Easter Seals Paper Egg Campaign

Each spring participating retailers across Canada sponsor the Easter Seals Paper Egg campaign supporting kids and young adults with disabilities and special needs. In Alberta, retailers ask customers to purchase a $2 paper egg in support of Easter Seals kids. Look for the colourful egg display in store windows across Alberta of our generous retailers.   Go HERE to purchase your Egg.

The 2015 Paper Egg campaign runs March 9 - April 5 at the following retail locations:

The Bargain! Shop/Red Apple, Booster Juice, Peavey Mart, Albert's Restaurants, Campers Village, Singleton's Hair Care, Canadian Tire (North), Kosmos Restaurants and On the Rocks Restaurant.


Local Musicians play Inglewood’s Ironwood for Easter Seals Alberta

Where:  Ironwood Stage and Grill, 1229 9 Avenue SE, Calgary

When:  Sunday, March 15, 2015 from 1 to 5 pm

Why: Canwest Elevator & Lifts, partnering with Enhance Your Home Renovations, Easter Seals Alberta and Garaventa Lifts, provide a home renovation and the installation of a custom home elevator annually for one local family whose home is not currently accessible for one of its members who use a wheelchair for mobility. GAKAL is the first program of its kind in Alberta, and funded solely through community partnerships and revenue from events like this.

Join us as we celebrate an early St.Paddy's day with plenty of local music.  Hoist a green one and sing along to the sounds of the Mocking Shadows, Scott MacLeod, The Frank McShane Band, and Danielle Deighton. These musicians have graciously donated their time and talents to the cause benefiting Easter Seals Alberta. Food and drinks are available, along with some great silent auction items and a number of prize draws.

Tickets are $25.00 each. Contact Lhjd%21Kdoohofr for more information.

Did You Know Part 1

In 1951 Canadian Mothers began marches such as one led by Canada’s first female Cabinet Minister, Ellen Fairclough, MP for Hamilton West. As a result of their efforts, the research of Dr. Jonas Salk was well funded, creating the historic made-in-Canada cure for polio. Today, Easter Seals Alberta funds vital programs and services for adults with disabilities and special needs.
