The annual Paper Egg Campaign is one of Easter Seals’ signature national fundraising and awareness initiatives. Part of our “Easter Seals Month” celebration, the Paper Egg Campaign is a grassroots fundraising effort that brings communities together to raise funds for Canadians living with disabilities.
From March 20 – April 16, our corporate partners in cities and towns all across Canada will encourage their customers to purchase colourful Easter Seals paper eggs at the checkout for $2 ($1 in Saskatchewan). Customers are asked to sign their name on the eggs which are then proudly displayed on store windows and walls to create a powerful display of support. You can also purchase eggs online and send a personalized Easter Seals Spring eCard to your family and friends.
Funds raised through the Campaign allow Easter Seals to deliver a variety of programs and services for Canadians living with disabilities. Egg sales help to fund:
- Financial assistance and direct-to-client programs for mobility equipment, assistive technology, communication devices and learning aids to maximize independence and improve quality of life
- Incredible, life-changing summer camp programs for kids with disabilities
- Sport, recreation and leisure programming to encourage active participation and enhanced well-being
- Education, job training, employment services and social enterprise initiatives to inspire positive and productive lives
- Scholarships and bursaries to support youth with disabilities in their pursuit for personal growth and achievement through continuous learning and higher education
- Rehabilitative and occupational therapy programs to improve life skills and optimize functional ability
- Residential and respite programs for families of children with disabilities and medical conditions
- Access 2 Program to improve social inclusion and provide access to entertainment and recreational opportunities for people with permanent disabilities who require a support person
With your support, we can help all Canadian living with disabilities become unstoppABLE!
