Action Aid UK is asking you to give something a little different this Easter as a present. Since the dawn of time, the question that has flummoxed some of the greatest minds on the planet has been –
‘What came first, the chicken, or the egg?’
and this Easter, you can answer it in your own inimitable way! Now, everyone knows that for Easter it is traditional to give a chocolate egg to a friend or loved one, but not this year. We at Donation4Charity are drawing a line in the sand and saying, NO, you shall not receive a chocolately treat that will leave you feeling sick!
THIS Easter, why not treat a friend or a loved one to an Action Aid Gifts in Action chicken? Now, you might be sitting there thinking, what on earth am I going to do with a chicken. But this is no ordinary chicken!
No need to pluck or feed this one, as what you’ll actually be purchasing is a vital source of both nutrients and money for a family in desperate need of your help. The eggs provided by your gift of a chicken will not only provide a fantastic source of food, but can also be sold at the market to help pay for medicine and school fees.
Gladys Chiselani, from Malawi, said –
By selling eggs, I can afford to feed my family and buy clothes for my children.
With over 80 million chocolate Easter eggs being devoured across the UK every year, isn’t it possible that this money could be spent on something a little more worthwhile? Hey, I’m all up for a bit of chocolate, but the amount of money spent on 80 million Easter eggs could surely have gone on something as as opposed to violent stomach cramp!
The recipient of your charity gift will also receive the choice of a physical card or a virtual e-card that can be sent on the day, perfect for those last minute gifts.
So why not surprise someone this Easter, with a chicken, and not an egg, and help someone less fortunate than yourself to a better life…
