Hot Cocoa 4 Kids event raises more than $21,000 to support Easter Seals

Vancouver, BC (December 19, 2017) – Each year, CENTURY 21 Canada recognizes “National Hot Cocoa Day” with a fundraiser for Easter Seals. This year we were proud to connect Easter Seals with REW (Real Estate Webmasters), which generously donated $21,000 to the Kids to Camp program.

“We were introduced to Easter Seals program through our partners at CENTURY 21 Canada. It’s a phenomenal program, the money stays local. We met some of their ambassadors and it’s in line with how we think about charity. All of our charity giving is to do with families and children,” says Carey.

Founder Morgan Carey, saw Easter Seals National Ambassador Brandon Liston speak at the C21® Canada Conference and learned how the Kids to Camp program helps kids and families living with disabilities.

Easter Seals BC/Yukon President Charlene Krepiakevich says that the money will be appreciated by kids across the country. “Every summer, thousands of kids across Canada take part in these camps and they look forward to them months in advance. They are inspired and empowered and gain confidence so that when they get back into the community they are more confident. This donation truly makes a difference in the lives of these kids.”

“It’s such an important cause because it’s all about the local kids,” says Brian Rushton, Executive Vice-President of CENTURY 21 Canada. “We’ve supported Easter Seals since 1979 and have raised more than $117 million dollars. We’re very pleased to help companies like REW expand their philanthropic footprint an increase the number of kids who can go to camp.”

With this $21,000 donation, REW hopes one child can be sent to camp in each province.
