     "These Easter Seals recently arrived at my home, perhaps you have received some, too.
​I wonder if you realize the many ways in which Easter Seals serves those of our children who need our special help. The crippled children.
​These Seals symbolize an amazing record of human service. They help provide care and treatment so that these children can learn to walk and talk, play and laugh like other boys and girls.

They offer a road back from over one hundred crippling conditions. I'm sure you're as concerned as I am about these little boys and girls. They need our special help so they can have rich, happy, useful lives. We can all help by giving to Easter Seals. Please give generously. Thank you."​

Production: Easter "seals" were first launched to the public in 1934. The seals were placed on letters and envelopes in recognition of support for the organization The National Society For Crippled Children. Easter seals were so popular that in 1967 the organization changed it's name to "Easterseals", which is still an active organization.
