Dear Friend,

Smiling childWith 50 million people with disabilities across the country, the need for Easter Seals life-changing work continues to grow. But we are making progress every day thanks to you. We encourage you to help us call attention to the experience of people with disabilities, and to raise awareness of and advocate for the services they need.
  • The president's budget recommends a much-needed increase for the federal early intervention program. But we need to convince Congress that this program needs to be a high priority. Sign our Make The First Five Count petition. Help us break last year’s record of 40,000 signatures!
  • Spread the word about our Ages and Stages Questionnaire. To date, thousands of parents have used this free online developmental milestone tool to track their child's development.
  • It's Spring and that means thousands of supporters like you are signing up online for Easter Seals Walk With Me events across the country. Find an event near you and join in the fun!
