Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH)
ShareTheMiracle partnered with the long-term volunteer group at GOSH to visit children in the hospital. The joint team of volunteers spent the day visiting each ward and reaching out to children with an act of kindness. Children were given a soft toy and an invitation to the Teddy Bears Picnic event run at the hospital, which helped build community.
ShareTheMiracle was able to provide the soft toys thanks to the kind donations of supporters like you
Carshalton Beeches Baptist Church
Members purchased 500 chocolate eggs from a local supermarket for £1 each and gave them away with personal invitations to their Easter service. They split into groups engaging neighbours, local shopkeepers and people in the street. The Church found this to be a simple, fun and inclusive tool that allowed members of all ages to reach out into the community together
The council arranged for pupils at St Barnabas Primary School to attend Pullen Day Centre where they presented eggs and sharethemiracle easter invitation cards to residents. The children then held a musical performance where joy and dancing broke out! A wonderful intergenerational occasion and the school has already organised a follow up visit.
Richmond Park Academy School
Ten students from years 7-10 (age 11-14 years) ran sharethemiracle at the school (Year 10 kids included the gifted and talented media group). The group was mixed (male and female) and was made up of volunteers. The students ran two separate sharethemiracle events:
1. Students created Easter nests and knocked on the doors of those in the local community with an adult present. People were given a card and invited to look round the school
2. Students went up to the city of London for a RAOK (random act of kindness day). The school obtained a license from the local council and gave eggs to city workers with an invitation to be interviewed on camera!
The Chocolate Eggs were sponsored by a business in London.
