The Hope Church of St. Charles’ Team “Get Your Hopes up” has found a new way to get the Easter Rabbit to help raise money for the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life.
The fundraiser is called “Egg my Yard” and allows individuals to buy candy-filled eggs that team members will deliver and will even scatter in the front lawn. Deliveries will be made on Easter-Eve. On Easter morning, the kids find the yard covered in eggs.
“Each egg order will contain one empty egg. This egg is a reminder of Jesus empty tomb.” The eggs are being bought pre-filled, which in itself is helping a nonprofit center that employs disabled people who do the stuffing.
While this idea came from a Relay For Life group, it could be easily adapted by your church group.
