Free & Fit NYC/NJ - Share the Miracle Easter Campaign 2019

This Easter we collected Easter eggs in the  New York City, Hoboken, Old Tappan, Norwood and Harrington Park. We were very blessed as we met our overall collection of 150, we ended up with a collection over 500 Easter eggs or bunnies. In this process we gave out our donations on four different occasions to friends and those less fortunate on the build up to Easter.

On our first outing we went to the New York University where we gave out eggs to students, staff and faculty. As part of our campaign we had a stall with an Easter Bunny stop and we were able to stop, speak and engage with students about their studies and experience of Easter.

Some of the students responses were recorded and we wanted to share them with you here:

“Thank you for Sharing the Miracle of Easter with me”, “Thank you so much that is really kind of you to be so kind”, “WOW! FREE chocolate!” “Thank you so much, I really enjoy seeing you all here.” “Thank you for sharing Jesus with us.” “Thank you for doing this, its really kind”. “Thank you for helping me to study.” “Thank you very much for being here and sharing Easter. Well done and thank you. May God bless you.”

After our visit to New York University we went to the townships of Harrington Park and Old Tappan where we visited the Police, Fire, local services and businesses. We gave out Easter eggs, invited the community to local Church services and shared the stories of our previous UK #sharetheMiracle experiences and we  also extended an invitation to our upcoming Summer Camp in July this summer.

After we visited Old Tappan and Harrington Park on Good Friday we visited the Closter Plaza where we spoke to local business organisations about our mission to serve and grow community through the Arts, Sports, Service and Social Justice. We previously held Youth Starbucks, Hangouts and Movie nights on the Plaza so some of the staff were familiar with our team and were excited that we were still doing the work and sharing the Miracle through Easter Eggs with them!
