The RELX Group
Hundreds of employees engaged by donating chocolate eggs for those less fortunate locally. For the first time offices in the USA, Brazil and the Netherlands took part reaching out to many in their local communities with a simple act of kindness. #CSR #EmployeeEngagement
The Metropolitan Police
The Police community team collected eggs donated from colleagues and local businesses and distributed them to several local charities including Age UK, St Raphael’s Hospice and the Royal Marsden Hospital. The police car full of eggs helps represents the fun found in simple acts of kindness.
Sir Vince Cable and Tom Brake MP
Tom Brake MP collected 161 chocolate eggs at his constituency office. He was overwhelmed by the extraordinary generosity of local residents and reached out to Tweeddale Children’s Centre, the homeless charity Sutton Night Watch and several food banks as well.
“The ShareTheMiracle Initiative is a great idea to breathe life into the spirit of Easter, emphasising generosity and sharing” Sir Vince Cable
Carshalton Beeches Baptist Church
Over the last 6 years the Church has collected hundreds of chocolate eggs and given 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
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. In this particular case, 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
The council arranged for pupils at St Barnabas Primary School to attend Pullen Day Centre where they presented eggs and ShareTheMiracle Easter cards to residents. The children then held a musical performance where joy and dancing broke out! A wonderful intergenerational occasion that helped ‘put a dent in loneliness’ 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.
