Easter Seals relies solely on donations from the public to provide programs and services for children and youth with physical disabilities.
You can help by collecting donations from friends and family on-line or by holding a fundraising event.
Kids with physical disabilities want to do things independently, participate in fun activities and make friends, just like any other kid. With the right equipment Easter Seals kids can be more independent and at our full accessible camps, they can try new things, meet new friends and build their self-confidence.
You can make a difference for a child with a physical disability that lasts a lifetime, by raising funds for Easter Seals.
Create a secure, personal fundraising page for you, your group or your event and send it to your all of your contacts to collect pledges. You can upload photos and personal messages. Set a fundraising goal and use the thermometer to track your fundraising progress.
Donors will get an instant tax receipt via e-mail!
Set up your personal web page and ask family and friends to make a donation instead of giving gifts for a birthday, graduation or wedding.
Hold a Fundraising Event
Whether you hold a street sale, a BBQ, a golf tournament or a car rally, the funds you raise will put smiles on the faces of children and youth with physical disabilities. Create a fundraising page and send a notice to all your friends, family and colleagues telling them about the event. Ask them to come and participate or make a donation to the event on-line. It’s that easy! Some other fundraising ideas: craft sale, pool tournament, karaoke night, fashion show, an “Idol” competition, a book sale, or a bowling night, just to name a few.
Getting kids involved in fundraising for Easter Seals, not only teaches them about volunteerism and giving back to the community, it also allows them to feel good about making a difference for other kids.
They can have fun planning their event, set their own goals and create their own fundraising page to invite people to participate or donate on-line.
Here are some fun ways young people can help kids with physical disabilities just be kids: hold a car wash, lemonade and cookie stand, popcorn sale, a Halloween Dance, or a street hockey tournament.
