- Why are you doing this?
To show intentional acts of kindness at Easter – kindness that helps start new conversations, strengthen friendships and release fresh hope across our local communities – everyone can join in and play their part. We believe that we’re all ‘designed for kindness’ and that the giving of a small gift such as an Easter Egg could be a catalyst to change someone’s life or situation
- How do I (capture and) ‘ShareTheMiracle’?
We say ‘Write it, Snap it, Film it, Share it!’ and post it to one of the online ShareTheMiracle platforms:
- I’m a chocolate manufacturer/supplier/Willy Wonka, how can I get involved?
Hello! We would love to hear from you. Any support that you can give will help support and strengthen local communities up and down the country. Do contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
- Where does the money go?
If you have been encouraged to contribute financially to the project, BIG thanks to you!
Your money is used to help run and promote ShareTheMiracle which helps even more people of those who are poor and marginalised at Easter.
- What is expected of me?
We very much hope that you will carefully consider to whom each egg is given and not be in a rush to move on! The focus is on quality time not just quantity…
- What came first the chicken or the egg?
Ha! Cheeky – did you really ask this? Well it’s the million dollar question and if we knew that we’d be giving eggs to the WHOLE world this Easter. Next year!
- I don’t eat chocolate (or, my neighbour doesn’t eat chocolate), what else can I do?
Excellent question. We don’t want anyone to be left out. If you know that the person you intend to give to has some form of food allergy why not consider giving an Easter card, toy or another small gift.
- What are the origins of Easter eggs?
Eggs have been used throughout the ages, initially as a symbol of new life, purity or fertility and later provided a symbol of resurrection and new life. The custom of decorating and colouring eggs dates back to the Middle Ages, papier-mâché eggs to the 18th century and then the first chocolate eggs appeared in the 19th century, with the earliest ones being completely solid.
