E Bunny 2014 Gearing Up For Annual Easter Basket Drive
BEYOND the glitz of the Las Vegas Strip, thousands of children live impoverished... many homeless, in temporary housing, shelters and even in cars. Since 1990, E Bunny has found the way to their hearts!
Since 1990, businesses, schools, clubs, the entertainment community and generous individuals have come together to raise Easter baskets for kids who wouldn't otherwise receive one. They hold basket drives with their employees, customers, cast-mates and friends. Some create a “community giving” fund, and authorize a team to buy and donate baskets. E Bunny doesn’t take cash donations; only store-purchased Easter baskets that go directly to the children.
Those receiving baskets in 2013 include: Clark County School District (Title 1 Hope); Candlelighters Childhood Cancer Foundation; Children’s Hospital of Nevada at UMC; Family Promise; Safe House (Henderson); Safe Nest; Shield of Hope; Casa De Luz (Naked City); Nevada Division of Welfare (for children without other services); LVPD (various command areas); Las Vegas Rescue Mission; Las Vegas City Mission; Straight From The Streets; and hundreds of others, on an individual basis.
E Bunny brings the spirit of giving to children and their families, letting them know others in the community care. But, this Vegas tradition doesn't happen without community support.
Here's how we all can help this year:
1. Purchase an Easter Basket a child would love by April 11, 2014 . Baskets can be dropped at E Bunny’s workshop, 6650 Spencer St., Las Vegas, 89119. Additional drop-off locations will be posted on Facebook as Easter nears. (https://www.facebook.com/
Pre-packaged baskets, the ones you see at any grocery, drugstore, or retail store are requested. Although we love handmade baskets, store purchased baskets are built to stay intact during handling and travel
2. Inspire others! Get your kids, family, friends, neighbors & co-workers involved
3. Hold an Easter Basket Drive in your school, church, club, social group or at your business
4. Spread the word! E-mail this message to your contact list and let others know what our community can do when we all come together!
