Ways to Fundraise
There are several ways to participate in the Kids to Camp fundraising initiative. You can give online through the Closing Gifts for Kids program, create an online peer to peer fundraising event or participate in an array of CENTURY 21 and Easter Seals signature events. See all of the options below.
General Online Gift
You can make an online gift with a credit card at any time when visiting www.c21kidstocamp.ca. It’s easy, and tax receipts are issued for gifts $20 and higher online at the time of the donation. Once you have located your personal page, you can send that link to your family and friends and they can donate directly to your page as well.
Closing Gifts for Kids
Launched a number of years ago, Closing Gifts for Kids lets System members thank their customers for their business by making a charitable donation in their name.
Here is how it works:
For every purchase or sale of a property, you commit to donating $21 to Easter Seals in the name of your client. You can make that donation online at www.c21kidstocamp.ca aand receive your tax receipt at the time of each transaction or closing or donate through your office and receive a manual tax receipt.
Then – to let your client know you have made this donation in their honour, you can send a personalized Ecard to their email address. Just click here to access cards.
Your personal and office fundraising pages are already set up so you can start donating right away at www.c21kidstocamp.ca.
Send a Kid to Camp: Peer to Peer Online Campaigns
Crowdfunding is everywhere and you too, can become a successful fundraiser using the crowdfunding platform on www.c21kidstocamp.ca.
Once you have found your personal page on the site, all you do is register to initiate your campaign to raise $2500 to send a kid to camp. It’s that easy. You can upload photos, video, customize the content on your page and send the link to all your friends, family and colleagues. Have them participate in your successful campaign – if everyone give a little – it won’t take long before you have surpassed your personal goals. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like any assistance starting up your campaign.
Easter Seals Drop Zone
The super heroes of CENTURY 21 Canada have been rappelling off high buildings across the country for many years – all to raise funds for Easter Seals.
For more than 90 years, Easter Seals has challenged Canadians with disabilities to live life actively, embracing opportunities and pushing boundaries to contribute to the well-being of themselves and their communities. The Easter Seals Drop Zone once again challenged participants to do the same!
With hearts pounding, pulses racing and knees shaking, more than 820 daring participants challenged themselves and changed lives, by participating in 14 local Drop Zone events across Canada. Each rappeller must raise between $1,500 and $2,000 (depending on location) through online and offline donations in order to participate.
Thanks to a monumental effort and the generosity of all our rappellers, sponsors, donors and volunteers, the 2015 Drop Zone raised more than $1.5 million – helping to ensure that all Canadians with disabilities have access to the life-changing equipment, technology, programs and support services they need to make the most of their abilities.
Here are the locations and dates for the 2016 Drop Zone Campaign. Visit www.thedropzone.ca and sign up as a CENTURY 21 rappeller; all your fundraising during the Drop Zone will be allocated to your personal page at here at www.c21kidstocamp.ca.

Easter Seals Woman2Warrior Event
WE KNOW THERE IS A WARRIOR IN THE HEART OF EVERY WOMAN. She is STRONG, DETERMINED and POWERFUL. Challenge yourself, challenge others and register for the 2016 Woman2Warrior, a women’s only charity obstacle adventure race benefiting Easter Seals Camps in British Columbia and Alberta.
Woman2Warrior is a non-timed run covering about 5km of trails, track, and grass. The course features obstacles to test your strength, agility, balance, and sense of adventure. You may enter as an individual or as a team, but each person must raise a minimum $300 to participate. There will be awards & prizes for the top overall fundraisers and finishers. Recruit the support of friends, family and coworkers to help you reach your fundraising goal.
By participating in Woman2Warrior you’ll be helping to send more than 1800 kids and young adults with disabilities throughout BC and Alberta for a week long camping experience at one of four Easter Seals accessible camps. Easter Seals camps give children and young adults abilities. Campers are encouraged to try new things, take risks in a safe and supportive environment, but most importantly HAVE FUN!
