“Go Baby Go!” Sponsorship Program at Easter Seals Greater Houston
 
Providing modified, ride-on cars to young children with disabilities, so they can move around independently.
“Beyond mobility and socialization, Easter Seals Greater Houston hopes that your sponsorship/donation
and the assistive technology cars provide children with disabilities a chance to just be a kid.”
1 in 6 babies born in the U.S. has a developmental delay or disability, many with limited mobility.
By partnering with Easter Seals Greater Houston you are providing help, hope, and answers to over
14,000 families living with disabilities in the Greater Houston area each year. Your gift connects
children, adults, veterans, and service members with disabilities to the services they need to live their lives to the fullest potential. Join us in taking on #DisabilityTogether.

'Tis the Season
It's that time of year again...here are some ways you can help!

As you can imagine with the COVID-19 Pandemic, Easter Seals, like everyone else, has found alternative ways to serve our clients, especially since many are medically fragile. As such, all of our programs since early March have been through tele-health/virtual services (including our Walk With Me event!). In addition, we were honored to be on the receiving end of Houston and Montgomery / Harris Counties’ Emergency relief funds and since then have provided direct assistance to thousands for rental/utility assistance and more.

As such, we know first-hand that the need is greater than ever but also want to ensure we keep our families, staff and supporters safe. To this end, we are going to continue in holding our holiday family adoption but are amending it so that families can have somewhat of a holiday but that no one is unnecessarily exposed.

 

  • Help us Adopt Our Families in Need: We are asking for three main donations, easy to mail if need be, but nonetheless as effective and helpful: HEB gift cards (Large to small denominations), Walmart gift cards (Large to small denominations) and straight donations. Instead of specifically pairing families with adopters, we will keep a rolling list. Packages will be mailed/delivered as needs are met and as we go down the list, until we have reached the last family or the last donation.

  • Host a Holiday Drive: Host a corporate holiday drive at your office or get a group together to collect small items easily packaged or transported (socks, underwear, pajamas) for clients of Easter Seals Greater Houston that would otherwise go without during the holidays.

 

  • Shop GoodShop: You probably need to shop for the holidays anyway...why not use GoodShop? Choose Easter Seals Greater Houston as your charity and we will receive a portion of the proceeds from your purchase! Check it out.

 

  • Donate your end-of-life electronics to CompuCycle to support Easter Seals Greater Houston. Learn more.

 

** Be assured that after this process is over, you will receive personalized thank you notes from the beneficiaries and be featured in listings in our newsletter and website as contributors**

 

For more information, please contact Kelly Klein at 713.838.9050 x305.
