Great Eggs-pectations

empty basket

Easter is next week, and I know families have different traditions for Easter treats. When we were young, the Easter Bunny would come to the house at night, while we were asleep, and hide goody-filled baskets. My brother and I would wake up early, before church, so we could search the house and indulge in some chocolate before heading out for the day. I’m sure children in BS will be waking up, excited to hunt Easter eggs, or see what the Bunny left in their basket. But, there are many who will go without; who often go without. Well, you can help brighten a child’s day! Operation Easter Basket seeks to bring joy and hope to children in desperate situations through gift-filled Easter baskets. You can create baskets filled with small toys, some candy, school supplies, and more. You can take up a collection at school, church, or work. You can simply make a tax-deductible donation. You can volunteer. These baskets are distributed to local organizations such as Rescue Missions, Family Centers, Housing Developments, Child Family Services, and so many more worthy groups. I’m not really one of those people who goes around spouting famous quotes, but today, I feel like one of Gandhi’s is appropriate: In a gentle way, you can shake the world
