Spring Paper Egg #unstoppABLE Campaign

Each Spring, Canadians can show their support for Easter Seals by purchasing Easter Seals Paper Eggs at the cashier or customer service desk at participating stores and retail locations across Canada. Donations raised during this eggs-citing campaign help funds Easter Seals programs and services in support of Canadians living with disabilities across the country. 

DROP ZONE

Look up, look way up! The Drop Zone is a series of knee-shaking, heart-racing, adrenaline-pumping events that is held in multiple cities across Canada each year. Participants sign-up and fundraise to become superheros for a day by rappelling off a towering high-rise building – all in support of Canadians living with disabilities.

Red Shirt Day & National AccessAbility Week

Red Shirt Day is an Easter Seals initiative to raise awareness and promote dialogue about accessibility and inclusion of people living with disabilities. Taking place on Wednesday during National AccessAbility Week each year, Canadians can show their support for people who are living with disabilities, accessibility and inclusion by wearing red on Red Shirt Day.

The Reimagine Employability Campaign

Easter Seals’ Reimagine Employability Campaign aims to promote more inclusive and accessible hiring practices and workplaces – an issue that people with disabilities have long advocated for. The ability of many companies in pivoting to work-from-home set-ups as a response to COVID-19 shows that alternative work practices are possible.
