Easter Seals NL is now offering a really cool t-shirt as a fundraiser to support their life-changing programs and services for persons with disabilities. The shirt says "see ABILITY in disABILITY", which is a message that I strongly believe in!

Things are changing in our society because people are working hard to change stereotypes, to recognize abilities and to tear down walls of discrimination. We are creating a culture that fully accepts and includes all individuals, regardless of ability.

My son, Brennen has been involved with Easter Seals since he was very young. He has participated in the Music Therapy program, swimming and Summer camps. We take part in family events and holiday parties. We have met many friends and made some wonderful connections with families through Easter Seals, and though the needs of our children may be different, our wants for them are the same. We want them to be happy. We want them to know joy and love and acceptance. We want them to flourish.

"Easter Seals NL is a charitable organization that has operated in this province since 1937. Since then we have tirelessly dedicated ourselves to engaging, inspiring and empowering persons with disabilities through life-changing programs and services.

More than 1500 people in our province live with disabilities such as spina bifida, cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy, amputation, and other conditions that seriously limit their mobility and present barriers to full participation in society. It is our mission to tear down these barriers and build an inclusive Newfoundland and Labrador."

See ability in disability. See the difference; be the difference. It is time for change.

Join with us in raising awareness and creating more opportunities for individuals with disabilities, and greater support for families like mine.
