What is the Paper Egg #unstoppABLETM Campaign?

Booster Juice staff in Manitoba promoting Paper EggsThe annual Paper Egg #unstoppABLETM Campaign is one of Easter Seals’ signature national fundraising and awareness initiatives. Part of our “March is Easter Seals Month” celebrations, the Paper Egg Campaign is a grassroots fundraising effort that brings individuals and communities all across Canada together to raise funds for Canadians living with disabilities.

Each Spring, Easter Seals corporate and business partners in cities and towns all across the country will encourage their customers to purchase colourful Easter Seals paper eggs at the store’s checkout counters. Customers are asked to sign their name on the eggs which are then proudly put up on store windows and walls to create a powerful display of support. You can also purchase Paper Eggs online at www.paperegg.ca and send a personalized Easter Seals Spring e-Card to your family and friends.

Funds raised through the Campaign enable Easter Seals to deliver a variety of programs and services for Canadians living with disabilities.

The Paper Eggs are getting a Brand New Look!

After many years, the Easter Seals Paper Egg is getting a fresh new look starting from 2019! The colours and imagery of the Paper Eggs will now better reflect Easter Seals’ identity, and the mission and purpose of the organization.

Instead of the purple Paper Eggs with a drawing of a yellow chick, look out for the new red Paper Eggs featuring photo images of former participants of Easter Seals programs and services.
