. I figured what better way to give back to them than donate through our shirt in the Live Shot Charity Tee's series. They gave me a chance and every Kid deserves a chance.
