Dec. 3 is International Day for Persons with Disabilities

Technology is for Everyone! 



There’s no doubt - technology has shaped the world we live in. It connects us, entertains us, inspires us and takes us places we never could have imagined.


Technology is everywhere, but it’s not the same for everyone. For most of us, the latest gadgets make our lives more interesting.  But, for kids with disabilities who often face barriers and challenges in the world, technology can do far more than that.

There are technologies that break through those barriers, enriching lives - changing lives. But they are expensive! And the financial burden on families is profound.
 

Communication Technology connects kids to the bigger world; 

Mobility Technology allows them greater access to that world;

Lift Technology helps move them through the everyday routines of life.
 

Easter Seals has mounted this campaign in support of these kids, these families – to fund the purchase of assistive and adaptive technology that quite simply changes the way lives will be lived.
 

Launching on #GivingTuesday and running though this holiday season, (December 1-31), we are reaching out to Canadians everywhere to participate and help raise the funds to purchase this much needed technology.
 

Our campaign goal is to raise $250,000.  If we all do our part—whatever that might be—we will be closer to realizing that goal and making the New Year ahead filled with incredible possibility for kids living with disabilities who live in each and every province across this great country.

15% of the world identifies as having a disability According to the World Health Organization, 15% of the world’s population (an estimated 1.1 billion people) identify as having some form of disability. This represents the world’s largest minority, and the only minority group that any of us can become a member of at any time.
