Dozens of people, young and old, headed out into gardens and parks in the weeks leading up to Easter for the CMM fundraiser, My Easter Egg Hunt.

My Easter Egg Hunt raised $3000 for low income families around Ōtautahi/Christchurch who require services offered by CMM. The idea was simple. Chocolate Easter eggs were produced and sold for Easter egg hunts, with hunt organisers requesting sponsorship from people who took part.

Fundraising manager Dave Marsh said My Easter Egg Hunt could not have taken place without the support of Trade Aid and She Universe both of which offered time and resources to produce 3500 delicious eggs. Trade Aid supplied the fair trade chocolate which She Universe melted to create the eggs.

Our eggs were used by Black Cat Cruises for its annual Quail Island Easter egg hunt. “This campaign ticked all the boxes,” Dave says.

“It used ethically produced chocolate, which benefitted cacao growers in economically poor countries, and the talents of a local chocolate making company. Volunteers spent a fun evening wrapping the eggs and the proceeds of the sale and sponsorship will make a real difference in the lives of Canterbury families.”

We thank you for your support and will let you know when eggs are ready for next year’s hunt.
