Century 21 continues to enhance the quality of life, self-esteem and self-determination of hundreds of Canadian children with disabilities.
Last summer, Century 21 realtors across Canada raised a record amount for Easter Seals and the Kids to Camp program with over $500,000 in funds, enough to send over 240 kids to camp. Watch Kids to Camp on YouTube.
This year, we are proud to announce that Century 21 Millennium has already reached our funding goal! Last year, our local realtors raised $2,100 and so far this year, we’ve raised $2,400 for the Kids to Camp program.
The Kids to Camp program was implemented in 2009 when the Easter Seals Canada organization began to ask for support by way of a range of special events and fundraisers from across the country. It’s a chance for the kids to meet other kids facing challenges and to see them accomplish things that they thought they could never do! This is priceless!
Easter Seals can be traced as far back as 1922 when 10 concerned representatives got together to discuss the lack of support, and inadequate resources for children with physical disabilities. They quickly began to see a dire need for action; and so, they formed the Ontario Society for Crippled Children, inspired by the American organization of the same name, which had been recently created by Ohio businessman, Edgar Allen.
Since then, Easter Seals has grown into a highly recognized organization that continues to successfully enhance the quality of life, self-esteem and self-determination of Canadian’s with disabilities.
Did you know?
- Easter Seals was the first organization to employ nurses to carry services into the home.
- For more than 30 years, Century 21 Real Estate Professionals have been supporting children living with disabilities from across Canada.
Thanks to our generous donors, Easter Seals Ontario continues to offer programs that allow children with physical disabilities to experience freedom, independence and a sense of accomplishment. For many families, Easter Seals is a place to turn for help when they need it.
New this year is Century 21’s Closing Gifts for Kids online campaign. For every sale of a property, the realtor commits to donating $21 to Easter Seals in the name of their client. At Century 21, this year’s goal is to break the $1 million mark by launching an exciting new way to get involved!
