Dear CENTURY 21® Brand Ambassador,
In 1907, Ohio-Businessman Edgar Allen lost his son in a streetcar accident. The lack of adequate medical services available to save his son prompted Allen to sell his business and begin and fund-raising campaign to build a hospital in his hometown of Elyria, Ohio. Through this new hospital, Allen was surprised to learn that children with disabilities were often hidden from public view. Inspired by this discovery, Allen founded what became Easterseals in 1919, the first organization of its kind.
Easterseals has grown to serve over one million children and adults with disabilities and their families each year, to address life's challenges and achieve personal goals through a variety of programs and facilities nationwide. And today, Allen's words still inspire generations of supporters and volunteers - "Your life and mine shall be valued not by what we take ... but by what we give."
The CENTURY 21® System started to work with Easterseals in 1979. Since then, independent brokers and agents have held countless fundraising campaigns to make a difference in their local communities, and to raise millions of dollars in contributions for Easterseals.
