Easter Seals Ontario is proud to dedicate the month of March to raising awareness and support for children and youth with physical disabilities through our annual campaign: March Is Easter Seals Month (MIESM).
Easter Seals Ontario is a charitable organization that is dedicated to improving the lives of children and youth with physical disabilities. We aim to create a more inclusive, accessible, and equitable society where kids with physical disabilities are valued, respected, and given the opportunities to reach their full potential. For 76 years, our annual month-long MIESM campaign has helped make progress toward achieving these goals by promoting understanding of the challenges and experiences of Easter Seals kids and families.
This year, we are shining a light on the stories, perspectives, and contributions of individuals with physical disabilities. During the month of March, we will launch various initiatives and activities in local communities and across digital platforms that raise awareness and support for our cause. By participating in MIESM, we can make a direct impact on the lives of Easter Seals kids and create a better future for all individuals with physical disabilities.
With the launch of MIESM, we will announce our 2023 Provincial Easter Seals Ambassadors as youth representatives for the campaign and the organization. Now in its 76th year, the Provincial Easter Seals Ambassador program continues to provide a platform for kids with physical disabilities to share their journeys and develop the skills to effectively use their voices to advocate for themselves and others. Through their advocacy, they can empower even more kids with physical disabilities to pursue their dreams and make their mark on the world.
Join us this March to help create a more inclusive, accessible, and equitable society for children and youth with physical disabilities. You have the power to make a difference.
