Spirit Army Easter Goodies Appeal

A mum and dad took their children Easter Egg shopping, letting the kids choose what eggs they liked. Is this helicopter parenting gone mad? In fact, the children were choosing Easter treats not for themselves but for children in Invercargill who may not get any – this is parenting to stimulate empathy for others and a sense of community.

The goodies were dropped on the porch at 73 Lindisfarne St. And it’s even easier to give with the donor trolley at New World Windsor. There’s a trolley marked SPIRIT ARMY EASTER HAMPER at the end of check out at Windsor New World. Ashley and Sasha Hunter and the keen team of “Easter Bunnies” at the supermarket love seeing the trolley fill up and contribute themselves.

Basic groceries are just as important as Easter eggs to families on the cusp of winter.

Some businesses get into the Easter spirit by contributing as a staff and making one big hamper. Friends get together and do the same.

Others simply make a donation to the Spirit Army Account: 031369 033544601, marked “Easter Hamper”.

The Spirit Army is a community of 29 families and ever growing.

Manager, Gerry Forde can be contacted at [email protected] or through the Spirit Army facebook page.
