Easter Seals Ontario’s Annual Campaign
March is Easter Seals Month, Easter Seals Ontario’s annual fundraising and awareness campaign for kids with physical disabilities. The annual campaign focuses on raising awareness of the ongoing issues and needs of children with physical disabilities and how people can lend their support in their own communities. Children and youth with physical disabilities face challenges on a daily basis, including issues surrounding accessibility and lack of opportunities to socialize and participate in recreational activities. For many, this results in feelings of social isolation and lack of self-esteem. Easter Seals’ programs and services enable young people to participate in activities, integrate in their communities and enjoy fun and freedom just like other kids. The annual Easter Seals direct mail campaign, containing the traditional Easter “seals”, will arrive in homes across the province during the first two weeks of March.
