Easter "seals" are stamp-like seals that were first created in 1934 to raise money for services benefiting children with disabilities. Then known as the National Society for Crippled Children, the organization was re-named "Easter Seals" in 1967, reflecting the public's awareness and acceptance of the campaign.
