CHICAGO, April 19, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Dozens of the nation's most iconic national landmarks will "Light Up Orange" to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of Easterseals, which takes place on Monday, April 22, 2019.

Easterseals Celebrates 100th Anniversary (PRNewsfoto/Easterseals)

Easterseals, the nation's largest nonprofit healthcare organization, delivers life-changing services and provides powerful advocacy for the one in four Americans who live with disabilities today through a national network of 70 community-based affiliates.

Though Easterseals was founded in 1919, its eponymous "Easter Seals" were created in 1934 and affixed to outgoing mail so that individuals and companies could show their support for changing the lives of people with disabilities.

For a modern twist on the Easter Seal, Easterseals invites Americans to capture pictures of the landmarks and share them on social media to celebrate Easterseals' centennial. Participation will support the ongoing work of Easterseals to ensure that everyone ? regardless of age or ability ? is 100% included and 100% empowered. Individuals should tag Easterseals (@EastersealsHQ) and use the hashtag #Easterseals100.

National lightings will be observed from April 18 through April 26. See below for a full list, by market, of national buildings and landmarks that will "Light Up Orange" to recognize the impact delivered by Easterseals in communities nationwide throughout its 100-year history as it begins its second century of service to America.  For photos and/or video of the lightings visit http://bit.ly/EastersealsLightUpOrange.
