Media Release – Alberta Lung and Chrysalis Society Announce Partnership for 2023 Holiday Seals launch  

EDMONTON, ALBERTA (September 1, 2023) – Chrysalis Society, an esteemed organization dedicated to supporting and providing citizens with disabilities meaningful opportunities for growth and inclusion, and Alberta Lung, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping patients with lung disease, have partnered to create this year’s Holiday Seals.

At Alberta Lung, we take great pleasure in showcasing artwork created right here in Alberta, which is why we are collaborating with Chrysalis and their award-winning art program to produce 11 holiday seals that are exceptionally captivating and vibrant. Conditions such as cystic fibrosis, COPD, asthma, Down syndrome, and various other challenges – visible or not – can significantly impact an individual’s quality of life.

We recognize the shared struggles faced by individuals with lung diseases, which is why we are passionate about joining forces with Chrysalis. Our partnership is rooted in a mutual dedication to promoting diversity, fostering inclusivity, and combating the stigma associated with disabilities through educational initiatives.

Our 2023 Holiday Seals will be available in our October mail package with proceeds going towards funding world class research, programs, and services to assist Albertans with lung disease. We are encouraging all Albertans to utilize the seals on holiday cards and packages to show support for Albertans battling lung diseases during this holiday season and to donate generously.

Starting in October, we will also have the images as Holiday greeting cards for purchase on our website at www.ablung.ca. This is our largest fundraiser of the year and supports over 16 programs we provide for Albertans including funding for medications for those in need, pediatric breathing equipment so babies can leave the hospital sooner, education on lung health in schools, and many other vital programs. Please support Albertans with lung disease this year!

Since 1939, Alberta Lung has been funding support and services in Alberta, and all funds raised in Alberta; stay in Alberta.
