Rotary and Easter Seals has very close connection ...

The Foundation’s first grant $500 in 1930.  Benefited International Society for Crippled Children (also known as Easter Seals).

Why the International Society for Crippled Children?

Rotary member Edgar F. Allen started the International Society for Crippled Children (Easter Seals) in 1919, after his work to build a hospital in his hometown of Elyria, Ohio, USA, had made him aware that children with disabilities were often hidden from public view. Other Rotary members were also working to help children with disabilities, and Rotary’s 1922 convention encouraged clubs to take similar action. Hence, Easter Seals seemed a logical choice for the Foundation's support.
