I've thrown out a challenge to our system of 7,500+ CENTURY 21 realtors across Canada to send 200 kids with disabilities to camp.
We are currently sitting at having sent 150 kids since we started "CENTURY 21 Kids to Camp" in September 2008. That's only our latest "branding" of fundraising for Easter Seals, in our 30+ years of working with that amazing charity.
You can now watch CENTURY 21 Canada's efforts in fundraising for these kids - it costs $2,100 per youth - at a new portal, Century21.EasterSeals.ca:
- Watch the videos
- Read the CENTURY 21 Canada Twitter stream
- Check out the success stories of CENTURY 21 realtors raising money for kids with disabilities
- Join the Facebook group for Century 21 Kids to Camp
The CENTURY 21 Easter Seals blog, with commenting, features coverage of such cool initiatives as:
- Carl Oake, owner/broker of Century 21 United Realty Inc. in Peterborough, ON, raising more than half a million dollars (!) with annual swim-a-thons since 1987
- First-time fashion show held by Century 21 Heritage Group in Richmond Hill, ON to raise more than $12,000 in one evening
- An astounding $31,000 raised in a golf tourney held by Century 21 B.J. Roth in Barrie, ON
- A newer program, called the Easter Seals Drop Zone has "superheroes" scaling down the sides of skyscrapers to raise funds to send kids to camp
Easter Seals Camps serve more than 6,000 children with disabilities annually at 22 locations. The summer camps have what you would normally expect: camp fire stories and songs, swimming, kangaroo court, structured activities and so on. Some even include a climbing wall, high rope course and giant swing – all fully accessible to kids with disabilities.
