Every year more than a million British Columbians opening their mailboxes are greeted by Lung Association Christmas seals.

A Christmas tradition for over 100 years, the Seals represent a proud tradition of yearly giving by British Columbians who support clean air and healthy lungs. In the early days, funds raised helped to combat tuberculosis. Today, the Christmas Seal Campaign helps the Lung Association fight new battles against lung cancer, asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), smoking and air pollution.

Those wishing to make a donation can do so by calling toll-free 1-800-665-5864.  Supporters can also visit www.bc.lung.ca for more information or to donate online.
