Easter Seals

Each year, the office where I work participates in several charity events. One of these is competition in the Office Olympix to benefit the Easter Seals organization. Easter Seals' mission is to help provide exceptional services to ensure that all people with disabilities have equal opportunity to live, learn, work and play.

To be able to compete in the Office Olympix, each team must raise an "entry fee," of which 100% goes to support Easter Seals' programs. We raise money through bake sales, the office snack fund, a pay-to-dress-casual day, and individual donations. Then we go and compete against other teams from across the community in such events as "swivel chair relay."

I am not normally a fan of asking people for money, for my sake or for the sake of others. But I did want to make a post about Easter Seals and Office Olympix, in hopes that perhaps some of you were planning on making a donation to Easter Seals already, and might consider making the donation through my office's website.

If this is the case, or if you would simply like to know more about Easter Seals, please visit this link. I, and all the members of the "YCPC Planning Platoon" are greatly appreciative :)

PS: The picture on the website does not include me, it was taken the year before I started working at YCPC (York Co. Planning Comm.).

Thank you!
