Easter Bunny needs your help!

Three months zooms by so fast, doesn't it? Three months ago, Frosty and Elf Rita were packing their sleigh full of toys and surprises for their Christmas visit to Wesley Hospital. And what a joyful visit it was, plus the local news came along to capture the value of this visit for all to see.

Now, with the spirit of the giving season behind us, Easter Bunny & Eggbert are hoping we can tap into that holiday generosity to make their Easter visit possible, too. For those of you new to the blog, this is how Easter Bunny's first visit started. Since 2007, she & Eggbert have been bringing baskets of cheer to an otherwise anxiety-filled place, a place where children are frustrated and parents try to hide their anguish. You wouldn't believe how much a sheet of stickers or a $10 gift card can do!

From Easter Bunny:

Happy Easter!
Susan Jae & Rita
