Brisbane Boys’ College make Easter ‘egg-stra’ special

23 April 2014





For most kids, Easter is filled with excitement and anticipation of an egg hunt on Easter Sunday but sadly some kids don’t know what it’s like to celebrate Easter.

Brisbane Boys’ College students have shared their joy, chocolate and goodwill with the kids who need it most by generously donating hundreds of Easter eggs to help brighten the Easter holidays for abused and neglected kids.

CEO of Act for Kids, Dr Neil Carrington, said it is fantastic to see so many students getting behind our cause and wanting to make Easter extra special for kids and families who are less fortunate.

“We are very grateful for the support we have received from BBC for the last seven years. The students continue to help us spread Easter cheer and we hope that this partnership will continue onwards to help those who miss out on what should be a joyous celebration,” Dr Carrington said.

One of our volunteers, Jenny Hayes, single-handedly packaged up the gifts for distribution to kids and families living in Brisbane and the Fraser Coast region. The small surplus of Easter eggs were given to Kirrawe Indigenous Corporation, serving the needs of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people living on the Gold Coast.

Thanks to Brisbane Boys’ College, we have all the eggs we need. If you’d like to give a gift this Easter, you can give a gift that really means something by donating as gift.
