Easter Seals New Hampshire Campers
One former Camper, turned Camp Counselor, from Easter Seals New Hampshire explains, “As a person with a disability I get ‘special’ treatment everyday but from the second I get to camp I get to see what ‘normal’ feels like. I like having people rely on me, because it’s usually me relying on others. When you have a disability, you are trying to stand out without having people stare at what makes you different. When you are at Camp everyone notices you for being yourself.”
Friendly’s Restaurants, LLC, has supported Easter Seals since 1981 with nearly $28.5 million through Cones for Kids. With the help of generous consumers, 18 Easter Seals affiliate organizations will benefit from this powerful campaign created by Friendly’s Restaurants up and down the East Coast.

Friendly’s has funded the redesign and update of Easter Seals’ award winning disability awareness curriculum FRIENDS WHO CARE®. FRIENDS WHO CARE® is designed to help children better understand what it means and how it feels to be a young person with a disability. Easter Seals thanks Friendly’s for their tremendous support in making this possible.
