Here’s 5 steps to get you started!
1. Gather your Easter eggs (or a gift of your choosing)
(a) Set up a ShareTheMiracle Station and receive donations of eggs – why not ask people to donate a nest of eggs (e.g. 10, 50, 100, 500) OR
(b) Ask an individual or company to sponsor eggs (e.g. a local supermarket, business proprietor) OR
(c) Welcome donations from which to buy eggs – don’t forget to negotiate with the supplier! OR
(d) Buy eggs from a local store or via our website. Click HERE for more details
*ShareTheMiracle may be able to offer groups chocolate eggs/donations as resources permit
2. Decide what you’d like to invite people to
An invitation is a great way to form friendships and build community. You choose what to invite people to but here are a few ideas to get you started:
Schools: Open day, concert, quiz, exhibition
Businesses: Product launch, volunteer for ShareTheMiracle, Family fun day, other CSR initiative
Churches: Easter service, youth group, parent & toddlers group, luncheon club, movie night
Local Councils: Intergenerational project, community event, family fun day
Neighbours: Street party, dinner, a coffee
Who do you want to connect with? Examples could include your Neighbours, the homeless person at the end of your street, the elderly, Saturday shoppers, colleagues in the office or those unwell in hospital. Be creative!
This will be different for each group and align with your local vision and passions. What’s happening in your community? What are the needs? Where are your passions? Decide with whom you’d like to engage and be creative!
Use your network. What individuals/groups are you already working with? What existing contacts do you have?
