What defines a disabled person? I see folks who have lost limbs riding their motorcycles like nothing is different about them. I see folks with a "handicapped" placard on their license plate or rear view mirror but they "look" physically OK. There are people born with disabilities that we can see, like Downs Syndrome and those we cannot see. There are folks who have suffered a serious physical or mental injuries fighting in Nam, Korea, the Gulf, Panama, Iraq, The United States, and other places you and I don't know about. I want to Thank these Veterans for fighting for our right to remain free. There are over 54 million people nationwide with disabilities, I'm just naming a few types of disabilities off the top of my head.
Easter Seals helps over One Million People A Year nationwide by providing different types of services to them and their families to help improve their lives. These services can be improving the disabled person's mobility, learning how to rejoin the workforce, "or simply gain greater independence for everyday living".
Since 1979 Century 21® has been a major sponsor to Easter Seals and is a "National Founding Sponsor" I've known that Century 21® supported Easter Seals and is a very proud sponsor, but until today I've never known in what capacity. One of the major programs Century 21® participates in to help raise money for Easter Seals is the Walk With Me event. Participating in events such as this Century 21® has raised over 90 MILLION dollars for Easter Seals. If you would like to learn more about this program please click on here..
