We invite you to take part in this year’s Real Easter Egg campaign.
In 2010 churches help found The Meaningful Chocolate Company by placing orders for the first Real Easter Eggs.
We still rely on our supporters to encourage people to buy a Real Easter Egg for family and friends as a simple way of sharing the Good News.The Real Easter Egg is the only Fairtrade egg which includes a 24 page copy of the Easter story in each box and which supports charitable projects.
How you can help
Last year hundreds of churches placed orders directly with us in quantities ranging from 12-1,000 eggs. Direct sales are very important for our company to trade.
So we need a champion to encourage people to buy directly from us. The best way to collect orders is for a champion (maybe you) to use the posters and flyers on this site (here) to generate interest, encourage people to switch and collect orders. Then go online to buy.
A gift for individuals and groups
This year there are three types of Eggs designed as personal gifts and there is also our sharing box designed for larger events of The National Real Easter Egg Hunt. Each egg has a new edition of the Easter story in the box. The Original, Dark and Special Edition Eggs are designed to be a personal gift for people of all ages. For people looking to buy for Children’s Easter events, Messy Church or for outreach giveaways, we have our Sharing Boxes. This year we are also launching the National Real Easter Egg Hunt which is a chance to reach out to the wider community using our Sharing Box.
